Online Counseling and Telehealth Therapy Services
Online counseling services are effective, safe, and convienient
Health and Healing Therapy has been providing online counseling services, sometimes called tele-mental health services, or tele-healthcare, since March, 2020. We have found it to be effective, easy, and safe. Many people enjoy the simple access, no commute time, flexibility, and ease of connecting with us for therapy sessions while in the comfort and safety of their own home or office.
We welcome the opportunity to support you and/or your family through this unique and accessible way to provide mental health care.
If you are wondering if online-counseling or tele-health sessions are right for you, we encourage you to consider the following:
Telehealth therapy and counseling is effective and safe.
Research has shown that online counseling / tele-mental healthcare is as effective as in-person counseling sessions. In addition, because of what is happening with COVID-19, online therapy is the safest option for both clients and staff.
How we connect for online counseling sessions:
We can meet with you via your desktop, laptop, tablet, or cell phone. All you need is an internet connection and a working camera on your device. If you do choose to use your cell phone or tablet, there is an application you need to download – we will walk you through the steps of how to access and utilize it.
If you don’t have access to have a online device and/or lack an internet connection, we can instead have telephone counseling sessions. Phone sessions are also available if you are more comfortable with and prefer not incorporating the video option. We will work with you to develop a modality of therapy that feels most comfortable for you.
Concerned about Privacy?
If you are concerned about having a private space to meet for your session, no worries! A number of people use their cell phone while sitting in their car as it is the most quiet, private space they have available.
The video platform we use for online therapy services is integrated within our electronic healthcare record system, SimplePractice. SimplePractice uses a HIPAA compliant software so your information is kept safe, secure, and confidential.
