About My Psychiatric Partner

While telemedicine is incredibly convenient and improves your access to care, the even greater benefit of working with us is our commitment to quality treatment. Each provider is trained and supported by Dr. Richard Nockowitz, a Harvard-trained psychiatrist and the founder of this service, and works closely with him to ensure precise diagnosing and effective medication strategies. With their help you or your patients will receive thoughtful and thorough treatment that is focused on remission and stability.

You will also receive unmatched support and communication from Cynthia Neubert, who is the co-founder of this service and an expert in practice management and organizational efficiency.

Welcome to My Psychiatric Partner



    What is psychiatry?

    Psychiatry is a medical specialty dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders. Psychiatrists are Doctors of Medicine, and Nurse Practitioners are Masters of Science in Nursing with Advanced Practice prescriptive authority. Both are trained and certified in the use of medications to treat mental health conditions, and MPP offers the best providers in both disciplines to provide you with great care.


    What is telemedicine?

    Telemedicine is the use of electronic communications such as videoconferencing or telephone to provide medical care. Telemedicine via videoconferencing is now a widely used and accepted means of patient care, and research shows that it is as effective as a face-to-face visit, and certainly more convenient.

    At MPP, we believe telemedicine is especially effective for the practice of psychiatry for several reasons. First, unlike other medical specialties, in the field of psychiatry safe and effective assessment and treatment does not typically require a hands-on physical examination. That, together with the advances in the quality and reliability of videoconferencing, makes telemedicine a perfect way to deliver psychiatric care. Additionally, being able to receive care remotely in the comfort of your own home both alleviates anxiety or shame barriers associated with visiting a psychiatry office, and greatly enhances the patient’s sense of privacy and security.


    What is telepsychiatry?

    Telepsychiatry is the practice of psychiatry using telemedicine.

What is the Difference Between Psychiatry & Psychology?

Whereas psychiatrists and psychiatric nurse practitioners are medically-trained clinicians who prescribe medications for the treatment of mental disorders, psychologists are non-medical professionals whose training and practice is focused on psychotherapy, or talk therapy. My Psychiatric Partner (MPP) specializes in the medication treatment of psychiatric conditions, and does not offer talk therapy by itself. However, as some patients need both medication management and talk therapy to improve, we are always happy to recommend psychotherapy resources to our patients when needed. Feel free to schedule an evaluation with us to help you determine the kind of treatment you need.
