Announcement icon A fair number of out-of-state clients have contacted me for help. It is my pleasure to assist you via telehealth.
I am a Johns-Hopkins-trained, award-winning Harvard psychiatrist, triple board-certified in Addiction Medicine and Adult & Child Psychiatry, affiliated with McLean and MassGeneral for Children at NSMC. Do you feel no one understands your unspeakable sorrow, helplessness, insecurity, or regret? You don't have to endure alone. I have helped a diverse group: abuse survivors, addiction recoverees, children with anxiety, elders with dementia, missionaries, LGBTQ individuals, physicians, administrators, etc. Advocating for using fewer medications (eg. antipsychotics) whenever possible, I collaborate with my psychology & alternative therapy colleagues to explore other options, eg. dietary & music therapy for patients with autism.
Being a faculty member at Harvard and Tufts Medical Schools, my research area includes pathological gambling, substance addiction, autism, and the effect of housing on mental health. My scope of practice includes assessment & treatment, second opinion, Suboxone prescription, disability / fitness-for-duty evaluation, and expert witnessing.
To accommodate my out-of-state / international clients and busy professionals, I offer weekend / evening appointments, flexible locations / home visits. I do not take insurance, but will issue you a receipt for any applicable insurance reimbursement.
