I provide psychological assessment and psychotherapy for children, adolescents, college students, adults, and families. I am a licensed psychologist in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (#10965). All clinical services are currently provided through telehealth (e.g., videoconferencing technology).
I have significant experience treating psychological problems including:
- Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Learning and school problems
- Interpersonal relationship problems
- Parenting problems
- Acculturative stress
- Stress related to social and cultural identity development
- Emotion dysregulation
- Traumatic stress
Psychotherapy with me is grounded in the process of evidence-based practice, meaning I integrate the best available psychological and behavioral health research and knowledge with your values, preferences, and context in order to provide you and/or your loved one with the best care. Work with me is skills-based and action-oriented. By the clients and families I have worked with, I’m often described as knowledgeable, validating, and helpful. My work is grounded in strategies and techniques from cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and multicultural psychology.
If you are interested in potentially working with me please contact me by email (jeffwiner [at] gmail [dot] com) and I am happy to set up an initial phone conversation. This initial phone intake is complimentary and a great way to determine if I may be a good match for the services you are seeking and your current needs. During the phone intake I’ll also provide further details about my practice, my current availability, fees, etc.
The frameworks of culturally responsive practice, cultural humility, intersectionality, and anti-racism have enormously shaped my work as a clinician, researcher, and social justice advocate. A contemporary understanding of intersectionality suggests that all individuals have membership in multiple social identity categories, some of which may have been historically marginalized (e.g., people of color, LGBTQ folks) and others, historically more privileged (e.g., male, high SES).
In all of my work I strive to integrate an understanding of intersectionality by acknowledging and acting upon the idea that culturally uninformed models of mental health treatment are insufficient for patients from all types of backgrounds and experiences.
Billing and Fees
I am an out-of-network provider and do not contract directly with any insurance companies. Upon request, I can provide a billing summary with diagnostic codes (i.e., superbill) that can be submitted to your insurance company for potential reimbursement. In my practice, a 50-min psychotherapy session is billed at $295. This fee is pro-rated for all other clinical activities.
Further general information about billing:
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost.
Under the current law, healthcare providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected costs of any non-emergency items or services. Your healthcare provider should give you will a Good Faith Estimate in writing and you can always request a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service. Make sure to save a copy of your Good Faith Estimate.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
