When Addison discovered that her husband slept with Meredith at the hospital-sponsored prom, Addison in a drunken haze called Mark Sloan to Seattle.
She and Derek agreed that their marriage was over and started divorce proceedings. She asked Mark to go back to New York, but he stayed, expressing his desire to continue their relationship.
When the divorce was finalized, Addison dropped the "Shepherd" from her last name. Wanting to make a fresh start, Derek happily relinquished most of their shared properties their Brownstone in Manhattan and a residence in The Hamptons to her believing that she deserved it as his initial impression was that she had only had a one-night stand with Mark while he carried on an affair with Meredith.
She stayed in Seattle for a long while after and a possibility of a relationship between her and Alex Karev was hinted at when they kissed in Joe's bar.
She felt it was too strange though and he said he didn't care so the relationship was not brought ahead any further.
During the 60 days that Mark and Addison were trying to remain celibate to give themselves a chance, she slept with Alex. However, despite Addison wanting more, he wasn't ready for that.
After finding out Meredith and Derek slept together at the prom, she called Mark over to Seattle and slept with him again.
Mark decided to move to Seattle in hopes of pursuing a relationship with Addison. On the first anniversary of the day she discovered she was pregnant, Addison and Mark made a deal.
If they both could abstain from sex for 60 days she would be willing to try a real relationship with him. She doesn't hold up her end of the bargain when she engaged in a sexual encounter with Alex at the hospital.
Mark learned of this after witnessing them stumbling out of an on-call room. She was spared from confessing, however, when Mark selflessly lied to her by telling her he had broken their promise long before.
He felt that although he had feelings for her, she shouldn't have to feel guilty. They had sex several times, which prompted Addison to ask Mark if he truly wanted to have a relationship with her because she could make it work.
However, Mark was still in love with Lexie, so he apologized to Addison and turned her down. Later, Pete and Addison reconnected at a hospital event and went back to her house to have pizza and watch lame TV shows, and ended up having sex.
They started a relationship that they described as "helping each other" and Addison decided to move on from Sam since he was seemingly happy with his new girlfriend, making them officially a couple.
When Pete was sick and Addison was looking after Lucas, Pete said "I love you, Violet " to Addison while on fever medication, leading Addison to confront Pete six weeks later.
Pete states that he will always love Violet as she is the mother of his child, but he wants to be with Addison.
Violet returns from Costa Rica and Addison tells her that Pete will pick her because she is Lucas' mother.
Later on the porch, Sam tells Addison he is sick of doing the right thing and should do the wrong thing, and then kisses her as Pete walks in.
But more troubles came when Addison's brother came to visit and told Kevin that she was just "enjoying him". When he hadn't called Addison back; she had thought he was avoiding her, but would find out he had been shot.
When her brother left; Kevin moved in with her while he was recovering. While Addison now had to deal with Charlotte who was opening up a competing practice on the fourth floor, she was more annoyed by Dr.
Wyatt Lockhart , a doctor working for Charlotte's practice who steals a patient of Addison's and convinces Naomi to work for her.
In the midst of this relationship, Addison and Kevin's different lifestyles get in the way of their relationship leading to him moving out.
But Addison later calls him telling him she misses him, and they make up. However, Addison kisses Wyatt after seeing him for who he really is, not the arrogant, headline grabber she thought he was.
Kevin repeatedly questions her where she was that night and believes she's lying, Addison claims she was working, and just as Kevin was finally able to drop the questioning, she admits she kissed another man, and they break up.
As Addison goes to Wyatt to try a new relationship, she catches Naomi having sex with Archer instead. Noah and Addison frequently met in the scrub room over three months, one of them always finishing surgery and scrubbing out and one scrubbing in, leading to their greeting of "Finishing or starting?
They both continued to flirt, not knowing each other's names, and eventually meet in the doctor's lounge where Noah asks for her name. Looking shocked, he quickly leaves.
Addison later meets him as the husband of one of her pregnant patients, Morgan Gellman. Upon this discovery, Addison quickly removed herself from Morgan's case, as she was not comfortable with her feelings for Noah while she treated his wife, feelings which Noah reciprocates.
Addison decides not to make a move in their relationship, refusing to be a homewrecker, after her past mistakes with her ex-husband and his best friend.
