Telehealth: Making therapy accessible - across New Jersey and beyond
Telehealth is therapy that is provided virtually.
It involves the use of videoconferencing to deliver mental health services.
We get it! Life can present a number of hurdles to receiving the counseling and wellness services you need. Juggling multiple demands on your time and energy resources can be exhausting. Anything below seem familiar?
- Hectic work schedules & Family demands.
- Traffic & Long-distance driving for support.
- Unexpected changes in plans.
- Health concerns.
- Mobility challenges.
- Residing in areas where services are less accessible.
- Extracurricular activities.
- General stresses and inconveniences.
We are sure that there’s more that can be added to the list and that it can all be enough to make you consider foregoing services before you even get started!
When you need support, the option to make it to an in-person appointment may seem out of reach.
But like we said though…we get it, and we aim to make services more accessible to you.
We are a hybrid practice. This means that while there are some limitations, you will generally have the option of meeting with your provider in-person or virtually (telehealth/teletherapy).
Telehealth allows your provider to provide counseling via live video conferencing. This can be done anywhere that you have access to a computer with a video camera or a smartphone.
Telehealth appointments can be very beneficial when getting to an in-person appointment is not convenient, poses a health risk, presents accessibility challenges, or is simply your preferred method of meeting.
If you are located in one of the states below you can meet with your provider virtually. If a virtual session is not appropriate for any reason, your provider will discuss this with you. To learn more and get started, please contact us today.
