Mark Strecker M.D., Child, Adolescent and Adult Psychiatrist
How do we learn to understand and trust what our feelings are saying to us? What makes it possible to change entrenched ways of coping that are not working? My focus in therapy is to help patients deepen their personal relationships and find their work more rewarding; medication can sometimes help alleviate symptoms that interfere with achieving these goals. By providing a safe and supportive environment for the patient's search for self-understanding, and listening closely to what is being said and not said, I collaborate with the patient in finding creative and pragmatic ways to overcome obstacles to change.
As a Harvard Medical School-trained Child, Adolescent and Adult Psychiatrist with thirty years of experience, I combine psychotherapy and medication as needed, to treat a broad range of psychiatric disorders. I specialize in the treatment of ADHD, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder and other anxiety disorders across the life span.
I accept most forms of Blue Cross Blue Shield, Harvard Pilgrim, United Behavioral Health and Tufts, as well as plans with out-of-network benefits, and offer daytime and early evening appointments, in a safe, private and convenient setting. I am comfortable seeing patients just for psychopharmacology, if they already have a therapist, but can also offer patients both psychotherapy and medication management, as needed.
