About

I believe a comprehensive assessment, a working alliance with clients and families, and collaboration with all treatment providers should be the foundation of any treatment. I am a dual board certified adult and child-adolescent psychiatrist with extensive experience in treating patients with complex emotional and behavioral challenges. I am well adept at addressing issues ranging from depression, to ADHD, to behavioral issues, to struggles with addiction. I believe in balancing multiple psychotherapeutic modalities with psychopharmacology.
I received a dual B.S. with honors from Rutgers University studying Psychology and Neuroscience. I completed residency in General Psychiatry and fellowship in Child/Adolescent Psychiatry from the University of Massachusetts. There I gained extensive training in solution focused therapy, motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy.
I specialize in treating teens & adults struggling with high risk self-harm behaviors & chronic suicidality, focused on improving the management of emotions & decreasing impulsive, destructive behaviors. In dealing with families, children and adolescents, monitoring and initiating medication trials is a whole family decision, & one not taken lightly. www.rajanfamilywellness.com
