Therapists Specializing in Medical Professionals' Mental Health in Rhode Island

Many medical professionals are at risk of burnout and work-related stress due to the nature of the work: long hours, a complex and intense workload, exposure to suffering, and a high emotional load.

So many people feel alone in their struggles, as well as disconnected from friends, family, and self. Seeking support is a brave step that signifies the desire for change, fulfillment and/or connection. Building a relationship with a therapist who is a good match for you and experiencing good therapy will be life changing. It is so important to find a therapist that you respect and connect well with, someone who can bring care and comfort to your most vulnerable parts.
Message to clients with an eating disorder: Struggling with an eating disorder can be such a lonely and isolating experience. Feelings are often internalized and it feels foreign or too scary to externalize them in a state of pure vulnerability. The eating disorder behaviors are helpful to numb self and distract from the current emotions and/or present stressors in your life. Although CBT and DBT skills can be helpful tools to help restructure distorted thinking, regulate emotions and improve distress, I find that it does not shift behaviors. This result leaves people feeling hopeless and frustrated. I feel passionate that the work I do with my clients not only improves symptoms, but is also transformative in the way they relate to family, friends and self.

My name is Dr. Mark Gindi and I am a psychiatrist trained in both psychopharmacology as well as talk therapy. My goal is to always provide patients with compassionate, evolved, evidenced-based treatment that stabilizes their acute symptoms as well as enhances their relationship with themselves. Psychiatric conditions can be complex as they emerge from the intersection of a person’s psychological history, biological endowments, and social context. By forming a therapeutic relationship based on honesty and collaboration, I’m honored and humbled by the opportunity to help someone control their condition and grow into a better understanding of themselves. When medications are used, my aim is to always medicate a person with a conservative approach that is proportional to the burden of their symptoms. As a writer, I am also quite sensitive to the potential effects of medications on people’s creativity and emotional attunement to the world around them.

A message to young adults: Therapy is a very important and sometimes difficult decision to make. For most of you who are as accomplished as you are, coming to someone and talking about things that you don't know how to figure out is even more difficult because you've gotten where you've gotten by being able to make things work on your own, and I really understand that. This is your safe space, a space for you to figure out what you want to accomplish; and my job is to work in collaboration with you to help you get where you want to go.

A message to parents: Being a parent is probably one of the hardest jobs that anyone's gotten or opted to take on, and caring about your children and making things work for them is your goal; realizing your children may need help, especially beyond that which you know how to give them is hard and talking to someone about that is also difficult. My job is to have us work together here, setting goals along with your child so that we work together in the same way to get things accomplished that you want as a family.

My clients generally come to me seeking help with eating and body image issues, anxiety, feelings of depression, or some other life challenge. Working together, we use a combination of psychotherapeutic approaches to understand causes and contributors and plot a course of action. The process of therapy of therapy typically involves helping clients get in better touch with their feelings and values. Over the course of our work together you can expect to move from a problem solving mode to one of deepening self knowledge and expanding potential. Most clients find psychotherapy a rewarding, and often exciting journey.

We all need a hand sometimes, perhaps now more than ever. I specialize in working with girls and women ages 15-75. I believe women are unique and that our strengths, needs and experiences are unique; my approach is tailored to those unique strengths, needs and experiences. I whole-heartedly believe that the connection and relationship between client and therapist is one of the most healing aspects in psychotherapy. Through therapy we can learn to develop mutually empowering, growth- fostering connections and to resist disconnections.

I support individuals through difficult times, and work with a wide range of issues including, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, traumatic stress, body image, self-esteem, relational resilience, grief & loss, relationship/family concerns, LGBTQ, alienating social-cultural pressures growth, and creating more meaning and purpose in one's life.

Our stories may be different, but we all have one. Making time for yourself during challenging times, is often the kindest thing you can do for yourself. It may be what changes your life. If you would like more information, please call, or send a brief email via the link on this page, or the contact form on my website. I look forward to speaking with you.

I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the foundation of treatment. As such, I maintain a validating environment to explore and develop a shared understanding of what brings my clients to therapy and how we can work together to accomplish specific goals and develop insight.

I frequently work with my clients to develop skills to manage their emotions, improve self-esteem, and establish deeper, more meaningful relationships. My style is direct, active, and flexible, with a focus on what works for each individual client. My clients would describe me as authentic and able to challenge them in a respectful and caring manner. My hope is for each client I work with to find and express their true selves.

I appreciate how challenging the process of change can be and have a great deal of respect for anyone seeking treatment. It is a privilege to accompany my clients as they develop a greater sense of fulfillment in life and more confidence in their ability to manage challenges. I look forward to hearing from you so we can begin this important process together!

It is a wonderful time to be a therapist. We have many powerful tools that help create enduring positive change and quicken that process.
As a clinical psychologist, healer, trainer, and consultant. I help people restore a wholesome relationship between their cerebral intelligence and their natural intelligence. I teach people that problems are, almost always, a path to greater vitality, freedom and enduring peace.
I help individuals, groups and organizations enjoy an ever deeper felt connection with the spiritual dimension of their lives and their communities. I teach them how to seamlessly fold transformative spiritual practices (within and beyond their particular religious tradition) into the fabric of their professional and private lives.
Central to my healing practice is a model of therapy called Internal Family Systems (IFS) and I am a certified IFS therapist. Among the other tools in my healing toolkit are Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), One Eye Brain Integration, Brainspotting, and a relational mindfulness practice that I have been developing over the past 15 years, Structured Self-Presence© (SSP).
My practice, ways of thinking and doing, are deeply informed by the perennial wisdom of the world’s wisdom traditions as well as current behavioral and brain research.
In addition to a psychologist, I am a husband and father. I play the saxophone, clarinet, a little piano and less djembe. I love sing alongs and playing music with my family and friends.
