Years later, I worked at the MGH OCD Clinic for 4 years.
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.

I specialize in the treatment of ADHD, depression, obsessive -compulsive disorder and other anxiety disorders across the life span.
How do we learn to understand and trust what our feelings are saying to us? What makes it possible to change entrenched ways of coping that are not working? My focus in therapy is to help patients deepen their personal relationships and find their work more rewarding; medication can sometimes help alleviate symptoms that interfere with achieving these goals. By providing a safe and supportive environment for the patient's search for self-understanding, and listening closely to what is being said and not said, I collaborate with the patient in finding creative and pragmatic ways to overcome obstacles to change.

I practice psychopharmacology of mood and anxiety disorders, ADHD and OCD .
While I am not taking patients at the moment, I do keep a waiting list. I practice a personal kind of psychiatry that is disappearing in the era of highly managed psychiatric care and the fifteen minute medication visit. Even managing medication for a patient seeing another therapist, my follow-up visits are all 25-45 minutes, and I remain interested in the big picture of each patient as an individual human being who I am helping to get better and move ahead in his or her life. I have to remain in touch with what is going on in the lives of my patients, rather than merely tallying up symptoms and writing prescriptions.

Obsessive-Compulsive (OCD) Psychiatrists
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations (obsessions), or behaviors that make them feel driven to do something (compulsions). It affects children, kids, teens and adults. Often the person carries out the behaviors to get rid of the obsessive thoughts, but this only provides temporary relief. Not performing the obsessive rituals can cause great anxiety. A person's level of OCD can be anywhere from mild to severe, but if severe and left untreated, it can destroy a person's capacity to function at work, at school or even to lead a comfortable existence in the home.

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 Reading has many sub-specialties, including pediatric psychiatry. Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists.
