Are those obsessions and rituals getting the better of you? Have you been struggling with skin picking or hair pulling and just don’t know where to turn? Do you experience distressing appearance concerns? You may be one of the many with OCD or a related disorder struggling to find a specialist or languishing on a long waitlist. I have been specializing in this area for over a decade and can provide you tailored medication recommendations so you can finally gain the control you seek. While I won’t be prescribing your medications, you can bring my recs back to your primary care doc or psychiatric prescriber for implementation.

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.
