Counseling / Therapy Services
Counseling services usually begin with a phone call or by chatting through email. Giving Debbie a brief explanation of your situation will help her determine if she’s skilled enough in that area to be of assistance to you. If you both decide that Debbie seems like a good fit, an appointment will be scheduled.
Online video therapy sessions utilizing Doxy.me, which is HIPAA compliant, is available. More and more insurance companies are seeing the need for this remote service and are payiing for it; Cigna and BCBS are two that I know of. Inquire with your insurance provider if this is something you are interested in doing. You can always access this service by paying my video-session rate of $65 per 55 min. session.
I encourage all clients to contact their insurance provider directly. I may be a provider in your network, as there are many companies that bill through larger ones that I am unaware of.
Here are some questions you can ask:
- Do I have a deductible? If so what is the amount?
- How much of my deductible has been met?
- What is the amount of my co-pay or coinsurance?
- If Debbie is not in your network ask: Do I have out-of-network benefits? If yes, what is the reimbursement process?
Insurance Companies I currently accept:
- Blue Cross Blue Shield
- ESI (EAP service)
- Harvard Pilgrim
- Pacific Care
- United Behavioral Health (UBH)
(I no longer accept BMC, Fallon, GIC, MassHealth (Medicaid), Network Health)
$135. per session. Sessions typically last 1.5 to 2 hours.

Debbie’s presentations are fun, informative and motivating. She has a way of inspiring her audiences with stories; some personal and moving, some cautionary in nature, but always encouraging and up-beat. Debbie is full of energy and loves to laugh. She has a way of connecting with her audience that is quite amazing. Debbie is articulate and easy to relate to.
