Simreet Khaira, MD, Psychiatrist in Newton
I am a Boston child & adult psychiatrist who offers psychiatric diagnostic assessments, medication consultation, psychopharmacology, and psychotherapy services. I am interested in psychodynamic therapy and cognitive behavioral approaches, and enjoy working with adults as well as children and families. I treat a wide array of mental health issues and diagnoses. Employing a warm and culturally sensitive approach, I aim to align and work together in symptom alleviation, problem solving, and meaningful exploration.
I believe in the power of psychoeducation, non-judgmental and reflective listening, the importance of a therapeutic alliance, and collaboration in treatment planning. I believe that mental health is an important public health issue and that good quality of life is imperative. I find working with and helping those who are suffering deeply rewarding.
I attended medical school at Kasturba Medical College, Manipal in India. I found my passion for psychiatry as I advanced in my training. I completed my Adult Psychiatry Residency training at Tufts Medical Center and went on to complete a Fellowship in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Tufts Medical Center.
