Partnership in Wellness MSW, LICSW
A deep healing and compassionate approach to recovering from compulsive eating, early mother loss, anxiety, and depression
Beth’s commitment is to empower clinicians to master clinical documentation so that pass audits are passed, time and money are saved, and anxiety is reduced – in a way that contributes to good clinical care.
Beth mastered documentation for psychotherapy when she worked as a clinical supervisor at a mental health clinic for 15 years. She spent thousands of hours supervising psychotherapists and interns; teaching them how to write effective documentation by linking it to good clinical practice. She was instrumental in developing the clinic’s first electronic documentation system that significantly reduced documentation time and errors. Prior to the implementation of this system, 65% of all clinician paperwork was returned to clinicians to be rewritten and corrected. Subsequent to this implementation the return rate was reduce to under 8%. Clinicians were able to add 3 – 5 clinical hours per week and the company saved thousands of dollars. Beth also has a private psychotherapy practice in Brookline, MA specializing in helping women heal from compulsive eating. An engaging speaker, Beth has presented Misery or Mastery; Documenting Medical Necessity to individuals, groups, clinics and nationally.

Many private practice therapists tend to be seasoned professionals who are unsure how to document the good work they provide. As a result, they can feel at the mercy of insurance companies, spending an enormous amount of time justifying treatment, fighting rejected insurance claims, preparing for audits and losing income. Paperwork can seem disconnected from being helpful to clients. Paradoxically, the more the practice of psychotherapy is scrutinized, the more important good record keeping becomes.
