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.

Suffering From A Major Life Change? We Can Help!
Adjustment disorders are a type of mental disorder that can occur after a person experiences a major life event or change. The event or change can be positive or negative, but it must be significant enough to cause a significant amount of stress. Common events that can trigger an adjustment disorder include getting married, getting divorced, starting a new job, losing a job, and moving to a new home.
Symptoms of an adjustment disorder can include feeling sad or depressed, feeling anxious or stressed, having difficulty sleeping, and losing interest in activities that used to be enjoyable. Adjustment disorders can also cause physical symptoms such as headaches, stomachaches, and fatigue. If you are experiencing symptoms of an adjustment disorder, treatment can help. Treatment typically involves counseling or therapy, and it may also include medication. Counseling can help you learn how to cope with the stress of the event or change, and therapy can help you identify and change any negative thinking patterns.

Psychotherapy is a type of counseling that can help people with AD learn how to cope with stressful life events. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapy that has been shown to be effective in treating AD. CBT can help people identify and change negative thinking patterns that may be contributing to their symptoms.
Medication can also be used to treat symptoms of AD. Antidepressants, anti-anxiety medications, and sedatives are all commonly prescribed to people with AD. It’s important to work with a mental health professional to find the right medication and dosage for you. Making lifestyle changes can also help people with AD manage their symptoms. Exercise, relaxation techniques, and getting enough sleep are all important for people with AD. Avoiding alcohol and drugs can also help people with AD stay on track with their treatment.
