Online Counseling Services
I use a HIPPA-compliant service called Telehealth by SimplePractice to meet with clients virtually. It’s easy to use and does not require you to login or download anything. Approximately 10 minutes before your appointment, you’ll receive an email appointment reminder with an embedded unique link. Open up our special link in your web browser and you’ll be ready to join the call! If you prefer to use a smartphone or tablet, there is a free app called Telehealth by SimplePractice (for iOS or Android) you can download as well!
-An Internet-connected computer, tablet, or smartphone
-Webcam or built-in camera on the device
-A comfortable place where you can talk in private without interruptions
Most likely! Since the COVID-19 pandemic, most insurance companies has allowed for telehealth services and even phone sessions. Online counseling, commonly referred to as ‘telehealth’, is being recognized as a reimbursed service through insurance providers. I am in-network with most major insurance companies and have not run into issues with services being denied.
If you are worried about coverage, please check with your individual insurance plan.
