If you live in the state of California or Missouri, I offer HIPAA compliant distance therapy (i.e. teletherapy, online therapy, video therapy, phone therapy) in an effort to reach a wider range of people in various locations and across distances.
My secured online platform is easy to use and completely confidential. The best part is that you can do this from the comfort and privacy of your own home or office, or even when you are out of town. No need to spend extra time driving to and from an office, securing a babysitter, take a longer lunch to make a therapy session, and now risking exposure to COVID-19.
Teletherapy, also known as telehealth, distance counseling, e-counseling, or online therapy, has evolved over the years as the therapeutic world has embraced the digital age. Through audio and video over the internet, you can meet with me on-the-go from your desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile device (iOS or Android) - it’s your choice!
Therapy sessions are held on a secured web-based platform that is HIPPA compliant to ensure your confidentiality while you are in the comfort of your own surroundings. Teletherapy is a wonderful option for those that have limited “spare time” to travel to appointments, have children at home, or who are home-bound due to weather, illness, or mobility challenges. You can connect from anywhere to save you time and hassle.
*While teletherapy can be a great option for many clients, it may not be appropriate for everyone or for all issues. For this reason, all clients are scheduled for an initial consultation session so we can work together to determine the best modality for your therapeutic needs.
