Dr. Richard Frank, MD

I am a child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist who specializes in psychotherapy of individuals, couples and families. I am a graduate. of Yale Medical School; adult and child psychiatric residency training at McLean Hospital in Belmont, MA, and Boston Psychoanalytic Institute. Currently I am in solo full time practice. I am an Asst. Professor of Psychiatry of the Medical College of Wisconsin, where I teach adult and child psychotherapy. I am also a Training Analyst and former Director of the Wisconsin Psychoanalytic Institute. Psychoanalytic training is an independent course of study in addition to the required training to attain certification in one's professional field (e.g., counseling, social work, psychology, psychiatry). It is possibly the most in-depth training in the practice of psychotherapy, involving years of practice of intensive therapy under supervision, didactic seminars, and completion of one's own extensive personal psychotherapy with a senior analyst.

Dr. Frank's Care Philosophy

Every person who asks me for help is a unique individual. My first job is to get to know you well through a mutual examination of your past and present experience. We focus on your strengths and goals as well as your difficulties. I teach my students that people come for treatment when their usual ways of coping no longer work. You have gotten "stuck" in your development, while suffering a variety of painful symptoms which may include anxiety, depressed mood, poor self-esteem, loneliness, apathy and conflicted relationships. Psychodynamic psychotherapy is a treatment based on the establishment of a dependable therapeutic relationship marked by trust and empathic understanding. Working together we can promote deep going insight you can use to substantially change maladaptive patterns of thought, feeling and behavior. If your problem involves a significant biological component, medication may be combined with psychotherapy to achieve a successful result.
