Jennie Byrne, MD, PhD

**Please Note: Dr. Byrne is no longer accepting new patients with CPCH.**


I am a board-certified adult psychiatrist who treats adults with dementia, attention deficit, anxiety, depression, and other mental health problems. I also have a doctorate in neurophysiology and have done extensive research on attention, memory and depression.

I trained in New York City for 12 years and relocated to North Carolina in 2008. My training at NYU and Mt Sinai was excellent and I was exposed to a wide variety of people and problems, but over time the pace became draining. I decided to move to Chapel Hill in search of a more balanced lifestyle, where I would be able to give more personalized attention to my patients, family, and friends.

My goal is to help you optimize your mood and thinking so that you can achieve your personal goals. I believe that good communication is essential to medical care and use the latest technology to actively communicate with patients, families, caregivers, and other health care providers. My treatment approach includes medication management, cognitive behavioral therapy, individual psychotherapy, cognitive testing, and psychoeducation.

I am a board-certified adult psychiatrist with subspecialty training in addiction psychiatry.

Originally from New Jersey, I found a second home in North Carolina during my residency training at Duke University. I spent a year away from the Tar Heel State completing my fellowship training in addictions at the Medical University of South Carolina in sunny Charleston, SC. I have happily traded coastal living for a return to the Triangle and all the diversity that it offers!

Given my specialty training, I have a great deal of experience treating a wide range of addictions including alcohol, opiates, marijuana, cocaine, and prescription medications just to name a few. However, I have found that in most individuals struggling with addiction issues, there is often also an ongoing battle against mood issues such as depression or anxiety. Thus, I strive to treat the client as a “whole” individual rather than focusing on one side of the addiction versus mood coin. Along those lines, I also have a great deal of experience treating a wide range of mental health problems including depression, generalized anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and bipolar disorder outside of the context of addiction.

My goal is to provide compassionate, timely, and evidence-based care so that you can get to feeling better and living the life that you want to live. My treatment approaches include medication management, cognitive behavioral therapy, supportive therapy, and motivational enhancement therapy.

Quinn McFall, LCMHC, LCAS

I believe that the most important aspect of counseling is the relationship developed between the client and myself.  I focus on the client as a holistic person.  Looking at all aspects of one’s life (family, career, health, spirituality, etc.) and how those important factors impact the whole person. Nothing is more important to the outcome of therapy than the absolute positive regard I have towards those I assist.  I believe that regardless of why one seeks emotional guidance, we all want to be reassured that we will be treated with respect and dignity.  That is a promise I make to each and every person I counsel.   


I specialize in the treatment of depression, anxiety, mood disorders and substance abuse.  I utilize evidence based practices including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Enhancement to help people resolve concerns and improve their quality of life.  I’m dedicated to physical wellness  to assist in  stress management and strengthening self-esteem and self-worth.        


I am a native to the gulf coast of Florida but have been in the triangle for 18 years.  I received my undergraduate degree from Sewanee; The University of the South, in Tennessee, and my graduate degree from East Carolina University, in Rehabilitation Counseling and Substance Abuse Counseling.  I am fully licensed as a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and a Licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist.  The field of psychotherapy is always evolving which is why I continually attend continuing education courses and follow new trends in the field to better serve my clients.
