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.

My name is Michael. I am a Psychiatric and Primary Care Nurse Practitioner. I hold a Master’s degree in nursing, bachelor’s of science in nursing, bachelor’s of arts in psychology, a minor in Spanish- but struggled academically in middle school, and had to transfer high schools due to bullying. Becoming a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner has allowed me to integrate my passion for helping others with knowledge of both well known and newer medications. I aim to help my clients identify the right medication plan, unique for each individual, while minimizing side effects. Small adjustments can yield profound benefits.

Sometimes we have a sense of the ways in which we hope to grow with psychotherapy, and sometimes we learn things about ourselves along the way that are unexpected and turn out to be central issues. Psychotherapy has the capacity to help us identify these central issues in a way that liberates and empowers us. In our work together, I will use psychodynamic psychotherapy to explore the issues you are concerned about, as well as who you are, what has shaped you, and what might be holding you back from living your life to the fullest. I have experience working with patients with a broad array of issues and diagnoses.

People seek psychotherapy for a variety of reasons, but they frequently share one thing in common, the desire to relieve pain and to improve satisfaction with their life. This goal can be accomplished in a variety of ways, and a key component to successful treatment is the patient-physician relationship. I provide an empathic and non-judgmental environment that can facilitate the type of exploration and collaboration that can help one to learn more about themselves, to examine the patterns in their life that they wish to change, and to develop the courage to make those changes.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

A Psychiatrist in South Boston is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

South Boston Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication as well as practice psychotherapy in treatment. 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 South Boston has many sub-specialties, including pediatric psychiatry. Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists.

Other related sub-specialties include cognition psychiatry, addiction psychiatry, psychosomatic, forensic, reproductive medicine specialties, psychopharmacology , psychiatric genetics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurophysiology.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners in South Boston, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have an MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years of training to become certified. Psychiatric nurse practitioners are able to assess and diagnose mental health conditions and prescribe medication.
