Summary

  • For over 30 years I have practiced psychodynamic psychotherapy for the empathic, informed treatment of patients suffering anxiety, depression, trauma, and/or addiction. When the patient and I feel medication is indicated, I prescribe it, but my primary focus is the understanding and treatment of one's inner emotional distress and its impact on one's everyday life. Recently, I have been awarded a grant from NIH and the National Institute on Drug Abuse to conduct a study on an innovative treatment for opioid use disorder.
    My treatment philosophy is articulated in my book, Of Two Minds, which is available on Amazon.com and is supported by my peer-reviewed research papers and review articles, available on Medline/PubMed.
    I am certified in psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, and a member of the American Psychiatric Association. I am a Research Associate at McLean Hospital and a Clinical Assistant Professor in Psychiatry, Part-Time, at the Harvard Medical School.
