During a visit to Florence Italy we met with a local psychotherapist, Dr. Paolo Molino. It was very interesting to get his views on mental health and the stigma surrounding seeking treatment in Italy.
We discussed his use of Gestalt Psychology, EMDR, emotional clearing for him in between client visits, and how mental illness is viewed in Italy. Paolo is fluent in English, French, and Italian which allows him to work with travelers, expats, and students.

This morning we have the pleasure of interviewing Eileen Casella-Rider, LMHC. Eileen has her masters degree in counseling psychology from Antioch University. She has unique experience in the field of mental health working in both private practice and as a program director, clinician, and EHR advisor for mental health organizations. She has also provided training, sales, support, and clinical documentation expertise in the behavioral health electronic health record industry.
Eileen gravitated to the technical and software side of psychology during her times spent as a clinician. This unique vantage point gives her the perspective behavioral and mental health providers and organizations need to determine which EHRs to take seriously.
It isn’t just about the software!
This candid discussion about the behavioral health EHR industry is refreshing, open, and a must listen for any organization looking for the facts when it comes to EHR purchase and adoption.
Let’s open Pandora’s Box shall we?
Questions for Eileen? More information?
