Does anyone have any comments or recommendations for any of these people in Northampton, MA? I don't know what their professional credentials are (Doctor, therapist, coach, etc). When I asked about ADD diagnoisis, this is the list my HMO gave me:

I've cross-posted this in the Counseling/Therapy list. Please post replies here.

Well they are not coaches because coaches can not diagnose and ADD Coaching is not covered by ins. Does your HMO have a website? If so you should be able to search for more info about the professionals there.

Tara,
Well, last time I was there I didn't think much of their site. I'll try it again, though. Thanks for the suggestion.

Margaret Barry = Licensed Social Worker.

Jill Marland = Licensed Social Worker.

Robert Brandt = Psychologist.

Robert Harris is definitely not a psychiatrist or psychologist. I canít find any other info on him.

Thanks Penultimate, I did some more checking around... Robert Harris also seems to be a licensed social worker. I did find that out on my HMO's site (Good suggestion, Tara!) in an area I had overlooked.

If no one posts any recommendations, here, what's my next step? Is it appropriate to call these people up and ask for references?
