I offer telehealth (also referred to as teletherapy) appointments, which are conducted via video through a HIPPA compliant secure program, and work with clients located anywhere in the state of North Carolina.
What is teletherapy?
Teletherapy is the use of live video conferencing to deliver mental health therapy services. It’s the same idea as FaceTime, Skype, and Zoom. However, with teletherapy, we use a HIPAA-compliant platform, which means our connection is safe and confidential. Of course, since the start of the pandemic, teletherapy has become a more desired way to connect with a therapist, but teletherapy has been around since the 1990s. Studies have shown that it is just as effective as in-person psychotherapy for treating mental health disorders.
What you need to engage in teletherapy:
- A computer or mobile device (a computer is preferred)
- Internet speed of at least 10Mbps
- Close all windows and turn off streaming on other devices in the house that may be using up a lot of bandwidth
