About

Dr. Toppelberg is an experienced, Harvard-trained child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist, usually working with ages 3-30. He evaluates and treats emotional/ behavioral difficulties including ADHD, depression, trauma, stress, anxiety, and selective mutism, and those preventing weight loss. He has focused on issues of performance at work, study and competitive sports. He regularly works with tour-level tennis players and other professional and student athletes. He is an expert in neurodevelopmental disabilities, as well as learning and language disabilities. He runs psychiatric services at an excellent school for children/adolescents with autism and other neurodevelopmental disabilities, the prestigious New England Center for Children.
Dr. Toppelberg teaches and conducts research at the renowned Judge Baker Children's Center and Harvard Medical School (see photo gallery and website). He formerly directed psychiatric services at Judge Baker's Manville School. His broad experience as a physician and psychopharmacologist has taught him a cautious science-based approach to medications, minimizing adverse effects.
In his child and adolescent work, he collaborates with and deeply values the views of parents and others involved. In his work with adults, his approach is collaborative and deeply respectful of individual preferences. ***NOTE: Insurances NOT accepted; only private pay.
