Theodore P. Wasik, M.D.
Psychiatrist located in Cambridge, MA
Dr. Theodore P. Wasik has worked as a clinician and researcher in psychiatry and psychology for almost thirty years. In his private practice in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Dr. Wasik sees patients with complaints of depression, anxiety, and self-esteem problems, like self-doubt and self-criticism. Also seen are patients who repeatedly do self-destructive things, whether it be from OCD or trouble resisting certain kinds of impulses. An area of specialty for Dr. Wasik are those patients who have bodily symptoms or pain where psychological factors play a role, such as IBS, fibromyalgia, chronic back pain, and other psychosomatic complaints. The treatment used by Dr. Wasik for any of these problems is therapy on a once-a-week or more frequent basis, with psychoanalysis being available for those patients seeking an even more intensive form of treatment. Medication may be prescribed, but only conservatively and where needed.
Dr. Wasik earned his Bachelor’s degree in psychology at the Catholic University of America and later studied neuroscience at the University of Pittsburgh. Training in medicine and psychiatry at Temple University School of Medicine and the Medical College of Virginia was followed by advanced training in psychoanalysis at the Boston Psychoanalytic Society & Institute. Today Dr. Wasik specializes in the treatment of adult patients, ages 18 and over, at his comfortable, converted Victorian house-turned-office at 61 Roseland Street, Cambridge, MA.
