Phone Consultation for Prospective Patients (15 mins, free)

Phone Consultation

An initial conversation to better understand your situation and whether we will work together. On this call we will review your current state, prior medical history, a brief overview of my services, and options moving forward. If I do not think that my practice is the best fit for your needs, I am happy to provide referral alternatives.

Schedule Phone Consult

Intake Appointment or Consultation (75 mins, $525)

Initial Consultation

During this appointment, we will discuss your current symptoms and functioning, review your past history, and together develop a treatment plan that feels like a good fit.

If you have any prior experience with treatment, please bring a copy of your records or provide me with a release to speak with prior clinicians. If laboratory or other studies are indicated for comprehensive treatment, I will work with your primary care physician or obstetrician to ensure these are completed.

If this is a one-time consultation appointment, I will provide a detailed letter with treatment recommendations to your primary provider. Often, I provide these consultations to OB-GYN physicians whose patients have questions about medication safety during pregnancy and breastfeeding or questions about the course of a psychiatric condition in pregnancy.

Follow Up Services (25 or 50 mins, $200 or $300)

Psychotherapy +/- medication management (50 minutes)
This is a generally a weekly, recurring appointment where we can use a wide variety of psychotherapies to manage symptoms of emotional distress. If you have been my patient and are feeling stable, we can over time decrease the frequency of appointments. If medications are appropriate, we will discuss them during these visits.

Medication management only (25 or 50 minutes)
This appointment is for patients who are doing well on their medication and need a monthly check in for refills, minor changes, and support. Generally, you are also seeing a non-MD clinician for psychotherapy, and I will work collaboratively with that individual to ensure comprehensive care.

Group Therapy & Out-of-Office Services:

Group Services

The following services will soon be offered. These are available only after an initial appointment, which must be done in the office, and a discussion to determine if you meet the appropriate criteria for these services.

Out-of-Office:

  • In-Home psychotherapy and medication management (50 minutes plus my travel time)
  • Tele-Psychiatry appointment for psychotherapy and medication management (50 minutes)
  • Walking Psychotherapy: There is plenty of research on the benefits of exercise for mood and the mood enhancements effects of being outdoors and in nature. In these sessions, we will cover the same ground as we would during in-office sessions, but while walking in the neighborhood around the office.

Group Therapy: 

  • Group psychotherapy for pregnant women (focusing on issues of depression and anxiety that arise during this stressful time, how to cope with impaired sleep, and planning for the postpartum period)
  • Group psychotherapy for couples
  • Group Psychotherapy for Postpartum Moms (focusing on common issues like managing the challenges of breastfeeding, processing a difficult labor & delivery experience, and navigating the transition to parenthood)
