Rachel Barbanel-Fried, Psy-D
"The world is round and the place which may seem like the end may also be only the beginning."
-- Ivy Baker
Getting started is as easy as picking up the phone and calling me. You’ll leave me a confidential message and I’ll call you back to answer any questions that you might have to set up a time to meet. The first three to four sessions are an evaluation period during which time we will figure out if we are a good fit for each other.
I encourage you to see this as a time with no strings attached, to learn more about me and to see if you feel comfortable working with me. It is extremely important that you feel comfortable with the therapist you choose.
Hours are by appointment only.
Once we’ve established a time to meet you can access the necessary forms to fill out prior to our first meeting. If you cannot download and print the forms from your computer to bring to our initial meeting, I will be happy to provide them to you.
All forms are password protected PDFs and require Adobe Acrobat Reader for viewing :

Please note, email is not a confidential form of communication, nor is it an appropriate medium for urgent or emergency messages. Email or phone contact with Dr. Rachel Barbanel-Fried does not constitute a psychotherapeutic relationship. In case of emergency, call your local emergency response services.
