What is online counseling?
Online therapy, also known as telehealth, is done on an online video conferencing platform that is HIPPA compliant, confidential and allow us to connect on our electronic devices with both audio and video. This technology allows clients to see their providers from a distanceby using a secure, internet-based, video conferencing platform that works on mobile phones, tablets, laptops, and desktops. It is a simple way to connect through a link for both the client and the therapist. When you schedule your appointment, you will get a reminder sent directly to your email or phone with a link which takes you directly to our virtual waiting room. I will meet you there for our session. There are many benefits to this type of therapy service.
