I've been providing telemental health services (online therapy) since 2017. I find that it makes me more accessible to my clients, and it's more convenient for you.
Online therapy allows you to continue to seek mental health treatment without risking exposure.
Maybe you don't live near a provider that specializes in DBT. Maybe you want to see someone who is more familiar with your diagnosis. Maybe you're moving soon and you don't want to establish treatment with one therapist just to have to start over again with another one. By choosing online treatment, you can see the right therapist for you from anywhere in the state.
Therapy is important. But it's probably not the only important thing you have going on in your life.
Online therapy means you don't have to sit in traffic, or drive long distances to see the right therapist. It also means that you can take less time away from your other responsibilities - work, childcare, school - while still getting the help you deserve.
Once your first session is booked, you'll get an email with a link to set up your online account through Simple Practice.
From there, you'll have access to everything you need: consent forms, payment info, scheduling, and secure messaging so you can communicate with me. You can also download an app to do it all from your smartphone.
Ten minutes before every appointment, you'll get an email with the link to the secure video session.
If you can reliably stream videos online (Netflix, Hulu, Youtube) or FaceTime, your internet connection is probably fast enough for online therapy.
You'll get a link to the session in your email. You can open it in an app on your smartphone, or in a browser on your computer. Any internet-capable device with a camera will do.
Great for privacy (and great for audio quality). With headphones, we'll be able to hear each other clearly.
You'll need a space that you can talk openly without worrying that you'll be overheard.
Your information will be stored in an encrypted database that is compliant with all federal and state healthcare privacy laws. The video feed that we use for our sessions is also encrypted, ensuring confidentiality & the protection of your information.
I use Simple Practice for our sessions. When you click on the "Online Scheduling" link on my website, it will take you to the user portal for my online office.
