How do we learn to understand and trust what our feelings are saying to us? What makes it possible to change entrenched ways of coping that are not working? My focus in therapy is to help patients deepen their personal relationships and find their work more rewarding; medication can sometimes help alleviate symptoms that interfere with achieving these goals. By providing a safe and supportive environment for the patient's search for self-understanding, and listening closely to what is being said and not said, I collaborate with the patient in finding creative and pragmatic ways to overcome obstacles to change.
As a Massachusetts General Hospital trained Child, Adolescent and Adult Psychiatrist with more than twenty years experience, I combine psychotherapy and medication as needed, to treat a broad range of psychiatric disorders. I specialize in the treatment of ADHD, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder and other anxiety disorders across the life span.
I offer weekday and some evening appointments, in a safe, private and convenient setting. Although I am comfortable seeing patients just for psychopharmacology, if they already have a therapist, I prefer to offer patients the combination of psychotherapy and medication management myself, if medications are needed.
