Telehealth (Video) Appointments


Telehealth Services

In response to the coronavirus pandemic, I want to make sure that people know that I am already set up and offer Telehealth (video) appointments as well as face-to-face appointments.  Currently, I am continuing meeting with clients (who aren’t sick or running a fever) at my office.  But for folk who want the convenience (or want to keep with social distancing measures), this means we can meet from wherever you are comfortable and have access to the Internet.

Thirty Minute Session During This Crisis  
Additionally, I am also adding 30 min coaching sessions for folk who want to connect by video conferencing and also have my usual 50-55 minute clinical hour sessions as well. 

The purpose of thirty minute sessions isn't to do deep work but to help re-establish calm, feeling more centered and a sense of personal control.  I have found that sometimes clients need just a short half-session to help them get unstuck and move forward.  They need something that interrupts the emotions the brain and body are producing by their perceptions of what is going on in the outside world.  I often tell a friend of mine,  "part of the brain doesn't know the difference between the past and the present."  Likewise, we can attach to the future as if it is happening now!  I just got back from grocery shopping with my wife and seeing the empty shelves can definitely trigger your imagination of the worst case scenario.      

I have experience and expertise in helping person to reboot from their anxiety and stress through a variety of easy to learn and use techniques.

While I have always offered this telehealth services, I am highlighting it now because some may feel the need to self-quarantine and still want to access counseling.

 Here are some of the benefits remote therapy:
  • The benefits of Telehealth are supported by research. Research has found that video therapy is as effective as in-person therapy. And thanks to a highly secure connection, our sessions will remain private.
  • Telehealth requires no special software or technical skills. All you need is a computer (with an integrated camera). Its as simple as that.  I provide a HIPPA compliant and secure program for video conferencing.
I am here to help you to meet your counseling goals, to support taking precautions, being prepared and learning how to release our emotional attachments to stress, anxiety or panic.

Take care, stay calm and stay well,
