How does teletherapy work?
You can use any device with internet connection — your phone, tablet or computer. If you have ever used video call apps such as What’sApp, Skype or FaceTime the process is similar. The difference is that you do not need additional software just sign into the client portal. We use a HIPAA-compliant video that allows two way communication. The day of your appointment you just log in and select your appointment. It’s that simple!
Appointments are the same length as your in-person sessions and are scheduled in the same way, just select an online instead of in person office visit. Sessions must be conducted in a quiet, private space, without interruptions.
