About

Leading a fulfilling and happy life can be challenging and may even seem impossible at times. I believe that communicating and connecting via talk therapy is one path towards a happier and more meaningful life. My view is that therapy provides an opportunity to gain insight into one's relationships with one's self, others and society. I use a variety of approaches in my therapeutic work according to what works for each individual person. Together we'll focus on trying to understand the root causes of various problems and repetitive patterns of behavior that are difficult to change.
I am a board certified child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist. I offer individual therapy, psychiatric assessments, medication management and family consultations. Generally, I only offer medication management for patients whom I see in individual therapy. I am happy to answer any further questions over the phone or email.
In addition to English I speak Arabic. I have a particular interest in working with immigrant families, minority groups and third culture kids. I work, supervise and teach at Cambridge Hospital and I am a faculty member at Harvard Medical School.
