I specialize in working with children ages 2-8 and their parents or caregivers.  I use an eclectic blend of models based on the needs of the client.  These include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Social Thinking
  • Solution-Focused Therapy
  • Psychoeducation

I view my job as that of a “coach” who teaches children and their family members the necessary skills to improve their lives.  These include:

  • social skills
  • emotion regulation skills
  • helpful thinking skills
  • problem solving skills
  • coping and stress reduction skills
  • communication skills
  • behavior management/positive parenting skills

I am in the office on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.  Appointments generally last 45 minutes.

I am currently able to accept most plans from Blue Cross Blue Shield, Tufts (commercial plans only), Health Plans Inc., and Optum (Harvard Pilgrim, United Healthcare, and UBH).  To verify that I am “in network” and that your visits will be covered by insurance, you may call the customer service number on your insurance card.  My NPI# is 1245545078 (which the insurance company can use to see if I am a covered provider).

I also accept self-pay.  My 2018 rates are as follows:

  • $130 for the intake appointment
  • $100 for each subsequent appointment
  • $25-$50 for phone consultations (for parents, other providers, or school personnel of current clients only)
  • $120+ for on-site consultations (for current clients or schools/daycare centers)
  • Sliding scale fees may be arranged if needed

Payments can  be made in cash, check, Health Savings and Flex Spending account cards (HSA/FSA) as well as MC/VISA/Amex/Discover.
