Distance counseling, or remote therapy, uses various technologies to assist in providing counseling in an arrangement where the therapist and client are in different locations. Online counseling can be done securely, confidentially, and effectively. As a Board Certified-TeleMental Health Provider, I have received specific training in the use of technology to deliver counseling services.
I am a 100% remote practice. I use a HIPAA-compliant, HITRUST certified video chat service through my practice platform, SimplePractice. You can use any computer, phone, or tablet to access our meeting room. You will be emailed a unique link prior to each session that you can click to join our room. Prior to beginning distance counseling, we will review benefits and limitations of technology assisted counseling, confidentiality, and emergency procedures.
