Online therapy, or telemental health, addresses the difficulties with schedules, time in the car to get to and from your appointment during high volume congestion, and adds the convenience of being comfortable in your own setting with the security of confidentiality. Research is showing that telehealth can be as beneficial as in office sessions when clients are seeking assistance for mental health disorders, problem solving, relationship and family issues.
I use Zoom and VSee through Secure Video, a HIPPA compliant video platform used by medical communities to insure your privacy and clarity of service via computer, tablet or even your cell phone.( https://hub.securevideo.com/Listing/Details/46903 ). Telehealth follows the same rules for licensed therapists practicing in any state. I am licensed in and available to see clients in Washington and Hawaii States. I work with many military clients and am available for sessions internationally. The fee for these sessions is my regular session fee at $100 per hour for individuals. I am in network for United Health Care and some of their covered plans offer telehealth services, although many insurances do not. Before utilizing insurance, check your plan.
If you would like to schedule a telehealth appointment, please email therapist at e[email protected] to receive a detailed form on online therapy policies and documents for signature.
