I love being a physician and a psychiatrist. My training at Massachusetts General Hospital began with a rigorous grounding in general medicine followed by a three year residency in psychiatry. I integrate a biological and psychodynamic perspective in my work. In addition, I promote some of the principles and techniques from Eastern medicine and philosophy.
I know that effective treatment begins with the clinical encounter. The relationship is the most important aspect of psychotherapy. A working alliance is a critical aspect of the relationship. You must feel that our relationship is authentic. In other words, you must feel that I get it.
