I like to get to know my patients inside-out from a personal, social, biological, and psychological level. Not only does this foster an excellent therapeutic relationship, but results in better treatment. This skill was instrumental in publishing a New York Times cover story titled, "Diagnosing the Wrong Deficit." in 2013. I have thousands of hours of experience working with patients with depression, adult ADHD, addictions, and sleep disorders. Everyone I see gets a comprehensive evaluation, including bloodwork and sometimes pharmacogenomic testing, as well as personalized recommendations, whether they be for therapy, supplements, medications, other specialists, or lifestyle interventions.

I have been working as a psychiatrist for over thirty years growing my skills in psychotherapy, psychoanalysis and in medication treatments for adults and adolescents (over age 12). Many psychiatrists only prescribe medications. I can provide both the psychotherapy, and when indicated, I prescribe medications. I use my training as a physician and a psychotherapist to reduce symptoms and promote resolution of emotional distress. A unique area of my practice developed from my experience as the CEO of a Boston Hosp followed by 10 years consulting to executives from major corporations regarding career stress and leadership skills.

Whether practicing insight-oriented psychotherapy or psychoanalysis, I listen to the way a person tries to solve his or her problems and help them to come to a new understanding based on greater tolerance for what they feel. My medical background helps me to be aware of the complicated interplay between what is physical and what is psychological. I help my patients sort out what we can treat with psychotherapy and when medications may make a difference.
