Have you tried everything except medications to help yourself, but still feel rudderless navigating this journey we call life? Reached a crossroads, expected or not, that you realized you were not prepared for, or needed help with, without any clear guidance on how to process your emotions, and/or difficulty maintaining your composure, or contrarily, found yourself with consistent difficulties controlling your impulses? Someone I could help might recognize such issues in themselves, not know where to turn, but above all else, be willing to engage, participate, and work towards becoming the best version of themselves possible!

Many patients suffer for a prolonged period of time before arriving at the point of seeking help. I commend you on your resilience and insight, and look forward to working together towards healing and recovery. It is my top priority to create a welcoming and nonjudgmental therapeutic environment for you. Empathy, compassion and kindness are the core elements I strive to integrate into both pharmacotherapy (medication treatment) and psychotherapy (talk therapy).

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 Massachusetts, 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 Massachusetts 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.