Noah, however, asks her not to leave the case, as she is the best in her field and Morgan cannot lose another child she had a string of miscarriages before seeing Addison , and he will keep his feelings for Addison in check.
However, Noah cannot help the way he feels, and Morgan realizes her marriage is in jeopardy, asking Addison to save her child, as that is all that is keeping her and Noah together.
She says she sees it in Noah's eyes, he's there, but he's not quite there. When Addison has to perform surgery on Morgan, Noah is not there for her and Morgan is willing to put off the surgery to have Addison find Noah and he eventually does go into the OR to be there for Morgan, with a push from Addison.
Sam asked Addison out when they were in med school, but Addison declined because Naomi was in love with him.
When Addison moved to LA, she bought the house next door to Sam, leading to their developing friendship. Addison and Sam kissed after a hiking experience gone wrong while discussing what would have happened had Addison said yes to Sam in med school.
They kissed twice more and Sam propositioned Addison to develop their relationship, but Addison said no because Naomi was her best friend.
Sam dated another Neonatal surgeon, leading Addison to date Pete , although she still loved Sam, and she is seen constantly talking about him to Pete.
Sam and Addison had an off and on relationship for a long time. The main reason for their relationship troubles was that Addison wanted a child, but Sam had Maya, and Maya's daughter, and didn't want more kids.
After Addison adopted Henry, Sam seemingly accepted Henry. He even asked her to marry him after Addison and Jake had had sex.
When Addison's therapist told her to make a change in her life, she met Jake and they flirted over pineapples at the grocery store.
They started seeing each other at a coffee shop. However, they both agreed to keep their identities in secret.
Jake was going on vacation to Fiji and he asked Addison to come with him. She eventually accepted, but when at the airport, she realized it wasn't right to try to avoid Sam and the problems the practice was suffering.
When Jake interviewed for the fertility specialist opening at Oceanside Wellness, Addison was horrified because she recognized him as her former doctor.
She was strongly opposed to the practice hiring him, but she ran out of excuses not to, as he was the perfect candidate for the job. Jake began working at the practice, and Addison made him not mention their previous encounters to Sam, who she was dating at the time of Jake's arrival.
Addison began fertility treatments with Jake as her doctor. He helped her through her two failed IVFs and also to try to find a surrogate.
She was extremely drunk and stumbled into his hotel room, where she asked him if he wanted to sleep with her.
He turned her down, saying that it was the alcohol talking and that she would regret it in the morning.
When Addison woke the following morning, she remembered what had happened and was thoroughly embarrassed.
Jake once asked her if their relationship was purely physical because he cared about her, but she was sending him mixed signals. Addison confirmed that it was not just physical, but also emotional.
Their relationship grew over time. When Jake was talking to his daughter, Angela, he told her that it wasn't Addison sending the mixed signals; it was him.
Addison proposed to Jake shortly before Henry's adoption, and was thoroughly humiliated when he didn't answer; but after a talk with the ghost of his late wife, he accepted.
They later got married. After moving to L. Upon her return, Addison didn't expect much change; but soon learned that since her departure a lot had changed - for example, the break up of Meredith and Derek and his relationship with Rose , Callie's divorce and the breakdown of Bailey's marriage.
During her stay there she met Callie's new friend Erica Hahn and mistakenly interpreted their friendship as a relationship.
The mother and child both survived the surgery and Addison prepared to leave Seattle and return to L.
A, telling Richard that she needed to come back to see how much she liked her new life. She left, but not before finding Meredith and telling her that she wasn't allowed to let Derek get away.
Addison betrayed Naomi by confronting Sam with something about the practice. Naomi dropped her friendship with Addison and refused to talk to her.
Eventually, she and Naomi began to mend their friendship and at last came back to being best friends. Addison despite her rocky start got on well with her new colleagues and friendships were rekindled as she was friends with Naomi and Sam years ago , friendships were started Violet, Dell, and Coop and even a short time relationship occurred with her now friend, Pete.
When Naomi left for New York, Addison and Violet became very close, discussing relationship woes and Lucas situations, and just generally they were pretty close.
When Amelia came to L. Addison is considered one of the best surgeons in her field in the world, having patients travel across the country to receive medical and surgical care from her, helped by her excellent bedside manner.
