Telehealth offers clients an easy, flexible way of accessing health care without having to take time out of your day to commute to an office. I meet with clients via SimplePractice, a HIPAA-compliant platform that allows therapist and client to speak face-to-face using a secure internet connection. Due to state licensing restrictions, I can only see clients who live in either Massachusetts or Pennsylvania.
Your first appointment will be a diagnostic evaluation lasting approximately 60 minutes, during which time we will discuss what brought you to therapy, identify what issues are causing you the most distress, and agree on a treatment plan for addressing those issues. This may actually require a couple sessions to help us best understand how we can help you.
After your initial evaluation, therapy can begin based on whatever treatment plan makes the most sense. These recurring therapy sessions usually last around 50 minutes unless otherwise agreed upon. We can use the time to talk about whatever's on your mind and/or learn new skills to help you deal with your problems.
Simply call me at (857) 423-9764. I offer a 30-minute telephone consultation free of charge. During this time we can discuss what you are looking for in a therapist and whether we would be a good fit. If I am unable to see you, I will try to provide referrals and recommendations as I am able.
Yes and no. I accept certain Blue Cross and Optum plans. If you have an insurance plan that I don't accept, you may still be able to be reimbursed if you have Out-of-Network (OON) benefits. Please contact me to learn more about your options.
Recurring psychotherapy sessions are $165. The initial diagnostic evaluation is $200.
Due to the risk of no-shows for initial appointments, I require a credit card to book an intake. In general, appointments canceled with less than 24 hours advance notice are subject to the full session fee unless the appointment can be rescheduled within the same week.
I see adults 18+ from all different backgrounds with a wide range of experiences. There is no such thing as a "typical client." Everyone brings something unique to therapy and everyone's issues are valid.
