Announcement icon During the corona virus crisis I am "seeing" patients regularly but via internet. This has worked well, and is intimate and effective.

About

I provide comprehensive humanistic psychotherapy and psychopharmacology. I have a lot of experience and clinical know-how across many psychotherapeutic approaches. I am empathic and thoughtful and approachable. I am a Professor of Clinical Psychiatry at Boston University, and a Lecturer at Tufts . I am a sought after supervisor for resident psychiatrists and colleagues. I work with all age groups except young children. My web site (ArnoldRobbinsMD.com.} I am comprehensive in my evaluations and treatment recommendations. I am responsive to each patient's needs. I use cinema to illustrate important emotions.
I am skilled at short term therapy for symptom resolution, long term therapy for change and personal achievement. I believe empathy to be the most important factor in successful therapy. I have experience in psychodynamic, relational and self psychological psychotherapies, and attune my therapy to the individual, never the diagnosis.
The depth and breadth of my experience I think is unique. Treatment only begins after a very careful individual assessment and is based on the patients needs, not the therapists. Treatment options are carefully discussed with the patient at each step of the therapy. Sometimes movies/plays and art are used to help illumnate emotional issues/memories.

“Video therapy is real therapy, and can bring empathy and understanding and healing. Evaluation for medications, if needed, is possible too.”
