**I AM NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME.**



I know there is widespread concern in our community about COVID-19 (the coronavirus), and I want you to know that your health is my top priority.
To support people to practice their best self-care, all sessions will take place via telehealth or video conferencing due to COVID-19 (the coronavirus). This is a permanent change.  


The Secure Client Portal is your access point to all services available as a client, such as:

  • scheduling appointments,
  • communicating with me confidentially,
  • uploading documents,
  • and making secure payments.

Your information is kept safe with a HIPAA compliant encryption program and the latest technology to assure that all records remain completely confidential. The structure of the system ensures professional accountability for your personal health information (PHI) which is required by law and in your best interest. My clinical notes are kept within this site, eliminating the chance that any information about you can be found through my computer. I do not keep any paper records. 

Since you will be entering the site through your unique username and password, there is no chance for anyone to view your information through your computer either, unless you choose to allow this access. All clients must use this site and register in order to receive my services. There are no apps to download and registration is free

Please use the link below to schedule a free fifteen minute phone consult, as a first step. If we have already spoken, I will redirect you here to request your first appointment. 

Please be sure to check my Policies page for details.

BEFORE REQUESTING A FREE PHONE CONSULT, please note:

  • I work only with adults, 21 years of age and over.
  • Currently I accept Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Tufts, and ComPsych for insurance. Some of these companies offer public plans, which I do not accept. I do not accept Mass Health or Medicare.
  • If I do not take your insurance, I offer a sliding scale of $75-120 per forty-five minute session. You would need to pay my sliding scale fee up front and submit documentation (that I can provide) to your insurance company for reimbursement.
  • My office is virtual only and I can see anyone anywhere in Massachusetts via telehealth. Due to the coronavirus state of emergency in Massachusetts, all co-pays and deductibles are being waived for telehealth which means you can receive therapy at no cost as long as your insurance is based in MA and the state of emergency remains in effect. If you will be filing claims for out of pocket payment, you should be reimbursed the full fee. There are some exceptions to this state wide edict, for example, federal plans still require co-pays. You can always check your plan and we can talk about the details.
  • A verification email for your phone consult will be sent through the secure client portal. Please watch for these emails, as they contain contact instructions. Check your spam folder if you do not find it in your inbox. If you receive a link for a video call, please ignore it. This is a phone consult, not a video call.
  • New client appointments require two days advance notice. Please note that appointments requested on Fridays, after 5pm, for the following Monday will be declined as the office is closed on weekends (and holidays). Other requests will receive a response the next business day.

Whether you hunkering down at home, or showing up at your job, work can be a big contributor to life stress. Here’s help.

So here’s how the cycle works:

A hard day at work. You hit traffic on the way in. The boss is in a bad mood. A co-worker is out sick and you have to pick up the slack. Customers are acting like customers and being especially difficult. Under pressure, you crank out a rush job. And you make an error.

The result? You guessed it! Stress.

And what didn’t happen that day?
