Psychotherapy is a safe place where we can explore how the past continues to effect the present. It is an encounter with another person which can be painful at times but also lively and genial. As a psychiatrist trained at Tufts Medical Center and an analytic candidate at the Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute I employ an approach that integrates psychoanalytic , cognitive, and mindfulness-based techniques with psychopharmacologic management. The human experience is complex and I engage my patients in a flexible manner that respects the gravity of our work.

I work best with adults who are motivated to understand themselves better through depth psychotherapy. While this motivation often stems from life transition, illness, relationship difficulties, or loss, there are times when we simply feel the urge to go deeper and explore our own minds.

You need help, but are unsure where to turn. Wary of doctors, suspicious of drugs to which you think you could get "addicted," unbelieving that anyone could know you well enough to help. You may already be taking medicine, but aren't convinced it is the best one for you, or even helping at all. As a clinical psychologist and family physician trained in psychopharmacology, I apply an unusual and broad background to help identify and clarify what is "stuck" for you right now. Discovering ways to feel free of anxiety, depression, anger or hate is our business together.

I work in a variety of ways in talk therapy to help you get what you want out of therapy. Most often that involves getting relief from painful emotional symptoms, improving personal relationships, becoming more productive in work, and being freed to take more pleasure from life. Therapy can also help you to gain greater control over your life, or change lifelong ways of coping that just aren't working as well as you'd like.

Have you tried everything except medications to help yourself, but still feel rudderless navigating this journey we call life? Reached a crossroads, expected or not, that you realized you were not prepared for, or needed help with, without any clear guidance on how to process your emotions, and/or difficulty maintaining your composure, or contrarily, found yourself with consistent difficulties controlling your impulses? Someone I could help might recognize such issues in themselves, not know where to turn, but above all else, be willing to engage, participate, and work towards becoming the best version of themselves possible!

During my evaluation and ongoing work, I consider various factors such as, genetic predisposition, biological, psychological and social processes to understand the person fully. Academic affiliation with Boston University helps me stay abreast with not only the recent developments in the field of psychiatry but also with the cultural and evidence based treatments.

Thriving in an evermore complex world can be overwhelming; mental health is key and self-actualization is a journey best undertaken with good support. Hello! I am a Harvard-affiliated psychiatrist and MIT-trained engineer with additional background in Traditional Chinese Medicine and genetics. I believe in the motto "Mind & Hand" and the transformative power of integrative care that aims to incorporate the full biopsychosocial experience of each patient and actualize lasting growth through facilitating insight, addressing root-causes, shifting paradigms, upgrading coping skills, and implementing measurable improvements.

Every patient is different. I focus on improving self esteem, relationships, love life and work life. I do not use only one theory. Treatment draws from all sorts of different theoretical approaches. I prescribe medications when warranted by the clinical situation. Each patient and his or her improvement is very important to me. Achieving a sense of happiness and self worth is critical to a fulfilling life. I work with people from age 15 and up.
