Amy Funkenstein, MD

Psychiatrist
1180 Beacon Street
Suite 4C
Brookline, Massachusetts 02446

Narrative of Services:

I offer family based approaches to all treatment. I believe the best way to help an individual is to create a knowledgeable support network around them and impart them with the skills and resources necessary to help any given patient’s journey towards wellness. I use multiple modalities including exposure with response prevention, habit reversal therapy, family therapy and psychodynamic therapy where appropriate. I also use medications as a way to improve symptoms so patients are better able to focus on the therapeutic work.

Facilities accessible by clients of all mobility levels: Yes

Training Description:

I graduated from University of Massachusetts Medical School and completed my residency at Cambridge Health Alliance, Harvard Medical School before attending fellowship at Rhode Island hospital, Brown Medical school. It was there that I began treating people with OCD. I later became an attending psychiatrist in the Intensive Treatment Program for OCD at Bradley Hospital and for personal reasons, relocated to Boston where I have treated children and adults with OCD and related disorders at Tufts Medical Center and now in private practice. I believe in family-centered, comprehensive care.
