Meet the Eleanor Health Worcester, MA Clinical Team!
March 22, 2021
My name is Brookeita Payne and I’ve joined Eleanor Health as the Lead Clinician in Worcester, MA. I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker. I have had the pleasure of working in the field of Mental Health & Substance Use Disorder for several years. It has been a privilege to work in various clinical settings and in various roles from case management to clinician to clinical supervisor. Over the years I have worked with children, adolescents, adults, families, and collaborated with many community organizations. I’m excited to be a part of a team providing whole-person care and meeting our community members where they are at. If there is one thing I have learned throughout my years of experience, it is that tough times don’t last, tough people do! I take pride in being able to participate in the recovery journey of our community members and will do my part to provide the best service for our members and Eleanor Health team. When I am not serving our community, my time and attention are best spent focusing on my daughter and helping her grow as a young entrepreneur.
I’m excited to introduce you to the rest of our Eleanor Health Worcester clinical care team!

Jeff Kaplan, Community Recovery Partner
My name is Jeff Kaplan and I’ve joined Eleanor Health as the Community Recovery Partner for the Worcester County Area. I have worked in the mental health and addiction services field for 2 years. I was drawn to the field from my own personal experiences and knew that once I felt able to give back, I would. What led me to Eleanor was our view of meeting members where they are at in their recovery journey and our commitment to helping members live amazing lives! Outside of my professional life, I enjoy watching sports, hiking, and spending time with family.
