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.

To request a new patient appointment for adult individual or couple therapy, please email 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?

This problem 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!
