Telehealth during COVID-19

Do you need support while you are at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic? Are you wondering how you can attend a therapy session via video while your kids are at home? Let’s talk, because I have some potential solutions for keeping the kids occupied while you carve out time for some much-needed self-care.

I offer a secure, HIPAA-compliant platform for video calls that is easy to use. If you want to attend a video session on your computer, there is nothing to download, as the session is web-based. If you would like to use your smartphone, you can download the Telehealth by SimplePractice app for free. Ten minutes before our scheduled session, you will receive an automated email reminder with a link to attend our session.

What is telehealth? Telehealth allows the facilitation of health-related services to patients via live video conferencing. Thanks to modern technology, just about everyone in the U.S. has a smart phone, computer or tablet capable of video chat. This ease of access to make video calls has revolutionized the healthcare industry, allowing doctors, nurses, and mental health professionals to interact with patients through a convenient video call. Research has shown that telehealth sessions for psychotherapy are equivalent to face-to-face sessions in terms of client outcomes and satisfaction.

Telehealth appointments can be very beneficial if getting to a traditional in-person appointment is not possible. Telehealth appointments can help by removing the need to leave your home to attend an appointment.

The convenience of scheduling an appointment through a phone app or computer cannot be understated. Contact me to pick a date and time, and you’ve scheduled your online appointment. There’s no need to get ready, or even leave your bed or couch. If you have social anxiety or phobias that cause you to avoid social interactions, telehealth makes it even easier for you to get treatment.

You can reach out to me today to get started with telehealth therapy sessions.
