Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in-person counseling sessions have been temporarily suspended. All sessions are now conducted by telemental health through video or phone.
Telehealth is a fairly recent innovation. Telehealth allows the mental health counselors to provide services to clients via live video conferencing. Thanks to modern technology, just about everyone in the U.S. has a smart phone, tablet, or computer capable of video chat. This ease of access to make video calls has revolutionized the health industry, allowing counselors to interact with clients through a convenient phone call.
Using your smart phone, tablet, or computer, you can consult with a mental health professional to receive ongoing care to have a remote counseling appointment.
Telehealth appointments can be very beneficial since getting to a traditional in-person appointment is not an option right now. Telehealth can help you by removing the need to leave your home to attend an appointment. There’s no need to get ready or even leave your couch for a telehealth appointment.
I use the telehealth HIPAA compliant platform through Doxy.me. For more information, click on this link Telehealth Information for Clients to be directed to information that should answer all of your questions.