She formerly worked at Seattle Grace Hospital , before her relocation to Los Angeles to join a private practice. When she relocated, her surgical practice became limited, with her practice being mostly obstetric work and occasional genetic counseling with Naomi.
However, she does have surgical privileges at St. Ambrose Hospital , allowing her to conduct her own surgeries, which is a right she exercises frequently.
Charlotte King also calls on Addison to consult and take on complex medical cases from the hospital, which increases her OR time. She completed her surgical residency under the supervision of her now good friend, Richard Webber.
During her residency, Richard gave Addison a patient who would not survive, to teach Addison to not get too emotionally involved with her patients, as a result, Addison avoided Richard for almost a year.
As an attending, she repeated the same trick with Izzie Stevens and one of the quintuplets the hospital was taking care of. Addison was Vivian's smartest student, eventually surpassing Vivian's skill.
Addison's training also encompasses why she is regarded as one of the best surgeons in her field: she is board certified in obstetrics and gynecology with her sub-specialty in maternal-fetal medicine , board-certified in neonatal surgery , and has completed a fellowship in medical genetics , specializing in cystic fibrosis.
She is very open about her credentials and has relayed them to patients, co-workers, and subordinates that have doubted her abilities. When she arrived at the practice she was surprised to discover that Naomi, who gave her the job offer, didn't tell the rest of the staff about Addison.
The other doctors showed Addison that she was clearly not welcome. On her first day in the practice, she performed surgery in an unsterilized delivery room only with the help of Alternative Medicine Specialist, Pete.
On the end of the same day, they decided to vote on whether Addison should join the practice or not but Addison put her foot down and told them that she was going to stay even if they wanted her gone.
Everyone was impressed by her speech and they decided not to vote after all. When Richard Webber asked Addison to return for a complex surgery , she agreed, and at the end of the day, Richard attempts to get her back and letting her start the next morning.
Addison declined the offer, being sure that leaving was the right thing to do. Similarly, when Naomi would not speak to Addison, Addison took several surgeries at St.
Ambrose to relieve her frustrations. Charlotte tried to woo her to the hospital with the surgeries but Addison declared the practice as her 'home'.
Not long after moving to Los Angeles, Addison learned that the practice was failing financially so confronted Sam and the two formed a hostile takeover.
In a bid to get the practice back to how it used to be Addison accidentally prompted a vote between Sam and Naomi , but was stunned when she was elected to lead the practice as Addison's leadership shone through.
Later, Addison dissolved the practice, funded the change, and renamed it to Seaside Health and Wellness.

She was, once again, left without a child of her own. When Addison was operating, she realized it would be riskier than she thought.
She was confident she could continue successfully, but Mark insisted that she stop. However, he later traveled with Sloan to Los Angeles so Addison could perform it.
She did so successfully. The night Pete had a heart attack, Addison sat with Lucas and kept him comfortable until Violet was contacted and returned from the airport.
She assured him everything was going to be okay, as Sam and Amelia were the best people to take care of him.
Despite Sam still not having changes his mind about having a baby, Addison decided to go ahead anyway and made an appointment with the best fertility specialist she could find in the city.
She then wanted to quit, but Jake had no problem leaving their flirtation in the past. He promised her he'd give her a baby.
Soon after, Jake turned out to be applying for Naomi's job at the practice. Addison, being in charge, was hesitant to hire him.
Meanwhile, she informed Sam she was going off birth control, so she had him buy condoms. After Jake assured her he had no ulterior motive and promised not to flirt, Addison had to face that he was the best candidate and officially hired him.
Addison told her therapist that she didn't need to tell Sam about her Fiji history with Jake, as they were broken up at the time, and admitted that she finally happy again.
Addison started looking for IVF specialists to start the process. Needing someone to talk to, she grew closer to Violet, who also needed someone to talk to about her marriage problems.
Sam later realized he needed to be there for his girlfriend and offered to listen to her talk about IVF specialists, but she told him she was fine.
In therapy, she said she became a better and more generous person because of Sam. However, Addison soon realized she must be crazy to compartmentalize Sam and the baby, starting to fear Sam was going to leave her.
She took her concerns to Jake after he told her some more about himself and his youth to make her trust him, but all Jake could tell her was to listen to her instincts.
At night, she told Sam what she was worried about. He knew she was, but kissed her to tell her he wouldn't leave.
