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.

Let Us Treat Your Bipolar Disorder In Massachusetts
Bipolar disorder, also known as manic depression, is a mental illness that is characterized by extreme mood swings. Individuals with bipolar disorder can experience periods of extreme elation, known as mania, followed by periods of deep depression. While there is no cure for bipolar disorder, there are treatment options available that can help to manage the symptoms and allow those affected to live relatively normal lives.
Mania is often the first stage of bipolar disorder to appear and is characterized by an abnormally elevated mood. Individuals may feel excessively happy or excited and have boundless energy. They may also become more impulsive and engaged in risky behaviors. During a manic episode, an individual may feel like they are on top of the world and that nothing can bring them down.
Speak To Our Massachusetts Psychiatrists About Your Bipolar Disorder
While mania can be a pleasurable experience for some, it can also be very dangerous. The impulsive nature of mania can lead to risky behaviors, such as spending sprees, unsafe sex, and substance abuse. Additionally, the elevated mood can become so extreme that it interferes with an individual’s ability to function normally. Some may become so irritable that they lash out at others, while others may become so paranoid that they become a danger to themselves and those around them.
Depression is the second stage of bipolar disorder and is characterized by an abnormally low mood. Individuals may feel sad, hopeless, and worthless. They may lose interest in activities that they once enjoyed and have difficulty concentrating. Depression can be so severe that it interferes with an individual’s ability to work, eat, and sleep. Some may even have thoughts of suicide. Bipolar disorder is a serious mental illness that can be very debilitating. Therapy can also be helpful in teaching individuals how to cope with the symptoms of bipolar disorder. Schedule an appointment with our psychiatrists at Intend Wellness Psychiatry today!
