About Me

We’re all human, and critical to our being human is that we need someone to talk to. We need someone who not only listens without judgment, but also someone who can tune in to what we’re really saying, and can help us understand and connect the dots.  We get to the root causes, as well as to the present problems, and loop back and forth, so it makes sense to you.  But primarily, we deal with the present dilemmas, to help you understand and develop new ways to handle and resolve them.

I also do both phone and video counseling.

I accept Tufts, Optum/UBH, and BCBS. I also accept out-of-network insurance. My out-of-pocket fee is $130-150. Do contact me at 617-499-1950, and we will set up a complementary phone consult to see whether it is a good match. I look forward to talking with you.  – Barb Ferullo, LMHC
