My name is Michael. I am a Psychiatric and Primary Care Nurse Practitioner. I hold a Master’s degree in nursing, bachelor’s of science in nursing, bachelor’s of arts in psychology, a minor in Spanish- but struggled academically in middle school, and had to transfer high schools due to bullying. Becoming a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner has allowed me to integrate my passion for helping others with knowledge of both well known and newer medications. I aim to help my clients identify the right medication plan, unique for each individual, while minimizing side effects. Small adjustments can yield profound benefits.

Teletherapy Psychiatrists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Needham, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Needham listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
