TeleMental health means the remote delivering of health care services via technology-assisted media. This includes a wide array of clinical services and various forms of technology. The technology includes but is not limited to, a telephone, video, internet, a smartphone, tablet, PC desktop system or other electronic means. The delivery method must be secured by two way encryption to be considered secure. Synchronous (at the same time) secure video chatting is the preferred method of service delivery.
Structure and Cost of Sessions
I offer face-to-face psychotherapy when appropriate and available. However, based on your ability to make in-person sessions and my availability, I may provide virtual psychotherapy if your treatment needs determine that TeleMental health services are appropriate for you. If appropriate, you may engage in either face-to-face sessions, TeleMental health, or both. We will discuss what is best for you.
The structure and cost of TeleMental health sessions are exactly the same as face-to-face sessions. For private pay clients, I require a credit card ahead of time for TeleMental health therapy for ease of billing and your credit card will be charged at the conclusion of each TeleMental health interaction.
