Telemental Health or Teletherapy is the use of technology to conduct therapy face to face. While you are not meeting with me in the same room physically, you still gain access to therapeutic services in the same way. The 50 minute sessions are provided through a video platform (HIPAA compliant–doxy.me) or through the phone. Licensed therapists are allowed to practice in the state(s) in which they are licensed. I am currently certified in the states of Wisconsin and Illinois. As a Nationally Certified Counselor, I make sure that all ethical state guidelines are in place to ensure your privacy and safety.
With Telemental Health, there may be times when technology has a glitch or WiFi is having an issue. In the event that this occurs, we will always have a backup plan in place to ensure that your session occurs. During every session, I will ALWAYS be in a private location to protect your privacy at all times.
Similar to the traditional in-office psychotherapy, I use a HIPAA Compliant platform called Simple Practice. This platform is a protected location for informed consent paperwork, medical records, billing, and treatment plans for each session.
If at any time you are a harm to yourself or someone else, STOP and please call 911. This site is not intended, nor equipt to handle crisis situations.
