Telementalhealth or telehealth, refers to psychotherapy services that occur via phone, email, or synchronous video conferencing. Technology allows us to connect with each other when we would not be able to reasonably meet at the office, and it allows for more flexibility in scheduling, and is often more convenient. When using technology there is always the risk of security issues, as well as technical issues (phone not charged, computer or software not working, etc.). We will develop an individualized plan for how best to address technical issues that may arise and will take steps to facilitate the security of our interactions. The platform I am currently using is simple to connect with and is HIPAA approved.
