Howard M Katz, Psychiatrist  in Brookline
“Over 35 years of practice, I have understood that first and foremost, a therapy relationship must provide trust and safety. In such a setting, close and active listening helps to illuminate a personís inner world and establish a dialog that deepens self-understanding and acceptance. An expanded narrative of the self and discovery of new modes of thinking leads toward more positive feeling and action. I am pragmatic: People want help with pressing problems in living and we go with what works Ė choosing from a range of psychodynamic approaches those best tailored to a personís specific needs.

“I am systems-oriented, and work with family as well as the child. I will work with your therapist, school, and anyone who will help. I am outcome-oriented (I get results). I believe that progress is more achievable than most assume; it is in the nature of childhood that children advance, develop, whereas to stay in place is to lose ground. I am experienced, skilled, and well-trained (Harvard, Yale). Children need love and sometimes the help of a good child psychiatrist. I don't stop at rendering services; I am your psychiatrist; I assumes responsibility.

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.
