Dr. Gaveras holds the position of Chief Psychiatrist at Talkiatry. She is board certified in child, adolescent and adult psychiatry as well as in addiction medicine and has been practicing for over 17 years. In addition to general and child and adolescent psychiatry, Dr. Gaveras is also board certified in addiction medicine and trained in the Eating Disorders, Compulsions and Addictions Service (EDCAS) at the William Alanson White Institute. While having treated a wide variety of patients, her primary clinical focus has been in the treatment of adolescents and young adults with co-occuring substance use disorders.
Talkiatry takes medication management seriously. All state and local databases of your history of controlled substances are reviewed and taken into account in the course of your initial evaluation along with all other prescription and non-prescription medication.
Dr. Gaveras does not perform therapy and focuses on medication management only. In order to provide the best care possible, she requires patients who need therapy to have a current therapist prior to being seen for their initial visit at Talkiatry.
