My 15 years of experience enables me to offer effective outpatient, individualized, psychiatric care including diagnosis, evaluation and medication management. In addition to PTSD and ADHD specialties, I treat all general concurrent mental health disorders. I diagnose, evaluate and prescribe psychotropic medications, working closely with you to find the best, most effective treatment options.
ADHD is our primary specialty. We also treat general psychiatric/ mental health conditions. Our focus is to realize your resilience, energize, and further develop your innate, inner strengths. We achieve this by pretty much doing WHATEVER IT TAKES to meet your needs.
We promise to be there for you every step of your journey. Whether that is in our office location in South Hadley or in your home via computer for telepsychiatry, our goal is to help you in every possible way. Please visit rachelthomas.clientsecure.me to schedule an appointment.
CURRENTLY WE ARE ONLY OFFERING TELEPSYCHIATRY VISITS.
Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through treatment, we are able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life.
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger on following traumatic events. We can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing.
Many children and adults experience difficulty with attention and concentration caused by ADHD or ailments caused by trauma PTSD which are often mis-or underdiagnosed. We specialize in treating these conditions and can help you take charge and reach your personal goals at your optimal potential.

Do you accept insurance?
I do not accept insurance. However, patients are oftentimes reimbursed for much, if not all, of their visit costs. All necessary forms for insurance reimbursement are available through the secure patient portal. Please ask your insurance carrier for details regarding reimbursement options and the process.
Are you taking new patients?
At this time, I am accepting very few patients and only patients with ADHD concerns and other concurrent issues. New patients are accommodated within a few weeks of requesting a new patient appointment.
CREDIT CARD AND PATIENT REGISTRATION
I need to add a credit card to register as a new patient and request an appointment? Will I be charged?
Valid credit or debit cards are required to register and request an appointment. You will not be charged until 24 hours prior to your appointment time.
APPOINTMENT REQUEST PROCESS
I just requested an appointment. What happens now?
After registering on the secure patient portal as a new patient and requesting an appointment time, your appointment will be confirmed, and you will receive an email notification as well as a link to the online portal to complete necessary documents, evaluations and assessments before your first appointment.
