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.

Dependent On Alcohol? Consult Our Psychiatrists In Massachusetts
Alcohol dependence is a serious problem that can lead to many health and social problems. If you or someone you know is dependent on alcohol, there are many treatment options available. Alcohol dependence is a chronic disease that is characterized by a strong craving for alcohol, continued use despite harmful consequences, and the inability to control drinking. People who are dependent on alcohol may feel that they cannot function without it.
Treatment for alcohol dependence usually involves a combination of counseling, support groups, and medication. Medication can help to reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Counseling can help people to understand the underlying causes of their dependence and to develop coping and problem-solving skills. Support groups can provide social and emotional support.
Speak To Our Psychiatrists About Your Alcohol Addiction
Medical detoxification is the first and most important step in treatment. This process helps the individual to physically and psychologically withdraw from alcohol. It is important to detox under medical supervision, as withdrawal from alcohol can be dangerous. Once detox is complete, the individual can begin rehabilitation. This may involve inpatient or outpatient treatment and may last for a period of weeks or months. Treatment typically includes therapy, support groups, and sometimes medication. The goal of rehabilitation is to help the individual abstain from alcohol and develop healthy coping mechanisms.
Relapse prevention is an important part of treatment. This may involve developing a support network, learning to identify triggers, and developing coping strategies. Alcohol dependence is a serious problem that requires professional treatment. With the right help, individuals can overcome dependence and lead healthy, fulfilling lives.
