The word “telehealth” refers to the use of electronic and telecommunications technologies to support remote mental health care. For therapists, it most often involves the use of video and phone -based sessions.
What is Telehealth?
All of our therapists have undergone extensive training regarding best practices of offering telemental health. In addition, most of our therapists on staff are Board Certified TeleMental Health Providers (BC-TMH).
The Board Certified-TeleMental Health Provider credential identifies those professionals who are uniquely trained in best practices for delivering traditional behavioral healthcare through technological means. BC-TMH credential holders have met nationally established telemental health criteria.
Choose phone & video services for the following reasons:
We know how busy life can be. Sometimes, it’s tough to find time to schedule everything that’s important to you, including therapy. No need to drive to our office. Save time with our convenient phone & video services by using telehealth.
Whether you are traveling for pleasure or work, you can still see your therapist regularly. In couples therapy? No problem. Your spouse can come to the session in person, and you can join via phone or video chat.
Car trouble? Short on time and can’t make the commute? For the many factors that might prevent an office visit, your clinician is still available via phone or video chat, ready to help you improve your life and relationships.
Benefits of Telehealth
Approximately 123 million Americans live in an area with limited access to healthcare. Telehealth can play an important role in communities by increasing accessibility.

Reduced costs for clients
Research suggests Telehealth saves money when compared with traditional approaches to providing care: lower transportation costs, less time missed from work, and less money spent on child care expenses.
Better life balance
Improving yourself and your relationships, while saving time, energy and money not having to travel to a physical office can help you achieve a better life balance.
Same-level client care
Researchers have found no client outcome difference between Telehealth appointments and face-to-face office visits.
Better client experience
Telehealth eliminates the time wasted traveling in your car, sitting in traffic or sitting in the waiting room.
