Help is available at your time and place.
Telehealth video therapy sessions are a convenient & secure way to provide the same evidence-based, quality therapy services that you’re used to getting in-person in the comfort of your own setting. In order to ensure that my clients receive the highest quality services, I obtained the Board Certified-Telemental Health Provider credential from the Center for Credentialing & Education.
Many people initially struggle with the idea of doing therapy via telehealth, but research indicates that clients notice the same level of improvement in comparison to face-to-face sessions. Telehealth itself has been around since the early 1950s, is widely used and researched by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs and has helped to provide high-quality services to clients who often struggle to obtain necessary care.
Video sessions require no download and are conducted using a HIPAA secure platform that respects your confidentiality and is easy to navigate. If you have any questions about telehealth, please feel free to reach out. I’m happy to answer any questions that you may have.
Reasons telehealth may be a good fit for you:
including access, costs for transit and/or parking, vehicle dependability
available when you are available—even often during lunch hour
including childcare, partner care, elderly care, and care due to illness
including physical limitations, mental health limitations
asking for time off work can be a challenge
therapy is delivered in the comfort of your home—when and where you need it
weather is either unpredictable—who wants to commute
no waiting room encounters
ideal for victims of intimate partner violence or other safety concerns
When telehealth is not appropriate
Despite the benefits of utilizing telehealth, there are certain situations when tele-health may not be appropriate, these include:
- Complex mental health diagnoses; i.e., impairing visual and/or auditory hallucinations, active substance use, recent suicidal or homicidal thoughts
- Those 13 years old or younger
- Those with a poor internet connection or a lack of access to technology
Shifting the therapy office to a clients space makes therapy portable, accessible, confidential, and comfortable. In turn, clients often report feeling more at ease, less stressed, and more apt to open up and, in turn, therapy can be more effective. The benefits far outweigh any concerns for most clients, as accessibility to care drastically increases and cancellations drastically decrease. Therapy is delivered when and where you need it the most.
