Psychiatrists in Rhode Island

Psychiatrists are medical professionals who are trained to diagnose mental health conditions and prescribe medications to address these diagnoses. Some psychiatrists only offer medication management, others only offer talk therapy, and a few offer both. Psychiatrists in private practice are generally not in-network with health insurances, but spend longer with their patients (generally 30min to 1 hour sessions); psychiatrists in clinic settings are more commonly in-network with health insurances, but typically offer shorter appointments (typically around 15min per appointment). Whenever possible, it is very important to find a good psychiatrist who can take the time to get to know your unique symptoms, the factors that may be causing your distress, and recommend a thoughtful treatment plan.

Below are quality-vetted psychiatrists in Rhode Island. They specialize in a range of issues, including anxiety, depression, ADHD, adjustment disorders, bipolar disorder, and addictions. All psychiatrists have been vetted by the Zencare team to ensure they offer high quality, clinically rigorous care.

I know it can be very difficult to come into a stranger's office and talk about the problems that you face. So much of the time, we're expected to project an image of ourselves as successful, happy, funny, smart, tough. But I would encourage you to give yourself permission to not have to face your worries alone. This is a place where you can talk openly and not feel judged. Together, we can work towards identifying and changing the things that in your life that are keeping you from feeling your best.
For men: It's no secret that traditionally, men are much less likely than women to seek mental health care. Sometimes, even the idea of asking for help can conflict with strongly ingrained social norms about needing to be tough. A the same time though, so many of the issues that men face can be quite impairing to our functioning and disruptive to the relationships with the people we love the most.

I have worked throughout my academic and professional career to make myself accessible as a person and psychiatrist. I work very hard to create an environment where you can speak openly and honestly about your life and the things that are preventing you or your child from being the best "you." I want to help you feel confident and more able to do and get the things that are important to you out of life. I know it may be difficult to face personal struggles (anxiety, sadness, loss, grief, change, relationship distress, identity struggles, etc.), yet I will work to create a caring space where we can work together to assist you to access your talents, help you to realize or remember the abilities you have, as well as learn new ways to manage stress to grow and flourish. I will work with you to create an individual (and or family) treatment plan. If you are struggling with an illness that would benefit from medication, we can discuss options that may benefit your particular situation/diagnosis. I also provide therapy and medication (if needed) in one appointment if that is more appropriate for your circumstance. What is most important is to feel comfortable and heard, and I will do everything I can to make our work together collaborative.

I want to acknowledge how hard it may have been to even get to this step of looking for a psychiatrist. Oftentimes it can be a process months to years in the making. Now that you’re here, I really encourage you to take one more step and reach out for support. Therapy is an investment in you. It is acknowledging that you are worth the time, and you are worth the effort. It can be so hard to be vulnerable and ask for help. My treatment approach is to work collaboratively and build a foundation for a safe and nonjudgmental environment, which will allow us to work together to explore and better understand your thoughts, emotions and behaviors.

Meeting with a new psychiatrist or therapist can feel like a daunting experience, especially when you aren't feeling quite like yourself. My goal in our first session is to really get to know you, what is important to you, and when you last felt like you. Only then can we work together to figure out a treatment plan that makes the most sense for you. My treatment approach is always collaborative, and you are always in the driver's seat when it comes to decision making regarding your care.

Anxious, depressed, overwhelmed? I can help. My goal is to find the best treatment plan for you, your child, and your family. I offer an area for you to address issues at your pace while keeping an eye on your goals and wellness.

To parents: I want to start with thanking you for everything you do for your family. Being a parent is not easy, especially when you are parenting a child who is experiencing difficulty. My office is one where you will not be judged for your child's behaviors or problems because I know that is not helpful. We will work together to figure out how to support you and your child with evidence-based treatments and medications only as they are indicated. I also treat parents directly, particularly those who are struggling with the transition to parenthood or balancing the demands of parenthood with other responsibilities.

To college students and young adults: I am here to help you if you feel like your coping skills are failing you. There are so many things you can do to feel better that are safe and well-tolerated. There is no time like the present to address the factors limiting your potential.