However, in therapy, Addison still said she came to realize that maybe love means wanting the other person to be happy, even if they can't be with you.
Addison started the IVF process with fertility drugs and asked Jake to inject them as she wanted to stay sexy for Sam, so he couldn't do it for her.
Addison tried to keep it secret in order not to become the office gossip, but that became difficult when she soon started suffering from mood swings and extreme emotional reactions to what was happening at the practice.
Addison started thinking Sam was just dating her because she couldn't have children, but Jake assured her that was just the hormones.
He did tell her she needed people on her side, as she couldn't go through it alone. He once again stated he didn't want a new child because the experience of having a child is as awful at times as it is wonderful, so he was glad to have gotten through it with Maya.
He assured Addison that didn't mean he stopped loving her, though. In therapy, Addison said she had to teach herself to have hope again.
Soon after, Addison started looking for sperm donors, throwing out lots of candidates based on medical history alone.
When she felt like she was drowning in files, Sam assured her she could make it happen. Addison asked her colleagues for help, but they all give her different advice.
Addison received good news from Jake: they were able to retrieve 4 eggs, which needed to be picked that day. He'd contact a friend at the sperm bank to speed up the process, meaning they could fertilize the eggs that day.
Sam came to support Addison when Jake would pick the eggs, but she was already under. She woke up with Sam by her side and started crying because she put herself in this position where a stranger was needed to get pregnant, all because she cheated.
Sam convinced her the bad things didn't outweigh her good qualities, so she shouldn't punish herself. He advised her to pick the musician's sperm.
She did pick him, and later that day, Jake fertilized the eggs with Addison watching. Over the three days the embryo had to grow in the lab, Addison kept checking on it.
She wasn't allowed to have sex before the implantation, but Sam suggested they do "other things". She happily agreed to that. The day after, Jake implanted the eggs.
In therapy, Addison said she was thrilled and terrified that if all things went right, there could be an entire person with a full life ahead could be growing inside her.
She was looking forward to sharing experiences with her child. Amelia went missing for 12 days, and when she showed up at the practice to announce her engagement to Ryan, Addison was both angry and relieved at the same time.
Since Charlotte was convinced Amelia was using, they staged an intervention at the practice. Amelia started attacking them one by one and hit Addison's weak spot when she attacked her about her infertility and past abortion.
Addison threatened to report Amelia to the medical board, throw her out of her house and change the locks, and call in her family, but the only thing that actually got Amelia to stay and listen was the oxy she demanded.
The doctors gave her the oxy, which Amelia snorted off the reception desk. Right when Amelia seemed to cave to her friends' talks and agreed to go to rehab, Ryan arrived.
Amelia aggressively forbade her from telling that story and soon left with Ryan, leaving Addison to feel like the intervention was a bad idea.
However, the next morning, Addison received a call about Amelia, who was ready to go rehab. Addison helped her pack and drove her to the treatment center.
Amelia, who has a great mother, had Addison think that even the best mothers' kids can go down the wrong path. Later that day, Addison received the news that she was not pregnant, but Jake assured her that didn't mean it was over.
Sam seemed relieved about the news, so Violet agreed to hold her hand the next time she was going to try. Addison came up with a crazy plan that included a lot of fertility drugs.
She wanted to try again with fresh sperm and fresh eggs, even though she had two frozen eggs left herself.
Addison took Sam to therapy with her as he needed to face there would be a baby in her life soon, but he said that was not a problem yet and that he wanted Addison.
Two weeks later, Addison collapsed at the practice as a side-effect to the hormone treatment. That made her decide that the embryo transfer would be it: she'd either be pregnant or not.
After she was fully recovered, they did the transfer. On Thanksgiving, Addison did a pregnancy test. Mere hours after delivering a baby at St.
Ambrose Hospital , Addison got a call from her social worker saying that a birth mom had chosen her. She returned to the hospital, shocked to find that it was Judi , the same woman whose baby she had delivered.
Judi had decided she couldn't find a better mom for the baby, and that it must have been fate since Addison was the one who delivered the baby boy.
Addison named him Henry Montgomery. Addison is a very confident, smart, and poised woman. She can be described as cold and unforgiving, however, she is also quite warm and kind.
She is also very concentrated and dedicated to her work, as she is considered the best in her field. Addison is sometimes difficult and uncompromising but she can be very kind and accepting.
