Thank you for the privilege of caring for you, and trusting me with your care.
Through all of the changes caused by the pandemic, I have had to rely on Telehealth which has been very convenient for people; I have had a very positive response over the past few weeks. The pandemic has underscored the fact that many have to travel far distances to see me and even those that live nearby take considerable time to come in for an office visit.
I am continuing to try to improve your Telehealth experience by employing a high end secure portal/service. My goal is to get all using the patient portal service to check appointments, request medications, upload documents, and communicate with me.
As people have found it more convenient to have telemedicine visits, I have decided to only have a virtual office and will now see patients exclusively through Telehealth. I will no longer be operating out of my office in Amherst.
I will continue to provide quality care with a patient centered focus.
I thank you for your support and feedback, and I look forward to continuing with your care. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.

CARISSA J. KAJENSKI, APRN, PMHNP-BC
I recognize the importance of having a calm, peaceful, thoughtful filled life. It is difficult to navigate through hardships and stressors in life when you don't feel well and are unable to manage symptoms on your own. I strive to create strong and long-lasting bonds with each of my patients. It’s a privilege to serve the community by providing quality mental health care and responsible prescribing practices to help manage symptoms.
I am currently accepting new patients.
Exclusively offered through Telehealth. Contact your insurance company for coverage benefits.
Please use your patient portal to sign and upload forms online. Or, download and email.
Care Comes First
I received my degree from The University of Massachusetts - Lowell in 2014. I opened a small private practice, Summer 2017, to allow more thoughtful meaningful evaluation and follow up care assessment with my patients.
