Similar to the traditional in-office psychotherapy, I use a HIPAA Compliant platforms such as Simple Practice and Doxy.me. This platform is a protected location for informed consent paperwork, medical records, billing, and treatment plans for each session.
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) Licensed therapists are to practice in the state(s) in which they are licensed. I am currently certified in the states of Wisconsin and Illinois. As a Board Certified Telemental Health Specialist, 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.
