Telehealth therapy offers flexibility in scheduling for many people. Telehealth therapy services are available to anyone 18 years or older. Sessions conducted online are provided through a secure, HIPAA compliant platform through TherapyNotes. They are available to individuals located anywhere within the state of Tennessee at the time of the session. I am not licensed to practice in any other states.
Other benefits to online therapy include:
No commute. In our growing communities it is not uncommon for the commute to an appointment to take longer than the actual appointment. Online therapy eliminates the traffic jam and stress of getting to an office appointment.
Sick kiddos or our own sick days come up unexpectedly. Online therapy can help you keep your appointments and making progress toward your treatment goals.
Online therapy can be invaluable to client’s with physical limitations, transportation limitations and financial limitations by saving fuel expenses.
You have greater access to therapist expertise that meets your needs. Maybe you live in a community that doesn’t have a local therapist that quite fits what you are looking for in a provider. Online therapy can open up your provider options to help you find the therapist that is the best fit for you.
You must have high speed and reliable internet connection for video chat. Even then, technology does sometimes fail and this can impact the flow of conversation.
We will discuss what happens when technology fails during a session. Once you become a client, you will be sent information and a link for my secure client portal.
Online therapy is also not appropriate for people who are actively suicidal or if you are a danger to yourself or someone else.
