My ideal client is anyone in need of assistance with their mental health needs. I have over 35 years of experience in the practice and teaching of cognitive-behavioral therapy, which is a short-term psychotherapy that deals with a broad range of problems. Through CBT, patients learn strategies to deal with their problems and over time become their own therapists . This increases self-reliance and lessens the amount of time that patients actually need psychotherapy. Patients want help, but they also want to know that there can be an ending point to their therapy. I have proven success in these using these methods.

My approach is to synthesize a medical-model to the evaluation and treatment of your symptoms with a commitment to psychodynamic therapy. Diagnostic labels can be useful if you may need medications; but,even more important is our work together to understand the context of your current difficulties. What are the triggers for your symptoms; what are the meanings you give to feelings; and, how do your relationships, past and present, effect your coping style? My aim is to facilitate your growth towards ever greater authenticity, and to empower you to make healthier choices and maintain a more positive outlook.

As a Harvard-trained board-certified child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrist, I believe that excellent psychiatric care is centered on the whole person, not just on a diagnosis or a specific medication. With all that life demands, most people oftentimes struggle with complicated and conflicting feelings. The decision to seek help for your mental health is a big one and the path that leads to meaningful, positive change is not always an easy one. I hope to make this path as comfortable as possible by providing you with an understanding, warm environment that fosters positive change.

DR. LOCKE IS CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS. The patients who benefit the most from working with me are usually struggling with feelings of depression and anxiety, often associated with problems such as insomnia or recurrent physical symptoms due to stress. They want to understand what is happening to them and which treatment options might help them. Getting balanced information about the risks and benefits of treatment is usually a priority. Often my patients are trying to decide whether to use medication to control their symptoms, or psychotherapy, or both.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

Wellesley 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 Wellesley 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 Wellesley, 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. Wellesley Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.

If they are limited in number, expand out your search geographically (Broaden your Search) and see who's available further afield.

If you're still finding it difficult to find a psychiatrist in Wellesley, call or contact the professionals here and ask for a psychiatric referral. You can also call the psychiatric nurses in Wellesley as they tend to be affiliated to a network of psychiatrists in their area ( Wellesley). Or just chat to them to see if they can help.
