Accepting patients for telehealth appointments in MA, NY, and CA, in-person appointments in Somerville, MA. I graduated from UMass Medical school and was trained in adult psychiatry at Cambridge Health Alliance, a Harvard Medical School teaching hospital. Prior to going to medical school I received a Masters in Teaching from Boston University and worked as a teacher. This unique background affects my approach to psychiatry. I believe that a good psychiatrist should work with you to help you learn about yourself and your mental health.

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.

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 Somerville, 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 Somerville 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.
