About Alverdia Health
Your Psychiatry Health Center
Alverdia Health PLLC is a mental health practice that offers virtual telepsychiatry visits through a secured video conferencing. We offer a host of mental healthcare options to provide our patients with the best medical support available. Our administrative office are located in Boston, Massachusetts, Cambridge, Massachusetts, and Quincy, Massachusetts. Alverdia Health PLLC, more commonly known as Alverdia Health, is dedicated to taking on psychiatry with a fresh new outlook based in our “whole-person” approach.
At Alverdia Health, we believe that everyone is more than just a sum of their medical history. You have experiences, you have stories, and in one way or another, each one of those stories has helped you to become who you are.
Alverdia Health specializes in learning about those stories and finding your best path forward. In our experience, the best way to treat you or to complete your mental health checkup is to get to know you—all of you. We believe that through effective, personal care we can find the best path to treatment, and further personalize those options to fit your unique needs.
Our Story: What’s in a Name?
Founded by psychiatrist Catline Jacques, MD, Alverdia Health began as an idea between colleagues to create a mental health practice that was unique and culturally informed. After five years, Alverdia Health was established by Dr. Catline Jacques to make the dream of providing quality, human-centered psychiatry a reality.
During its inception, this new mental health practice was designed to feature ecotherapy at the core of its treatment. A fusion between “Al” which means “going” or “to go” in Dr. Jacques’s mother tongue of Haitian-Creole and “verdia” which means “green” in Latin, the name “Alverdia Health” was cleverly created to signify this special and effective “going green” approach to whole-personal health.
“I love green spaces, the outdoors, traveling and helping people… I hope to continue to help people find the support they need to do the things they love as well.”
Catline Jacques, MD, Founder
