Online Therapy

My practice is now expanding to include online therapy (also known as tele-mental health). Ample research has been conducted to show the benefits of utilizing modern technology for therapeutic applications. You may visit http://onlinetherapyinstitute.com/does-online-therapy-work/ for a brief overview of the benefits of online therapy. Online therapy is not for everyone. However, people who are in need of therapeutic services and are unable to travel due to care giving or chronic or terminal illness or patients who have time issues such as those with full time employment may benefit from this expansion. Please be aware that the use of Skype or other video conferencing that is not encrypted does NOT protect your confidentiality. That means someone unknown to you could be monitoring what you say or type. After receiving proper training for tele-mental health services and carefully considering my ethical and legal responsibilities to my patients, I have chosen a service that I pay for that ensures HIPAA compliance through the use of encryption. All communication that takes place using my secure patient area is completely safe and is not viewable by third parties. To see this area of my site, please navigate to the heading "Register" on my web page and follow the directions to the secure patient area. Please continue to check back here on my blog for more information about the uses and benefits of online therapy in the future.
