Telehealth

Person at a computer deskWe offer a convenient way to access mental health services using telehealth. This is an innovative and efficient way to attend appointments with one of our providers from the comfort of your home, office, or any other private location. It's as easy as clicking a link on your computer screen or device!

During your initial assessment, your therapist will speak with you about telehealth to determine whether it is a good fit for you. Your therapist will review the telehealth consent form with you, and answer any questions you may have.

Zoom

We currently use a HIPAA-compliant Zoom environment for telehealth sessions. This easy-to-use technology is available using a computer, and also offers feature-rich mobile apps for iOS and Android.

Internet access and a webcam/microphone-supported device (smartphone, tablet, computer, etc.) are required to participate.
