She is a faculty member of the Brown University Warren Alpert Medical School Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior. She has experience in both complex psychopharmacology as well as psychodynamic and psychoanalytic psychotherapy. She specializes in working with students with a history of trauma, anxiety, mood disorders, and ADHD throughout their academic careers. It is important to her to gain a deep understanding of her patients in order to provide them with therapy and/or medication to allow them to be both successful as students and to navigate interpersonal relationships in a healthy way.
Dr. Tytell works to provide a safe and compassionate environment in order to allow patients to develop a deeper understanding of themselves. Often, patterns of thinking, relating, and behaving develop in childhood that make it difficult to manage relationships and be successful in school or in one’s career. The goal is to develop increasing flexibility and healthier ways of relating, which allow for deeper and more connected relationships and more fulfilling and productive lives. Dr. Tytell has experience in working with college, graduate, and medical students as they write their dissertations, work through difficult courses, and make decisions around their careers. She also sees many medical professionals as they progress throughout their training. As a former emergency physician, she has an understanding of the pressures associated with caregiving and vicarious trauma.
Dr. Tytell received her MD and completed her psychiatry residency at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. She previously completed residencies in internal medicine and emergency medicine at Northwestern University, bringing in-depth expertise in both psychological and physical wellness to her private practice.
