We offer the service of Online Therapy or Teletherapy which is the use of technology to have a therapy session. We use Thera-LINK, a secure HIPAA compliant platform that uses video and audio technology through a webcam on your device and the therapist’s device to connect securely.
Thera-LINK uses encrypted data streams (AES-256) for the video sessions. Any data that is stored outside of the video sessions is encrypted and meets or exceeds all HIPAA and HITECH guidelines to ensure your confidentiality. Most insurance plans now cover teletherapy sessions in the same way that they cover office therapy sessions.
The benefits of teletherapy include the convenience of location, time and accessibility which allows for better continuity of care. During the COVID-19 pandemic, all of our psychotherapy sessions will be conducted online through teletherapy. When the restrictions due to the pandemic are lifted, we will continue to offer teletherapy services to all who would like to continue using this service.
Your therapist will explain to you how to use Thera-LINK and show you how to set up an account with us so that you will be able to have secure videoconferencing sessions through your device such as a computer, tablet or smart phone.
If you have any questions or would like to set up a first appointment, please call us at 609-921-6070.
