About

I am a Harvard trained, board certified, Psychiatrist with a private practice in the Back Bay Area, Boston.
I offer individualized care in a compassionate, intelligent, creative environment. My style is kind and interactive with a focus on practical insight and support. Most of my patients benefit from a combination of medication management and insight-oriented psychodynamic psychotherapy as well as cognitive behavioral therapy.
