Although successful, you're not as happy as you deserve to be, and you are likely pretty good at hiding your internal distress. You may be dissatisfied with the situation at work, or with the quality of your relationships, or both. This gnaws at you, you want to fix it, and you may be skeptical about the “therapy industrial complex.” Before launching into the fix, you need to clearly understand the problem, and how different approaches may or may not address it. You like the idea of starting with an evaluation by a seasoned expert who gets people like you, and who will tell it like it is with compassion and understanding.

If you need help to gain or regain a good enough balance and a way to find happiness in your life, I have decades of valuable experience. 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. I particularly enjoy working with individuals who are more interested in developing their own capacities than in complaining about the inadequacy of what they find outside themselves in the world and in other people. I do not provide "medication management" if that is a primary reason for consultation. Author of : "That's How the Light Gets In: Memoir of a Psychiatrist" (published by Random House) and "Semrad: The Heart of a Therapist" (see www.susanrako.com) My blog, "More Light" can also be found on my website.

As a Board Certified Psychiatrist I try to help patients struggling with depression, mood shifts, anxiety, stress and relationships, trauma, alcohol use, behavior and attention problems. As a therapist trained in classical and emerging therapies I approach these problems analytically and with greatest compassion, carefully considering one's life experiences, character traits, emotional and behavioral patterns, relational history and attachments. I work together with my patients to uncover aspects and origins of their symptoms, and together we move forward.

I want to help my clients find an ultimate and healthy approach to their mental wellbeing. My choice of treatment plan is consistent with my client's commitment. Psychiatric symptoms such as Anxiety, PTSD, ADHD, Depression, Bipolar disorder, ext. can be triggered and exacerbated by many things such as: endocrine issues, insufficient self-care, lack of exercise, poor diet and more. Armed with an understanding of holistic approach along with Psychiatric Medicine, I diagnose and create medication management plans for each of my patients and help address other issues by consulting with appropriate professionals.

Teletherapy Psychiatrists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Newton, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Newton listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
