Dr. Olds brings joy to me each time I see her. She provides realistic hope, authentic concern, her vast knowledge of psychiatry and human heart strains. My life has changed over my time working with Dr. Olds. She has a brilliance all her own, which from her Harvard background and now teaching, as well as her wisdom of people, is insightful, understanding, thought-provoking, challenging and inspiring.

Dr. Olds says...

I am a very active psychiatrist willing to talk about all matters having to do with everything from child-rearing to couples and family relationships. I do not shrink from occasionally giving advice in order to "prime the pump" for the client to come to his or her own conclusions.
