Currently, part of my practice has shifted to assisting young adults entering into and navigating their college experience during this time.
I am a board certified child and adolescent Clinical Nurse Specialist providing diagnostic psychiatric evaluations, psychotherapy, psychopharmacological interventions, psycho-education, family therapy and couples work. I seek to help individuals understand and cope with their current emotions, stressors and life changes through what is known as the therapist/client connection. This is often over looked. It is a powerful and necessary component to a clients' progress. Now, more than ever I work hard to provide a relatable environment for my clients to feel comfortable, heard and empowered to make changes in their lives.

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.

I treat children, adolescents, and adults with a variety of disorders including anxiety, mood disorders, psychotic disorders and developmental disorders.
My motto is "Promoting Self-Regulation, and Bio-Emotional Health". I am a psychiatrist and a psychotherapist. I provide psychotherapy and pharmacological treatment for those who need it. I believe medications are not the answer to people emotional, psychological, and behavioral problems. My patients are individuals who want to improve the quality of their life and find their way to a satisfying and fulfilling future. My treatment approach is focused on the strengths of each individual and on helping people to obtain more insight and discover their true self.

The field of psychiatry in Westport 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 Westport, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have an MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years of training to become certified.
