I am a psychiatrist and psychotherapist practicing in the Boston area. My office is currently located in Belmont, Massachusetts.

Most of what I do is psychotherapy, which makes me somewhat unusual among psychiatrists. I practice a form of therapy called Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP), which aims to bring rapid and effective change by deep exploration of the emotional roots of current problems. ISTDP can be effective for a broad range of problems including depression, anxiety, physical symptoms, relationship issues, problems of self-worth, and other patterns of self-defeating behavior. I have been practicing, teaching, and writing about ISTDP and related models of psychotherapy for the past two decades.

I also prescribe medication for patients who choose to combine medication treatment with psychotherapy.

Therapists who are interested in learing ISTDP should contact me or see visit the website for information about Boston-area events and training opportunities.