Addison describes herself as a worrier; she constantly worries about what's happening and what's not happening.
Professionally, she is very confident, but not personally. She likes to think that worrying prepares her for whatever may happen.
Addison met her future husband, Derek Shepherd , in medical school in the summer. Their relationship grew and they eventually married.
Derek once wrote a song for her. After medical school, Addison and Derek became extremely successful in their respective fields and each began their own practice in New York.
However, this strained their marriage. Addison was married to Derek Shepherd for eleven years before eventually sleeping with Derek's best friend, Mark Sloan , which prompted Derek to leave New York for Seattle at the request of their old friend and mentor, Richard Webber.
After she and Derek initially separated, she tried to get over him, even hoping that dying her hair blond would help. She remained in New York and lived with Mark for two months, during which she became pregnant with Mark's child but she chose to have an abortion.
The relationship ended when Mark cheated on Addison and Richard Webber brought her to Seattle Grace for a consult on a difficult case.
Addison was unaware that Derek still had feelings for Meredith. Rhimes also serves as executive producer alongside Betsy Beers , Mark Gordon , Mark Tinker and Marti Noxon ; the latter serving as showrunner for the first season only in lieu of Rhimes' duties on Grey's Anatomy.

The first season deals with Addison's move from Seattle to Los Angeles and her attempts to adjust to a very different type of working environment at Oceanside Wellness Group, a co-op private practice.
The first season also deals with her budding relationships with her new co-workers. Among them include her best friend Naomi Bennett, a fertility specialist, and Naomi's ex-husband Sam Bennett, who specializes in internal medicine.
Also working within the practice is psychiatrist Violet Turner, pediatrician Cooper Freedman, alternative medicine specialist Pete Wilder, and receptionist Dell Parker.
It is revealed early on that the Bennetts established the practice with the rest of the doctors owning a share of it as well.
Charlotte King, who serves as chief of staff at St. Ambrose Hospital, works with Oceanside Wellness through her dealings with Sam and her sexual relationship with Cooper.
The second season dealt with the practice's financial troubles. Naomi reveals to Addison that they are in danger of losing the practice due to unpaid debt causing Addison to tell Sam.
This in turn causes a shift within the practice making Addison the new boss. Adding to the drama was the competition of a new practice, Pacific Wellcare.
This new practice, located within the same building as Oceanside Wellness, was run by Charlotte causing turmoil for her and Cooper.
Another happening within this season is the dynamic between Sam and Naomi who by the finale realize they can no longer be friends as well as the deepening romantic relationship of Cooper and Charlotte.
Addison was romantically linked with Kevin Nelson played by David Sutcliffe , a police officer, but later realized their relationship was going nowhere.
Towards the end of the season, Addison falls in love with cardiovascular surgeon Noah Barnes, who as it turns out, is married and is expecting his first child.
Matters become more complicated when Addison realizes that Noah's wife is one of her patients. Archer Montgomery Grant Show , Addison's playboy brother, also made sporadic appearances causing trouble for her and Naomi.
Archer was found to be with an aggressive brain tumor which was later diagnosed as parasites. Addison sought the professional help of her ex-husband, neurosurgeon Derek Shepherd Patrick Dempsey.
After Derek successfully saved Archer, Addison discovered Archer was back to his old tricks cheating on Naomi.
Violet stirred some of her own drama when she began dating Sheldon Brian Benben , who works for Pacific Wellcare, and Pete.
During the latter half of the season, Violet was found to be pregnant although she did not know who the father of her baby was.
Furthermore, Violet found herself and her unborn baby at the mercy of a psychotic patient bent on taking Violet's baby by any means necessary in the closing moments of the season finale.
Meanwhile, Dell struggled with his own issues caused by his former girlfriend's drug habits and the fight for custody of his daughter Betsey.
Some of the medical cases that caused a stir and tension among the doctors at Private Practice was the issue of abortion a first for the practice , the sex reassignment of a newborn, the sexual activity of a year-old, the switching of embryos for two mothers-to-be and a young couple who later discovered they were siblings.
In the third season , Violet survives the cliffhanger in season two while she gives her baby Lucas to Pete while she recovers from the ordeal.
