About Virtual Therapy

 

It works the same as therapy in the office:

  • We can address the same issues online as we can in the office,  Please note: I do not work with psychosis, active suicidal ideations or self harming via video. 

  • You can expect the same supportive connection with me as if we were meeting in my office.

There are several reasons that my clients want to meet online instead of in my office:

  • No or limited access to a provider in their community.

  • Don't have the time to travel to meet with a therapist. 

  • Feel more comfortable meeting with me online in their home than in an office.

  • Can meet with me at times convenient for them including weekends.

  • Don't have to get a babysitter.

  • Don't want to work with a therapist in their community for privacy reasons.

 

The process is very easy!

  • At the time of our session, you will simply click on the link that is emailed to you prior to the session. It's very easy and no technical skills are required.

  • I will see you enter the waiting room and start the session.

  • We will both be able to see and hear each other and interact as if we were in a traditional office.

  • It works on Chrome, Firefox, iOS or Android devices.

  • You can use any smart phone, computer or tablet with a camera and microphone. 

  • It is completely safe and private to meet via the secure video platform I use, but here is a list of things to consider about privacy. 

    • Make sure you are in a private location where you will not be overheard when we meet. ​

    • Turn off all devices using your internet while we meet so that maximum bandwidth is available to stream the video. Let others know to disconnect from the internet who may be in your home as well. 

    • Technology does occasionally fail, though it is rare. In the event that the internet goes down, I will call you and we can have the session via phone. 

    • I use a secure, HIPAA compliant video platform so you can feel secure in knowing every effort is made to protect your privacy.
