Cynthia Spellman, MD
We are wired to feel emotions as signals alerting us to what we need and value. When we lose touch with or come to mistrust our emotions, beliefs, and values, we sometimes feel stuck, confused, or even overwhelmed. Dr. Spellman creates a safe, warm, and supportive space where you can make things right again. Dr. Spellman personally provides individual psychotherapy and marriage counseling and can include medication management within your regular sessions at no extra cost. People who are already working with another therapist - and who feel medication may help - can come to see Dr. Spellman for medication management only. She collaborates closely with the referring therapist so that great care is provided in a true team effort. Privacy and confidentiality are highly safeguarded and fees are based on a sliding scale.
If you would like to know how all this can help you please contact Dr. Spellman today to speak with her personally.
- Studies show that people who receive their medication and psychotherapy from the same psychiatrist require fewer sessions and have less total cost then people who split their treatment between a non-MD therapist and a psychiatrist.
- Besides cost effectiveness, there are many advantages to receiving therapy and medication from the same person who comes to know you quite well and takes great satisfaction in watching you move forward in your life as you feel much better much sooner.
- Privacy and confidentiality are highly safeguarded and no one will know of your visits unless you tell them. Additionally, if you choose not to submit an insurance claim, there are no records other than those handwritten by Dr. Spellman and locked in her file cabinet. The office is located in an executive suite where everyone can remain anonymous.
