Telemedicine is a convenient way to have therapy sessions from the comfort of your own home or office. It helps take the burden off and saves you time sitting in traffic or bad weather. If you get caught up in another appointment or can't get out of work on time we can do the session from wherever you are. If you can't get your teenager to a session or it is more comfortable for the child to stay at home we can have the session from a place they know and feel secure.
Telemedicine is approved by most insurance companies at the same reimbursement rate as an in office visit.
There is no software to download or passwords to remember. All you need is a smart phone or computer with a camera and audio source.
I utilize SimplePractice for our video chat appointments since it is HIPAA compliant and secure. Our conversations are protected with bank level encryption and security. I will send you a link to use for our sessions.
