While I am not taking patients at the moment, I do keep a waiting list. I practice a personal kind of psychiatry that is disappearing in the era of highly managed psychiatric care and the fifteen minute medication visit. Even managing medication for a patient seeing another therapist, my follow-up visits are all 25-45 minutes, and I remain interested in the big picture of each patient as an individual human being who I am helping to get better and move ahead in his or her life. I have to remain in touch with what is going on in the lives of my patients, rather than merely tallying up symptoms and writing prescriptions.

Hi! I am a medication and/or therapy provider. I use a very client-centered approach in therapy and utilize CBT and narrative therapy frequently. I have a strong belief that the mind and body are highly integrated and that physical and mental treatment are inseparable. For this reason, clients have the option of participating in a new model of treatment. This would include exercising during therapy sessions - brisk or slow walking on treadmills or Stairmaster at the client's comfort level. Of course, regular counseling therapy and/or medication prescriptions are provided for those not interested in combining exercise.

I use holistic psychiatry to help patient's recover from illness and rebuild health and find meaning. Prior to training at Harvard Medical School, I spent 7 years studying meditation, yoga, and Eastern Medicine. While I treat symptoms of depression, anxiety, and addiction issues, my background in Eastern medicine allows me to focus on a person, instead of a diagnosis. I focus on symptoms initially, while simultaneously rebuilding health through meditation and Eastern medical principles. Over time, my patients' symptoms reduce, and we shift focus to finding meaning and fulfillment in life.

You need help, but are unsure where to turn. Wary of doctors, suspicious of drugs to which you think you could get "addicted," unbelieving that anyone could know you well enough to help. You may already be taking medicine, but aren't convinced it is the best one for you, or even helping at all. As a clinical psychologist and family physician trained in psychopharmacology, I apply an unusual and broad background to help identify and clarify what is "stuck" for you right now.

It's hard to see a psychiatrist! I see people in distress due to a crisis,a loss, a trauma or a major life change. This distress manifests as depression,mood swings,anxiety, racing thoughts,paranoia,insomnia etc.People are complicated. I do a comprehensive evaluation listening for various psychological, emotional and biologic "clues". This is an interactive and iterative process. "Our" formulation guides the treatment. I practice both psychotherapy and psychopharmacology. I often consult for colleagues in psychology and social work regarding the use of medications.I then manage the medications as part of the treatment team.
