Telehealth or Online Therapy
What is Telehealth?
Telehealth is a the ability to see your therapist via video conferencing. Sessions are conducted using a secure method. Most insurance companies are now reimbursing for Telehealth therapy.
How does it work?
As a therapist licensed in the State of California, we can only provide services via internet to those client's residing in the state. Proof of identity and residency will be required prior to beginning treatment in the form of driver's license/or ID card, passport, or birth certificate.
Additional Limits of Confidentiality
While using every reasonable means to protect and encrypt conversations and records of treatment, when doing therapy by Internet or other electronic means, such encryption can not be guaranteed.
If I believe you are a danger or become a danger to yourself or to someone else, I may inform others or insist that you be evaluated, in person, by another health care professional.
You, the patient, are encouraged to protect your own confidentiality by controlling access to your communications about your treatment by using passwords only known by you, controlling access to your computer, deleting data as agreed, etc.
