I am a psychiatrist (Adult, Child and Adolescent), in private practice in Lexington, MA. I specialize in individual psychotherapy, family therapy, and psychoanalysis. While I am happy to prescribe medications when needed, I would consider myself quite conservative in that area; and typically will prescribe medication only when I am also providing the necessry psychotherapy for the adult, or child, adolescent, and their family.
I maintain my academic affiliation through the Cambridge Health Alliance/Harvard Medical School where I teach in areas including child and adolescent suicide and psychotherapy. I am a member of and a faculty member at the Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute. In terms of national affiliations, I am on the Psychotherapy Committee of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and oftentimes present lectures at the organization's annual meeting.
I am happy to discuss your concerns over the phone and determine whether I might be of some help to you.
thanks, Timothy Dugan, M.D.
