Televideo & Distance Counseling

“Words of comfort, skillfully administered, are the oldest therapy known to man.”
– Louis Nizer –

I use a secure, HIPAA-compliant online platform for telehealth services.  You can call, email or text me if you wish to schedule a first appointment.  Additionally, true to the online platform that is telehealth, you can also register as a new client and self-schedule your first appointment here.  Once registered and scheduled, you will receive a link to use when it is time for our meeting.  The link will take you to a private virtual room where you and I will hold our session.  Whether at home, in your car, or in a private work-space, you can participate in counseling without having to travel or risk exposure to your environment.

Even pre-pandemic there was convincing research showing the many benefits of telehealth.  If the thought of meeting online feels impersonal or makes you nervous, I encourage you to give it a try.  I’ve not had a single client who was initially skeptical about it try telehealth and then either not wish to continue all sessions online if not simply experiencing a fundamental change in thinking about it.  Telehealth offers the same benefits as traditional in-person counseling but with the added benefit of convenience and safety.  Please note that insurance companies cover telehealth services just the same as face-to-face counseling.  And many are even waiving copays and coinsurances as an incentive to manage the current pandemic.

I hear a lot of talk about when things will “get back to normal again.”  I’ve also witnessed hundreds of colleagues close their primary on-site practice in lieu of transitioning exclusively to telehealth.  Like it or not, I believe telehealth is here to stay.  I will continue to meet with clients in person if that is their preference and as long as it is safe to do so, but it is important to consider telehealth as here for good.  A convenient and effective way to address what brings you to counseling.
