Getting Started

An initial appointment can be arranged by calling Debbie, Clinic Administrator, at (617) 863-7325.

At the initial appointment, you and Dr. Barnes will review your reasons for seeking treatment, prior history, and goals. He will screen for potential psychiatric and medical diagnoses, address any questions you might have about treatment within his practice, and with you, collaboratively develop a treatment plan.

If determined that your treatment plan will involve psychotherapy within Dr. Barnes’s practice, subsequent 60-minute psychotherapy appointments will focus upon your individual treatment needs, and may range in frequency from twice weekly to every two weeks.

For patients in Dr. Barnes’s psychotherapy practice who have psychiatric diagnoses requiring psychopharmacology, or pain conditions which require medication management, this component of treatment is integrated into the 60-minute psychotherapy appointment.
