New Patient Requests

Patricia Wakefield, LCSW (PA, CA, FL), LICSW (MA), LMSW (MI)

I only work with adult patients (18+ years old) who have accounts with an Amwell-powered telemedicine platform. Check our list of Amwell-contracted health plans or call your health plan directly. Make sure you verify your benefits, co-plays, and deductibles. All fees are determined by Amwell.

Because of licensing laws, patients must be located in PA, CA, FL, MA, or MI at appointment time.

If you are unable to schedule through the Amwell-powered telemedicine platform, you may request a new patient appointment for adult individual or couple therapy by emailing me at info AT patriciawakefieldtherapy DOT com with a simple message (“Hello, I’d like an appointment.”) I make every effort to respond within 24 hours.


Frequently Asked Questions About New Patient Scheduling

I can see your profile and available appointments on my Amwell-powered telemedicine platform, but the system will not allow me to book a visit. Why is this happening?

You may get a popup message that I am only seeing existing patients or not accepting new patients. This occurs when the provider has closed their calendar to public view to prevent overbooking or because their caseload is full.

If I experience this problem, can I still get a new patient appointment with you?

Yes. You are welcome to request an appointment!
