"When you find yourself in a difficult situation or one where your usual coping skills just aren't working it takes courage for you to look for a therapist. If you call me and then decide to see me when you enter my office I work to create a safe, non judgemental environment. Effective collaboration with you is key. My patients have described me as compassionate, intelligent and helpful. I am an experienced psychiatrist and use a range of approaches to help people access their own inner resources and overcoming blocks to reaching them. If a medication trials is indicated and agreed upon I believe in “starting low, going slow”."

"I'm a board certified psychiatric nurse practitioner located just outside of Boston.  My practice combines careful psychiatric assessment and formulation of clear case conceptualization to guide thoughtful prescribing.  I regularly consider the mind-body connection and offer holistic treatment. Psychopharmacology can offer much-needed symptomatic relief; but I acknowledge that sometimes simplifying or decreasing medications can prove more helpful than adding something new. As a nurse practitioner I often teach mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, distress tolerance and emotional regulation skills to help reduce suffering."

I am known as a "psychiatrist's psychiatrist," a true healer, and one who is gifted at working with "challenging" situations" -- both individual and couples. Therapy is my specialty, and I evaluate and prescribe medication only for patients I treat in therapy when it is truly indicated.

"In my experience as a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, I have attempted to help people struggling with emotional difficulties, compromised productivity, troubled relationships, and stunted creativity. Sometimes these difficulties yield to medications, advice, or short-term strategies. Sometimes they are the product of conflicts with a long history that result in frustrating repetitions that cost the patient time, pleasure, and fulfillment. Until these conflicts and feelings can be talked about they will show up as action and people will feel stuck and hopeless. Psychotherapy and psychoanalysis can break this logjam and free the individual to choose their own course."
