Welcome to Blossom Health!

Blossom Health is a completely virtual practice that provides both medication management and psychotherapy to college and graduate students. Our providers are licensed in a number of states so that we can work with our students while at school or at home on breaks.

Our Blossom Health Providers are:

As a psychiatrist, Dr. Siperstein has extensive training in providing both medication management and psychotherapy.

2) Jennifer Rick LICSW: As a psychotherapist, Jen has extensive training and experience working with college/graduate students and young professionals. Her areas of expertise include treatment of neurodevelopmental and co-occurring disorders, including ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and anxiety disorders. She also enjoys working with those struggling with executive functioning concerns, academic and social challenges, and perfectionism. She primarily provides Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and works with young adults on social skills training.
