Massachusetts Psychiatric Services & Rates
- The integrative psychiatric assessment is an opportunity to have a comprehensive evaluation of the psychiatric, medical, and holistic aspects of your health. Assessments include a complete psychiatric interview, review of your outside medical records and labs, review of medications and supplements, and analysis of labs. Patient education regarding the various treatment options will be discussed so patients can make well-informed decisions regarding their treatment. A personalized treatment plan for optimal health will be developed in collaboration with the patient.
- After the initial consultation, if we both feel we can work well together, then we will schedule follow up sessions based on your needs and individualized recommendations for care. My goal is to set you on the path to feeling well and staying well. If treatment with medication is initiated, we will closely monitor medication efficacy and side-effects. Once your symptoms have been adequately managed and treated with medication management, care will continue to be provided through medication checks to ensure ongoing mental wellness.
We do not accept insurance at this time. If your insurance company will reimburse for telemedicine visits, we can supply you with a superbill you can present to your insurance company. On rare occasions, additional administrative work may be required outside of your appointment time including document preparation for a third party (attorney, employer, etc.); medical record handling; completion of any paperwork/forms; and obtaining any prior authorizations for medications or treatment. We charge an additional fee for these administrative tasks. Time is billed in quarter-hour increments at $250/hr.

There are many different approaches to treating Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and what works best may vary depending on the individual. Some common treatments include medication, behavioral therapy, and educational interventions. Medication is often the first line of treatment for ADHD. Stimulant medications such as methylphenidate (Ritalin) and amphetamines (Adderall) are the most commonly prescribed, and they have been shown to be effective in reducing symptoms in 70-80% of people with ADHD. Non-stimulant medications such as atomoxetine (Strattera) may also be effective, particularly in people who cannot tolerate or do not respond to stimulants.
ADHD is a common neurodevelopmental disorder that affects children and adults. Symptoms include difficulty paying attention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. ADHD can lead to problems in school, work, and social relationships. There is no single cause of ADHD, but it is believed to be caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors.

Behavioral therapy is another common treatment for ADHD. It involves working with a therapist to identify and change problematic behaviors. This can be an effective treatment on its own, or it can be used in conjunction with medication.
Educational interventions are also important in treating ADHD. Many people with ADHD struggle in school, so it is important to work with teachers and other school staff to develop an Individualized Education Program (IEP) that meets the child's needs. This might include things like allowing the child to take breaks during class, providing extra time for tests, or giving instructions in a different way.
The most important thing is to work with a professional who can help you figure out what treatment or combination of treatments is best for your ADHD. You can consult our professional psychiatrists at Intend Wellness Psychiatry about your ADHD. Contact us today for more information!
