2 New Therapists: Our Therapy Practice is Growing!

Hello, Friends!

2 New Therapists in Therapy Practice
                   2 Additions to Therapy Practice!

Well…a lot has happened since this practice opened in 2019. We’ve weathered (continue to weather?) COVID, watched all of the therapy world move to seeing clients online (Lucky me – I was already here), and seen the rise of big businesses entering the therapy sphere, selling the personal information of clients and paying their clinicians peanuts (I won’t name anybody directly, but if you’ve listened to any podcast on earth, you’ve heard their advertising).

What a wacky time in the therapy world.

Personally, I also moved – twice – added a couple more states to my personal practice, and began coaching clinicians on how to build their own private practices, in addition to maintaining my own. It’s been interesting, scary, weird, frustrating, and invigorating.

I’ve come to expect that there will always be changes a’changing, and I can’t ever predict what’s going to happen, or even what I WANT to happen – I’ve just got to live my way into it.

So. Here’s one thing that I just lived my way into at the start of 2023. It was a long time coming, and I’m really pumped to see what happens with it next.

Awesomely, this humble solo therapy practice has EXPANDED to a sturdy team of three!

Here’s how we arrived here:

For the past couple of years I’ve felt that I need to be very careful about how many clients I see in order to provide the best of myself and my skill in the therapy room. I’ve maintained a waitlist and turned away clients as I tried to keep things manageable and provide the flexbility and attentiveness my clients deserve. Sometimes, I’ve still bit off more than I could chew, resulting in consequences to my own health and well-being that I’m not willing to sustain.

So, last year I began thinking about my options. If I invested more time in coaching (which I’m still keen to do), it wouldn’t solve the problem of how to provide services to the waitlist at the practice. I couldn’t take on more clients personally. So, I began to consider hiring on some clinicians. I wanted to have the right people on my team, that embodied the philosophy of the practice. And, somehow, things gelled together, the right people came to mind, and – they agreed to come on board!

So – I am so grateful to have Kasey D’Arcangelo and Skyler Dietzman on board as we move into new adventures as a GROUP practice!

Kasey and Skyler are lifelong helpers and naturally gifted clinicians (As I said, I pursued both of them when I made the call to expand the practice), and I cannot endorse their work enough. Please take the time to navigate to the Meet the Therapists section of our NEW website to learn about their backgrounds and specialties.

You can also learn about them on Psychology Today:

And! This means we have immediate openings for clients that are looking for our areas of specialty (again, check out our info on the Meet the Therapists page). We love serving Keene, New Hampshire (where the practice was born!), are excited to expand into Ocean City, New Jersey (where I grew up!) and Oakland Park, Florida (where Skyler is!). With Telehealth, though, the sky is the limit – we serve all of New Hampshire, New Jersey, and Florida online!

And just to add another plug here – have you taken the time to peruse the new website? It took years for me to hire a professional to give the site a facelift, but I thought bringing on our new therapists was the right time to pull the trigger. Admittedly, this new site is SO much more user-friendly. Please take a minute to comb through it if you haven’t already!

Please don’t hesitate to email any of us to learn more about the practice. We want to hear from you!

Onward and upward!

Take Good Care,


Useful Information

Some frequently asked questions and useful answers.

Online therapy works in the same way as in-office therapy, but is done online, similar to a Skype or FaceTime conversation. Clients are able to have sessions from home, work, or any other convenient location. We meet with clients using a HIPAA-compliant secure platform.

Online therapy allows you to work with us from the comfort of home, or any private location of your choosing. For some, the screen provides an added layer of comfort that makes the challenging work of being vulnerable in therapy a little easier.

Online therapy also creates the unique opportunity for you to work with us without the constraints of proximity! The practice was born in Keene, New Hampshire, but has since grown to service clients anywhere in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Vermont, New Jersey, Florida, and New Hampshire.

Online therapy is a great option for clients that travel for work, for college students that go home during the summertime and do not want a break in their sessions, and for anyone with a challenging or inconsistent day-to-day schedule. It is an excellent choice for clients seeking a therapist with a particular specialty that they are unable to find support for locally. Some of our clients report that online therapy makes the vulnerability element of therapy a bit less intimidating.

No. For some clients with more complex symptoms or safety concerns, having a local therapist that is readily available is important in case of crisis or the need for a higher level of care. Online therapy is also a challenge for clients that do not have access to a private, quiet space to be “in session” for the hour, or for those that do not have adequate internet connectivity.

There are several reasons why we don’t accept insurance. The most important are:

Confidentiality. Insurance companies require that your information be shared with them in order to pay for services. We prefer that clients’ information is kept as confidential as possible.

The pressure to diagnose. Insurance companies require that clients are given a mental health diagnosis in order to pay for therapy. We have found that many clients benefit from therapy, but do not meet criteria for a diagnosis. Not using insurance allows clients to access therapy without being given a mental health diagnosis.

Flexibility and freedom. Insurance companies dictate the length and number of sessions they will authorize, as well as when a client is no longer eligible for the benefits of therapy. Because we do not work with insurance panels, you and we can collaborate to determine your individual needs regarding session length, frequency of sessions, and when to terminate therapy.

While we do not accept insurance, many clients choose to submit receipts to their insurance companies to receive reimbursement via out-of-network benefits. We are happy to provide these receipts for you! Please check with your insurance company for details on your benefits.
