thrown off balance by unpleasant emotions or stressful life situations?


At some point  in everyone's life, stressful situations happen.  If you find yourself in such a situation, you are not alone. Sometimes it helps to talk with a compassionate, competent and nonjudgmental professional.


The therapist/psychiatrist you talk with should be reachable at all times.  Current clients can call or text Dr. Spellman 24/7 and get a reasonably prompt response.  As an experienced psychotherapist (who is also a Board Certified Psychiatrist) she is really there for people.


Dr. Spellman is  dedicated to safeguarding your privacy and confidentiality.  Because with the new insurance laws a multitude of people and agencies now have access to your electronic medical records, Dr. Spellman uses paper only files that no one sees because she has no employees or staff.


You should not have to sacrifice your privacy and your future job security just because you are going through a stressful situation. You may think your insurance “covers” your mental health needs, but does it really cover you?.  For a modest fee, you can get real healing - instead of just help getting through the day - and no one has to know about it.


Tempting as it may be to use your insurance, you may know that psychiatrists (and all mental health providers) who accept your insurance must label you with a mental illness in order to ensure payment.  And most are required to transition to electronic medical records. Since Dr. Spellman has chosen to remain independent of (and not directly bill) insurance companies, you can protect your privacy from the changing insurance environment and its intrusive database.  Plus, you may be surprised to find that your insurance has such a high deductible that you will end up paying anyway - for less than optimum care from providers who "accept" your insurance.  However, if you wish, Dr. Spellman will give you an insurance form to send in for your insurance to reimburse you whatever you out-of-network benefits cover.
