All services are via telehealth.
Research shows that online therapy can be just as effective as in office therapy. If we decide online therapy is appropriate for you we would schedule a virtual appointment, just like you would an office visit. I use an easy and secure HIPPA compliant online platform, called Simple Practice. It is encrypted for confidentiality, and none of your information is stored. You can use a Mac, Personal Computer or Chromebook with camera, microphone, and speakers. I recommend using headphones when possible so only you and I can hear our conversation. You need an internet connection with at least 350kb/s download and upload speeds. Simple Practice only supports up to date Google Chrome and Firefox browsers.
Once scheduled, you will receive an email with a link. Click on that link from your device prior to your visit time, type your name and check in. This will place you in you in my virtual “waiting room.” I will come online when it is our appointment time, and we will carry on just like an office visit.
There are situations where online therapy is not appropriate. For example, where there are serious mental health issues involved, or couples with very emotionally volatile relationships, in person counseling will be more beneficial. We’ll decide that together in our initial consultation. Also, online therapy is limited to Oklahoma residents only.
Call me to discuss whether or not online appointments are a good fit for you.
