Online therapy or Telehealth is becoming more and more popular in today's world. It allows you to access the support of therapy without leaving your home or office. I currently offer only Telehealth appointments due to COVID 19. I do plan to offer in person therapy again to Maine clients, likely after Summer 2021. I will continue to provide Telehealth to Minnesota clients and other clients who may prefer and be clinically appropriate for Telehealth services.
Telehealth may be a good fit for you if you:
Have a busy or irregular work schedule
Struggle with transportation
Have trouble finding regular childcare support during session times
May be dealing with physical issues or illness
Live in a rural or remote area
Want therapy support while on vacation
An online session is much like a Facetime or Skype call. I use a free, HIPAA compliant software called Doxy.me for my online sessions. It's easy to access and all you need for sessions is an internet connection, laptop or computer with webcam and a private space.
Not all insurance covers online therapy, so if you are interested check with your provider to see if it is a covered service. If not, you have the option to pay out of pocket.
I offer a free 15 minute "trial" so you can see what online therapy is like if you've never tried it.
Research suggests that Telehealth sessions are just as beneficial as in person and though it is not for everyone, many clients have had high success with Telehealth support. I am able to provide individual, couples therapy and brainspotting via Telehealth.
