Telemental Health or Teletherapy is the use of technology to conduct therapy face to face. The 50 minute sessions are provided through a video platform (HIPAA compliant–doxy.me) or through the phone. Licensed therapists 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, all ethical state guidelines are in place to ensure your privacy and safety.
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.
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.
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.
