I am a psychiatrist trained in psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. My practice has been directed at individuals who have difficulty finding satisfaction in both their work and love lives despite having achieved considerable success in their professions. I have been seeing individuals and couples for over 30 years and I am experienced with providing combined therapy, including medication and psychotherapy. I work with patients from 1x/week to 4x/week depending on the patient's need for more or less intensive therapy. While the past as a determinant of the present is acknowledged the work is done in the here and now.

I am a Board Certified, Harvard Medical School affiliated, Adult Psychiatrist in private practice in Cambridge . I have had a subspecialty interest in treating OCD since the late 1980's. In addition to treating patients with OCD and related disorders, a large part of my practice is helping people who have depression, and anxiety problems such as panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, and generalized anxiety disorder. Most of my practice involves psychotherapy with empirically tested psychotherapies such as CBT and ACT, and medication management. Many like the idea of seeing one person for therapy and medication instead of two.

Good mental health, well-being and a sense we are living the life we want are things many of us strive for but may find it difficult to attain. When it comes to achieving these goals, anxiety, depression, and other psychological woes can often prevent that from happening. These other woes may include a poor sense of what you want, who you are, what you are feeling and thinking, or self-defeating behaviors that you can’t seem to prevent or control. In my practice, we will strive together to overcome these obstacles so we can clear a path to help you discover and better understand the feelings and thoughts that are individually yours.

Leading a fulfilling and happy life can be challenging and may even seem impossible at times. I believe that communicating and connecting via talk therapy is one path towards a happier and more meaningful life. My view is that therapy provides an opportunity to gain insight into one's relationships with one's self, others and society. I use a variety of approaches in my therapeutic work according to what works for each individual person. Together we'll focus on trying to understand the root causes of various problems and repetitive patterns of behavior that are difficult to change.

My approach focuses on helping my patients to thrive on challenge. When we view challenges as opportunities, we experience adrenaline as excitement, and we grow; when we view challenges as threats, we experience adrenaline as anxiety. This means that anxiety is simply growth waiting to happen. I show my patients how to overcome worry and distractions by welcoming adrenaline and using it to work at their best.

It's hard to see a psychiatrist! I see people in distress due to a crisis,a loss, a trauma or a major life change. This distress manifests as depression,mood swings,anxiety, racing thoughts,paranoia,insomnia etc.People are complicated. I do a comprehensive evaluation listening for various psychological, emotional and biologic "clues". This is an interactive and iterative process. "Our" formulation guides the treatment. I practice both psychotherapy and psychopharmacology. I often consult for colleagues in psychology and social work regarding the use of medications.I then manage the medications as part of the treatment team.

I work with you to clarify and understand these issues and their origins, to help you effect positive change. I believe that the self-understanding that catalyzes such change is best reached by cultivating a psychotherapeutic relationship in which compassionate, honest and constructive communication can occur.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

A Psychiatrist in Cambridge is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

Cambridge Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication as well as practice psychotherapy in treatment. Sometimes, Psychiatrists form part of a clinical team in which they will diagnose and prescribe, while psychologists or therapists provide the client's psychotherapy.

As part of a clinical assessment, Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, take blood tests, and order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans, and MRIs.

The field of psychiatry in Cambridge 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 Cambridge, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have an MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years of training to become certified. Psychiatric nurse practitioners are able to assess and diagnose mental health conditions and prescribe medication. Cambridge Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.

If you're finding it difficult to find the right psychiatrist in Cambridge, don't worry--you're not alone. Psychiatrists are highly specialized professionals.
