Telehealth, also known as virtual therapy is therapy delivered through a live HIPAA compliant video connection. It can provide the same treatment as if meeting each other in person. 


Virtual therapy

  • creates, promotes and maintains the access to quality care and offers you greater flexibility
  • provides rural, distant and metropolitan communities with access to specialized care
  • eliminates travel time and additional expenses (i.e., parking, gas, transportation expense, wear and tear of your car/bicycle)
  • allows you to continue your treatment when work, family/children or schedules get in the way of attending an in-person appointment

UPDATE: As of March 19th, 2020.  

Due to the Covid-19, the Center for Disease Control recommends we practice social distancing (i.e. staying 6 feet apart, staying home if one feels sick).  Most health insurance carriers are reimbursing for virtual appointments (face to face video).  For more information about Covid-19, please visit

Please contact us to schedule an appointment.      


Since January 2019, most major health insurance carriers offer virtual therapy as a treatment delivery method.  You must always check with your insurance company to ensure that these services are reimbursable under your specific plan and whether you need to sign up for a third-party party vendor to access these services.

  • Virtual therapy is accessible through your phone, tablet, or computer — any device with an internet connection. If you have ever used Skype or FaceTime on your smart device, you have used the same type of technology used with virtual therapy.
  • Appointment times are the same length as your in-person sessions* and can quickly be scheduled and rescheduled with our online scheduler.
  • You choose a quiet, private spot free of distraction, interruptions, and background noise and connect with your therapist via a secure online platform.

* Your insurance company may require you to use a third-party vendor, and sessions may be 45mins in duration.  Please check with your insurance company for more details.

  • It is a convenient way to gain access to high-quality. Your appointment/ session takes place in a setting of your choosing. We encourage you to select a quiet space (i.e., your car, private conference room, any room in your home) that is private and where you have access to a computer or mobile device and an internet connection.  
  • It is an excellent option when faced with the possibility of missing an appointment because of your schedule, traveling, unexpected changes in one's parenting schedule, being housebound, being away for extended periods, or due to bad weather.
  • It is a way to access and include family members in your care and treatment planning when one or more participants are traveling, or schedules and geographical distance do not allow for everyone to be in the same place at the same time.
  • Our teletherapy platform protects your privacy — we provide a HIPAA compliant platform for our services.
