Care Philosophy

I have over twenty years of experience treating children, adolescents and adults. I place a premium on thorough and comprehensive initial evaluation to ensure adequacy of the diagnostic assessment and, therefore, the appropriateness and indication for treatment recommendations. I am deliberate in my effort to engage the patient in the process in ways that facilitate their subjective agenda and concerns while also taking the time to derive the necessary historical information to make an accurate diagnostic formulation. I support parents and school districts in appreciating the educational needs of the child or teen in school. I do not discriminate based on the presenting diagnostic issues and do not avoid cases that may be marked by a high degree of complexity or acuity or cases marked by dissonance or conflict. I provide diagnostic assessment, medication evaluation and management as well as individual therapy for adults, children and adolescents and conjoint parent consultation.Read more

Burlington, MA |
She misdiagnosed my son, contradicted all his previous testing, then started him on antipsychotic medication. She never checked his blood levels to see if these medications were causing him harm. She felt only her opinion was valid and never truly listened to the input from the school counselors. She was condescending toward our pediatrician and i would not recommend her.
I am sorry you were so frustrated. I Would have welcomed any dialogue regarding these issues. Very few medications require or even use blood levels for monitoring including antipsychotics. I do wish you and your family all the best.

The office strives for a collaborative relationship with clients around their accounts and outstanding balances. We pride ourselves on helping with insurance billing and developing fair payment plans. However, as with any business, their are occasions when despite our best efforts, people find themselves dissatisfied with the out-of-pocket costs they incur. In fairness to the many patients who are conscientious and dutiful in working with us on their billing and given our willingness to work concertedly with parties to take into consideration financial hardship, we are not permissive of parties who neglect their financial commitment and refuse to work with us to come to amicable resolution. Of course, some patients, therefore, use online forums like this as a mechanism to retaliate and displace blame in the face of their own neglect. For that, we are saddened given our dedication to both our clinical and our administrative working relationships with patients and their families.
