If you need help to gain or regain a good enough balance and a way to find happiness in your life, I have decades of valuable experience. I am known as a "psychiatrist's psychiatrist," a true healer, and one who is gifted at working with "challenging situations" -- both individual and couples. Therapy is my specialty, and I do evaluate and prescribe medication for my patients if it is truly indicated. Author of : "That's How the Light Gets In: Memoir of a Psychiatrist" (published by Random House) and "Semrad: The Heart of a Therapist".
I was trained and have taught at Harvard Psychiatric residency programs and have 35 years of independent private practice. I enjoy working with anyone who truly wants to grow and heal. I will consult for a second opinion if your therapy is stuck. I will consider a sliding scale.
If you want to know and own your thoughts and feelings, with whatever help you may need to bear them, I will see it through with you.
