Online video sessions
As a MA licensed clinician, I offer virtual counseling appointments to clients located anywhere in MA on weekdays from 10 am to 6 pm. Each session is typically 45-50 minutes long. I collect the session fee at or before the time of each appointment.
Since I reserve your virtual counseling time exclusively for you, there is a charge for appointments missed or cancelled without 24 hours notice.
I accept self-pay and some health insurance plans. Health insurance reimburses only "medically necessary treatment" and requires that I submit a mental health diagnosis for you. Marital and couples counseling, which is typically focused on improving the quality of your relationship rather than treating a mental health disorder, is usually self-pay. Other clients may choose self-pay for privacy reasons if they are uncomfortable having a mental health diagnosis as part of their medical record.
I am in-network with the following insurance providers: Aetna, Allways, Blue Cross, Harvard Pilgrim, Optum, Tufts, and United (but I am not a Medicare provider for these plans).
Teletherapy may not be the most appropriate treatment approach in every circumstance. If I assess that a client would be better served by a clinician who can offer in-person office visits, I will ask that you contact your insurance provider to help you find a clinician who can offer that service.
