Tele-Counseling

I offer HIPAA compliant online video therapy for people I have met with face-to-face who can no longer make it to the office!

Why Virtual Behavioral Health?

Virtual behavioral health is about more than convenience – it is about getting members the care that they need when they need it, or the care they are afraid to seek in person due to social stigma. It helps address barriers to access, stigma, and time constraints typically associated with mental health services.

Virtual behavioral health can provide expanded access to services, more efficient delivery of services, and also potential cost savings. • Access to mental health care can be increased for all patients but especially for individuals with multiple chronic health conditions, those with severe illness and disability, and underserved populations in rural and remote areas. • Virtual visits can provide added comfort to patients who otherwise might be fearful and resistant to meet face-to-face in a clinic. • Counseling and intervention services can be delivered more quickly via teleconferencing sessions versus on-site appointments that may take longer to arrange. • Virtual visits are a cost-effective way to engage with patients and deliver care anywhere, anytime while reducing administrative costs for the provider and travel costs for the patient.   • Virtual behavioral health visits can be used to conduct psychiatric consultations to triage cases and help reduce emergency room visits and hospitalizations by diverting clients to less costly forms of care.

Are You Ready For Online Therapy?

  1. Do you have a laptop, desktop PC or Mac which is 3 years old or newer?
    Older devices may struggle to run the program properly.
  2. Is your space equipped with a modern internet connection that is reliable?
    Connecting directly to your router using an ethernet cable for wired internet is recommended though wireless networks can work fine as well.
  3. Have you downloaded Chrome or Firefox to your computer to use as your internet browser?
    Standard browsers such as Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge or Safari on a Mac may encounter compatibility issues with the video software as those browsers are not as up to date with modern code.
  4. Do you have access to a working webcam?
    Most modern laptops have built in webcams which will work great for online therapy! If you have a desktop PC or Mac you may need to purchase and set up an external webcam.
  5. Are you comfortable navigating computer software?
    The online portal is easy to navigate and does not require any training to use. However, those who find computers to be confusing or frustrating in general may not be a good fit for online therapy.
  6. I recommend that you choose a location that’s private and away from any distractions to have your virtual session.

  7. Be sure to refer to your plan’s Summary of Benefits or call the Member Service number on your member ID card to confirm coverage details and cost-sharing.
