Psychiatrists in Massachusetts (MA)

Suzanne Szalay, Psychiatrist  in Sherborn
“As a Jungian analytic psychiatrist and mindfulness instructor, I view symptoms and difficulties as invitations to healing awareness. Our bodily symptoms, moods, relationship issues, dreams--are messengers with important information from a part of us that's trying to tell us something. Relational, situational, and attitudinal glitches all contain helpful messages that want to be welcomed into conscious awareness. By learning the language of our body-mind, we can find out what it is we're trying to tell ourselves. Getting the message eases our difficulties, and transforms our symptoms into healing awareness and wisdom.

Gary Warstadt, Psychiatrist  in Randolph
“I believe deeply that people can change their lives, and I have dedicated my life's work to just that. Patterns of behavior always exist for good reason. They begin as a way of adapting to circumstances, then the situation changes, and years later, what was once a way to cope has now become a liability. There is nothing more gratifying than assisting people in recognizing these lifelong patterns in which they have been entwined, and learning how to slip those bonds. Understanding alone, though, is not enough. The hard part is putting together and implementing a plan to change.

Diane Germano, Psychiatric Nurse  in Brookline
“My practice focuses on helping people with anxiety, depression, and mood disorders; individuation within the framework of psychodynamic psychotherapy. I particularly enjoy working with adolescents, adults, couples, and people involved in the arts. Childhood experiences and relationships with one's family of origin influence an individual's personality and provides a template for future relationships. It can therefore be fruitful to understand via therapy that your family relationships are not destiny. I believe therapy is a psychological and spiritual journey, requiring empathy, patience, and validation of feelings.

The Hallowell Center Sudbury MA, Psychiatrist  in Sudbury
“I specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD in people of all ages. I use a strength- based approach. I do not treat disabilities so much as help people unwrap their gifts. Having both ADHD and dyslexia myself helps me understand these conditions from a personal as well as professional standpoint. I believe in creating a atmosphere that exudes positive energy in my offices in Sudbury, MA, New York City, and San Francisco. All the clinicians I hire subscribe to my strength-based approach.

Catherine Boutin, Psychiatric Nurse  in Watertown
“I know that there are challenges in each person's life and I strongly believe that talking helps. I engage those that I work with by using dynamic psychotherapy. This is an ongoing process of talking, thinking and feeling. As these elements are shared, reconsidered, and reviewed over time a deeper understanding of the self emerges. This understanding leads to more choices in one's life. I respect the abilities that people bring to the challenges of life and their capacities to make changes. I treat the person not the diagnosis.

Psychiatric Nurse, PhD, PMHCNS, BC
“People seek help during periods of crisis, times of transition or change, and while navigating the challenges of maintaining health. I believe that the role of a skillful clinician is to provide excellent and thorough ongoing assessment and effective intervention, taking into consideration culture, gender and life circumstances. My approach to treatment is client-centered and I offer strategies to symptom management that are based in current knowledge. I have specialized training in sleep and its relationship to psychiatric illnesses. Inadequate management of disordered sleep and daytime sleepiness yields poorer clinical outcomes and the risk of worsening symptoms over time.

“While a person can feel better after a good talk with a friend or relative, for moderate or severe psychiatric symptoms, this relief is only temporary. Being professionally evaluated and treated with appropriate psychiatric medication will often alleviate the psychiatric symptoms quickly and effectively. With more than more than forty years of combined professional experience, Dr. Jeffrey Speller and Dr. Tanya Joanne Korkosz are Harvard-trained physicians and psychiatrists who specialize in the use of psychiatric medication for adolescents (12 to 19) and adults with Attention Deficit Disorder and associated disorders.

Some clients are responsible for elderly parents, others are dealing with divorce, remarriage or widowhood.

Steven Benyas, Psychiatrist  in Westborough
“I provide individual therapy, as well as medication management if desired and appropriate. Trained in all major methods, I tailor my approach to what will be helpful for the situation. Taking medication is a personal decision, weighing the potential pros and cons. Medications are very helpful for many people, but must be used thoughtfully. The oversimplified and greatly advertised idea that genetically-determined brain chemistry causes suffering overlooks the fact that experience affects brain chemistry, too. Our own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors change our brains. This is why therapy is so important if you want to achieve lasting changes.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

A Psychiatrist in Massachusetts (MA) is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

Massachusetts (MA) Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication or psychotropics. Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans and MRIs.

Some psychiatric practitioners in Massachusetts (MA) specialize in age groups (so check for Massachusetts (MA) child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Massachusetts (MA)). Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists or geropsychiatrists.

Other related specialties include psychopharmacology (certain states license Psychopharmacologists), psychiatric genetics and neuroimaging.

Psychiatric nurses in Massachusetts (MA), or mental health nurses, specialize in nursing care for people with mental illness or mental distress. Massachusetts (MA) Psychiatric nurses receive training in psychological therapies (such as CBT), building therapeutic alliance with clients and dealing with challenging behavior. Importantly, they are trained to administer psychiatric medication (or 'psychiatric meds') and, in very limited ways, to prescribe meds.

Nurses monitor for side effects and responses to medical treatments and offer information on meds so that clients can make informed choices about their use.
