Telehealth/online counseling$140 per 50-minute session
Telehealth (or in our case, telecounseling or telemental health) is rapidly growing for a reason–we’re all busy people, and who wouldn’t jump at the chance to make life just a little less hectic? Telehealth allows you to get professional counseling from the convenience of your home or office—no commute time, stressful traffic, or PTO used. We work together online versus in a physical office, and I provide secure video or phone sessions. It’s a great option for people who are busy, have difficulty leaving the house, or have limited local options.
Video sessions most closely resemble face-to-face counseling. I utilize a secure, HIPAA-compliant platform to conduct video sessions that you can participate in from your computer or smartphone. Phone sessions are a great option for people who aren’t quite ready for or comfortable with video or for anyone who doesn’t have a reliable internet connection.
My experience with clients via telehealth has been remarkable. Years ago, I was a skeptic–how can you connect with someone having never met them in person? I started seeing telehealth clients somewhat reluctantly but absolutely love the practice now. I’ve seen so many clients make significant, lasting changes and I wholeheartedly believe telehealth can be as effective as face-to-face sessions. Like many things in life, it all comes down to how much work you’re willing to put in. That said, telehealth is not appropriate for all cases. Telehealth is not an appropriate forum for clients who are actively suicidal or require close medical monitoring.
Please note: Online counseling is not appropriate if you are actively suicidal. If you are actively suicidal, please contact 911 or present to your nearest emergency room.
