Musings on mental health from our therapists.

Trusting My Clients to Do The Hard Work

Ah, Autumn. It’s clearly the very best season – all crisp and cool and tweed-y. And come on, we all know that all of the best of food and fashion emerges in October.  It’s also the season when, in the therapy room, a distinct tone of nihilism starts to emerge…

How We Treat Ourselves Informs How We Treat Others

Despite some efforts on my part, I’ve been working more. Like, much more. This is partially exciting, as I’m starting up a whole new work venture (Learn about it here and here!!) and it brings me a lot of joy and meaning. And, of course, it’s a colossal amount of…

It Takes A Long Time

“It doesn’t happen all at once. You become. It takes a long time.”  –The Velveteen Rabbit I started going to the therapy as a teenager, for issues with Anxiety and Panic. I was terrified of being trapped places, and I feared my own body, which sometimes had unpredictable physical symptoms…

Ten Human Truths

I turned forty this year. The number has a decidedly permissive flavor to it.  I’ve never really been interested in doing things in a particularly conventional manner, but I’d be lying if I said that others’ opinions haven’t mattered a lot to me at certain points in my life. In…

Mayflower society

Yesterday I was a friend’s house helping her sort through clothing to purge in a move, and we came upon a t-shirt that read “Make Time For Fun”. The sentiment percolated throughout the day and sparked a (not wholly original) thought: We don’t buy t-shirts that say “Make time for…

Alone, Alive, & Impatient.

A somewhat personal story… Several months ago my husband and I pulled off a rather miraculous feat and paid off the last of my student loans, taking us fully out of debt, aside from our home mortgage. This was not an accident; it was the result of a years-long, tedious,…

It’s A Match!

I was recently doing an online training by Judith Matz (she’s good – if you treat eating issues, she’s one to check out), and she kept using a simple little phrase that I just loved. When describing the process of attuned eating, she introduced the concept of the Good Match.…

Tiny Beautiful Things.

It is nearing mid-May, which seems bizarre, since I think it was just March five minutes ago. Time feels different in the time of coronavirus; days blend together in a way and fall on top of one another rather quickly, though I’ve heard that for some individuals that are caretakers,…

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.
