Dr. Flannery is a graduate of The Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City and did her residency in pediatrics at Infants and Children at Tufts-New England Medical Center. While working in the private practice of pediatrics for fourteen years in Milton, she was an assistant clinical professor of pediatrics at New England Medical Center.
In 1995 she started the pediatrics department in a Columbia University affiliated clinic in upstate New York that serves primarily the rural poor. Because there was almost no child psychiatry available to her patients, she took numerous courses in pediatric psychopharmacology at Harvard and Albert Einstein and managed her patients' psychopharmacologic needs. She also served as the psychpharmacologist for an agency that provides services for children at risk for placement outside of their homes. During this period she was an assistant clinical professor of pediatrics at the Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons.
Dr. Flannery has returned to the Boston area to work alongside therapists and provide medication management when needed for the comprehensive treatment of children and adolescents with ADHD, anxiety and depression. From her many years in pediatrics she brings an understanding of the "whole child." In addition, she comes from a family of psychologically oriented professionals. Her father, a pediatrician in Connecticut, worked and studied with the famous pediatrician and psychologist Dr. Arnold Gesell at the Yale Child Development Center. One of her siblings is a clinical psychologist and the other is a psychiatrist.
Dr. Flannery now offers pharmacologic management of ADHD, anxiety and depression in children and adolescents. She practices at the Weaver Clinic in Weston, MA at (781) 894-4561 and also at Atlantic Counseling in Weymouth, MA at (781) 335-6000.
