I am a board-certified adult psychiatrist, whose primary interest is in psychotherapy. I typically see people for weekly psychotherapy sessions. If appropriate, I can also prescribe psychiatric medications, though my primary approach to addressing issues is therapy. I usually utilize a psychodynamic, or insight-oriented, approach to try to help people figure out how possible unconscious factors from past experiences might be contributing to current life troubles or maladaptive patterns. I have participated in the Advanced Training Program in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy at the Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute.

Do you find yourself not living the life you truly want? Are you spinning your wheels? Is your middle name "Self-Sabotage"? Do you have challenges in personal or professional relationships? Do you have problems from your past that you'd really rather not think about but that don't seem to go away?

I offer a safe, engaging space in which you can explore anything on your mind. I bring to the table ceaseless curiosity, warmth, and a sprinkling of humor. If you think you might be interested in seeing me, please reach out to me by phone or email. I would be happy to set up a time to talk to see if my practice might be a good fit for you.
