Robert Feeley M.D., M.A.

In the treatment of addiction, he utilizes pharmacological approaches (including suboxone) as well as non-pharmacological approaches including auricular acupuncture, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and 12-step facilitation.

An Individualized Solution

“I aim to view a condition through multiple lenses before choosing the best, most individualized solution. It is a great privilege to walk alongside clients, to hear their stories, and to establish a close alliance and trust during vulnerable periods in life. I am excited by this work and being of service to my clients is immensely important to me. “

Science Meets Spirituality

“I am interested in the intersection of psychiatry and spirituality. I am a meditation instructor and have found that meditation is an invaluable asset in maintaining presence, careful listening, and compassion. I am on the physician advisory board, as well as an instructor for, Advanced Physician Wellness – an organization which teaches meditation to physicians to prevent burnout, enhance resiliency, promote well-being, and better manage stress.”
