About

I am a Harvard-trained relational psychiatrist with 27 years' experience with psychopharmacology and insight-oriented psychotherapy. While medication can alleviate symptoms, they cannot resolve psychological pain. Nor can someone be known and understood in a 15 minute appointment. Sustained recovery takes time and occurs within a caring relationship. A psychiatrist must be fully present and authentic for patients to have reason to trust. I believe in empowering clients with education and mindfulness of their emotions, vulnerabilities and needs. Only then can symptom relief, peace of mind and JOY be fully achievable.
I specialize in the treatment of Depression, Bipolar Disorder and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, which impact every aspect of a person's life. All patients receive a thorough independent evaluation (regardless of their history of treatment). I see adults and adolescents over 16. I do NOT renew ADHD medication or controlled substances unless appropriate.
I enjoy working with clients to understand how their individual psychologies are shaped by the world around us. Gender identity, sexual orientation, race, class, ethnicity and culture impact who we are and who we become. Genetics and biology are only a piece of the puzzle. I am especially interested in the transgenerational impact of immigration.
