Narrative of Services:

In my private practice (, I provide comprehensive video medication consultations for individuals seeking OCD expertise for help in getting a treatment on track or for diagnostic clarification.

At MGH, I spend the majority of my time providing medication treatment for OCD and related disorders. Over the last decade while on staff at MGH, I estimate that I have cared for well over 1000 individuals suffering from these conditions.

Training Description:

I am the Medical Director of the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) Center for OCD and Related Disorders, Director of Pharmacology in the MGH Excoriation Clinic, and Instructor at Harvard Medical School. I graduated from Harvard Medical School and completed my psychiatry residency at MGH/McLean. Additionally, I earned a Ph.D. in molecular neurobiology during my medical training. I have specialized in treating OCD and obsessive-compulsive related disorders for the past 10 years. I am often consulted both from within MGH and nationally and have been invited to speak on more than 30 occasions on the treatment of OCD and related disorders.
