Paul E Lynch, MD, Psychiatrist in Boston
I work in a variety of ways in talk therapy to help you get what you want out of therapy. Most often that involves getting relief from painful emotional symptoms, improving personal relationships, becoming more productive in work, and being freed to take more pleasure from life. Therapy can also help you to gain greater control over your life, or change lifelong ways of coping that just aren't working as well as you'd like.
Talking things over in a safe and private environment allows you to understand yourself better, and allows me to help you identify self-destructive patterns of behavior. In this process we can unlock your creative potential, and prevent the past from interfering in the present.
As a Board Certified Psychiatrist, I provide both psychiatric evaluation and psychotherapy. I do not see patients for medications only. I am on the faculty of Tufts Medical School, the Massachusetts Institute for Psychoanalysis, and the Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute.
