David Dybdal, MD, PhD, Psychiatrist in Boston
I am a Harvard-trained, Harvard-affiliated psychiatrist and psychotherapist in Boston, MA. As a psychiatrist and psychotherapist, I specialize in the concomitant use of medication and psychotherapy to achieve not only remission of distressing symptoms but also recovery and wellness in those with whom I work. When working with other therapists, I utilize a highly collaborative model, with close contact and communication between treaters to achieve optimal results.
As a healer, my goal is not only to ameliorate the symptoms of distress and disease but also to engage so as to maximize growth, satisfaction, fulfillment, and wellness.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions via my website, www.drdaviddybdal.com. I look forward to the possibility of working with you!
