Teletherapy

Orchids

Research confirms what the pandemic brought into clear focus: Therapy via telehealth holds the same healing power as face-to-face therapy. 

 

Not only is it equally effective, teletherapy is convenient and allows a unique level of flexibility, bringing your therapist directly to you.

Teletherapy FAQ 

How does it work?

All you need is access to a computer or device with video and audio capability. We give easy-to-follow instructions and when it's time for your appointment, you launch the session, and your therapist appears on screen.

Will insurance cover teletherapy?

Many, if not most, insurance policies cover telehealth. We will complete a verification of your insurance benefits prior to your first appointment, but we do recommend that you independently verify your coverage. 

 

Can I see a therapist in person and for teletherapy?

Yes! Therapists manage their schedules in different ways, but many offer clients the ability to flex back and forth between attending in person and remotely. 

What platform is used for sessions?

Zoom and Google Meet, both HIPAA compliant platforms, are used for teletherapy depending on therapist preference. Clients are informed during scheduling of the specifics of their teletherapy appointments including whether they will be over Zoom or Google Meet. 

What if the connection is lost or we have other technical problems?

Your therapist will create a plan with you in case there's a disruption, so you'll know exactly what to expect should this occur. A common plan is for the therapist to call the client if the connection isn't restored quickly, for example after a minute or so.