Addison and Sam get even closer but decide not to become a couple because they don't want to hurt Naomi, Charlotte and Cooper break up, and Dell loses Heather in an explosion which nearly kills Betsey also.
Addison and Pete become a couple, which causes Addison to get close to Lucas until Violet wants him back even going as far as taking Pete to court to get joint custody.
Sheldon starts to fall for Charlotte after they start to sleep together and Sam and Naomi's daughter, Maya, gets pregnant and marries the father of her baby, Dink.
And Derek Shepherd's sister, Dr. Amelia Shepherd, arrives in town. In the season finale, Addison and Sam finally get together while Charlotte and Cooper get engaged much to Sheldon's dismay.
Pete and Violet work over their issues, while Dell and Maya get involved in a car accident and the severity of Dell's condition is overlooked while Maya was being attended to in the operating room.
Amelia Shepherd, younger sister of Derek Shepherd Addison's ex-husband , operated on him but was unable to resuscitate following Dell's heart failure.
Maya survived her operation to save her spinal cord and prevent paralysis while at the same time she gives birth to a girl, who also survives the ordeal.
In the fourth season Brian Benben and Caterina Scorsone were upgraded to series regulars. The season begins with the aftermath of Dell's death, including his funeral and what happens to his daughter Betsey.
Violet and Pete get married in the season premiere and finally begin a new life with their son Lucas. Addison and Sam reveal their romance to the staff of Oceanside Wellness, which causes Naomi to leave town to learn to accept their new relationship.
Cooper and Charlotte's relationship continues to get stronger as they get engaged. Charlotte is raped and badly beaten by one of the patients at her hospital and decides to only tell Addison and make her keep it a secret.
Charlotte later decides she does not want to tell anyone she was raped, not even Cooper. Later everyone finds out but Charlotte won't identify Lee McHenry, her rapist.
Later we find out Violet was raped while she was in college. Charlotte finally decides to identify Lee because Sheldon tells her to do so.
She goes to the police station, but since she did not accuse him and because of the long history of Charlotte not telling, the lawyer does not accept to charge Lee, who is later stabbed by his girl friend in self-defense.
She tells the authorities about almost getting killed, which finally leads to Lee's arrest, but before this, he is saved at the surgeon's slab with Charlotte granting the procedure in spite of her being victimized by him.
In the season finale it was decided that they will close down Oceanside Wellness and open another practice; and Naomi decides it would be best to move to New York to be with Gabriel.
Following the departure of Audra McDonald , Benjamin Bratt was added to the series as a regular cast member. He plays Jake Reilly, a fertility specialist "who is quite accomplished and up to speed with cutting-edge technology and procedures.
After rehab, Amelia finds out that she is pregnant by Ryan, a boyfriend who got her back into drugs and later died of an overdose.
She finds out that the baby does not have a brain, but ultimately decides to take the baby to full term and donate the organs to save other children's lives.
Later in the season, Cooper was revealed to have had an 8-year-old son from a previous one night stand.
The son, who is named Mason, is portrayed by child actor Griffin Gluck. While Gluck initially served as a guest star, he was promoted to series regular later in the season.
Gluck is notable for being the first child to be a series regular in Private Practice , or in the original series Grey's Anatomy.
Mason's mother sought out Cooper after discovering that she was stricken with cancer, and she dies later in the season. Season 5 also deals with Addison not being able to have her own children, only to be able to adopt a child, Henry, just as Amelia's tragic news is given.
Charlotte finds outs that she's pregnant but is happy because her IUD will most likely destroy the pregnancy, only to find out she's pregnant with triplets.
After a difficult pregnancy and even delivering one of the triplets at 26 weeks, Charlotte and Cooper eventually have three healthy daughters.
The final episode of the series brings many happy endings: Addison and Jake marry; Sheldon quits the practice to spend time with his love who's dying of cancer; Sam and Naomi remarry and will be having a second baby; Amelia has found the love of her life; Violet finally gets over her issues with Pete's death and announces she's started writing another book.

Throughout the series' run, Private Practice had a handful of crossovers with its sister show, Grey's Anatomy. Note : This episode took place while Private Practice was on an extended hiatus due to the — Writers Guild of America strike.
At first Derek says it's inoperable until Sam Bennett Taye Diggs later comes to Seattle and gives medical advice on how to remove the parasites.
