I believe that a good psychiatrist should work with you to help you learn about yourself and your mental health.

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.

I am a psychiatric nurse practitioner and clinical social worker who believes deeply that psychiatry should equal science plus soul. As a queer & trans person, I also know that it can be hard to find LGBTQIA-affirming care out there. My background informs a passion for helping you overcome shame, differentiate yourself from the environment around you, find and honor your true self, and navigate the middle path through struggle. If you are grappling with addiction, anxiety, depression, trauma, or need LGBTQIA-affirming care, I am invested in helping you thrive, not just survive.

Hello! I am currently accepting new patients as of 1/14/2022. All visits are through telemedicine, so I can see anyone in the state of Massachusetts. My love for what I do in psychiatry, comes from the joy I get in helping others improve their lives. Most of my patients do not know which direction to go when then come to me, and that is ok. Some people come to me looking for second or third opinions about diagnosis or medications, some people are referred by a therapist to start medication. We can openly discuss decisions and options. This is a judgement free zone. There is no way you can TMI me!

Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, PMHNP
Verified
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation ( TMS therapy) is now available at Revive Therapeutic Services in Providence, Rhode Island. This is a valuable non-drug option for managing particularly those who have not responded to multiple antidepressant treatments or talk therapy in the past — as TMS can reduce symptoms of depression or bring depression under control with minimal side effects. When antidepressants fail to provide relief, TMS can help. It's FDA-cleared, non-invasive, non-medication, alternative treatment that uses a pulsed magnetic field (like an MRI) to stimulate a specific area of the brain associated with controlling mood.

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.

Hi! I am a medication and/or therapy provider. I use a very client-centered approach in therapy and utilize CBT and narrative therapy frequently. I have a strong belief that the mind and body are highly integrated and that physical and mental treatment are inseparable. For this reason, clients have the option of participating in a new model of treatment. This would include exercising during therapy sessions - brisk or slow walking on treadmills or Stairmaster at the client's comfort level. Of course, regular counseling therapy and/or medication prescriptions are provided for those not interested in combining exercise.

I believe therapy offers the opportunity to become who you really are. People are often unaware of all of the factors that are keeping them stuck, creating dissatisfaction, or causing distressing symptoms. By developing a deeper understanding of yourself and your relationships through therapy, it becomes possible to experience your life more authentically, feel better in your relationships, and move toward what is enriching or important to you. I provide a reliable and empathic setting where we can carefully understand the difficulties you are experiencing – leading to relief, personal growth and lasting change.
