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 PTSD? Get A Personalized Treatment Plan
The treatments for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) have evolved over the years and continue to do so as our understanding of the disorder increases. While there is no one-size-fits-all approach to treating PTSD, there are a number of effective evidence-based treatments that can help. The most common and effective treatment for PTSD is cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT is a type of therapy that helps people to change their thinking patterns and behaviors. It can be done in individual or group settings, and it has been shown to be effective in treating PTSD.
One of the most common CBT techniques used to treat PTSD is exposure therapy. Exposure therapy involves gradually exposing the person to the thing that they are afraid of. This can be done in a safe and controlled environment, such as in a therapist’s office, or it can be done in real-life settings. Exposure therapy has been shown to be an effective treatment for PTSD.
