As a Board Certified Psychiatrist I try to help patients struggling with depression, mood shifts, anxiety, stress and relationships, trauma, alcohol use, behavior and attention problems. As a therapist trained in classical and emerging therapies I approach these problems analytically and with greatest compassion, carefully considering one's life experiences, character traits, emotional and behavioral patterns, relational history and attachments. I work together with my patients to uncover aspects and origins of their symptoms, and together we move forward.

I help clients resolve psychological or psychiatric problems that keep them from fully experiencing their lives. I also work with people to help them achieve their life goals. Because no two people are the same, treatment for every person should be individually tailored. I do therapy, and use medications when they are needed. Some of the therapies I use are hypnotherapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, couples and family therapy. I help with anxiety, mood problems, habit problems, co-morbid medical and psychiatric problems, relationship and family problems.

Talking things over in a safe and private environment allows you to understand yourself better, and allows me to help you identify self-destructive patterns of behavior.
I work in a variety of ways in talk therapy to help you get what you want out of therapy. Most often that involves getting relief from painful emotional symptoms, improving personal relationships, becoming more productive in work, and being freed to take more pleasure from life. Therapy can also help you to gain greater control over your life, or change lifelong ways of coping that just aren't working as well as you'd like.

The field of mental health is rapidly evolving during these very exciting and unique times we live in. Most prominently, we are getting to know more about the neuroscience of brain networks and the mind-body intimate connections. We are also simultaneously appreciating that psychiatric conditions are not inherently ubiquitous in every culture, nor are they universal in how they manifest. This is why we strive to deliver a state of the art trauma and culturally informed psychiatric service to our patients. We meet people where they are, listen to their narrative, understand their needs and together help formulate a path to healing.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

A Psychiatrist in Boston is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

Boston Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication as well as practice psychotherapy in treatment. Sometimes, Psychiatrists form part of a clinical team in which they will diagnose and prescribe, while psychologists or therapists provide the client's psychotherapy.

As part of a clinical assessment, Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, take blood tests, and order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans, and MRIs.

The field of psychiatry in Boston has many sub-specialties, including pediatric psychiatry. Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists.

Other related sub-specialties include cognition psychiatry, addiction psychiatry, psychosomatic, forensic, reproductive medicine specialties, psychopharmacology , psychiatric genetics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurophysiology.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners in Boston, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have an MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years of training to become certified. Psychiatric nurse practitioners are able to assess and diagnose mental health conditions and prescribe medication. Boston Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
