Professional statement

Dr. Wu is a Harvard-trained board-certified psychiatrist and lecturer in Psychiatry 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 Brookline, MA and also offers telehealth appointments.


Message to clients

Hi! It can be hard to find a good psychiatrist. Personalized mental healthcare requires a flexible and creative approach. I operate a boutique practice, where patients have access to sooner appointments and can speak to me outside of appointments, if needed. If we work together, I strive to individualize your treatment to what works best for you.

I have an active therapeutic style to make sure your sessions are engaging, helpful, and sometimes even fun! Whether it's your first time seeking out help, or you've seen previous doctors before, I'm happy to talk to you more.

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.

Specialties

Combined medication management and therapy - As a psychiatrist, I can see patients for combined medication management and therapy, which may be more convenient for individuals seeking both treatment modalities.

Bipolar disorder - Bipolar disorder is a difficult-to-treat condition, and often can have overlapping diagnoses and may be frequently mis-diagnosed. I try to first thoroughly evaluate any prior diagnoses of bipolar disorder and rule out alternative conditions such as treatment-resistant depression, ADHD, borderline personality disorder, and trauma-related conditions such as PTSD.

ADHD - Skill-building and support around organizational challenges, distracted attention, procrastination; building and maintaining healthy routines and structure

Burnout - Managing and recovering from stressors that lead to feelings of decreased motivation and disconnection from the self; practicing effective self-care and finding ways to relax both physically and mentally
