Professional statement

Dr. Wu is a Harvard-trained board-certified psychiatrist and instructor at Harvard Medical School and McLean Hospital. He has experience working with diagnostically complex patients both in private practice and in high acuity care settings including residential treatment and inpatient settings for detoxification and psychiatric stabilization. He aims to provide individualized medication and therapeutic treatment for his patients to maximize their well-being. He also provides second-opinion psychiatric consultations.

Regardless of diagnosis, Dr. Wu strives to be available with timely appointments with patients if needed during difficult periods of their lives to meet their needs. He enjoys working with young professionals and entrepreneurs experiencing career burnout and exploring the potential psychiatric overlap with their current conditions.

Dr. Wu understands that psychiatric care can be complicated and that a one-size-fits-all approach does not suit everyone. He is experienced with standard evidence-based treatments for psychiatric conditions, and also understands the need to go beyond standard care if needed for his patients given their unique circumstances.

Dr. Wu has both in-person availability in Belmont, MA and also offers telehealth appointments.


Message to clients

Hi! It's hard to find a good psychiatrist. I strive to be as transparent as possible with my patients when it comes to discussing and exploring their psychiatric needs. I strive to establish a warm and non-judgmental therapeutic space, but will also provide accountability and humor when warranted in order to accomplish your goals. I have an active therapeutic style to make sure your sessions are engaging, helpful, and sometimes even fun! I have broad experience with management of bipolar disorder, depression, and anxiety disorders, and applying multimodal therapeutic techniques like DBT and ACT to best suit my patients needs.

Feel free to reach out by phone or email, I'd love to speak with you for a free 15-minute consultation to see if I'm the right fit for you.
