On-Line Therapy

On-line mental health therapy
You  can access On-Line Therapy during the Stay at Home Order!  

We can provide you the support that you need during the COVID19 crisis.  Wellness Matters is able provide therapy totally on-line!  After contacting us, we will connect new clients with our client portal for completing the intake paperwork on-line. Our electronic health care record system and on-line tele-health platform are HIPPA compliant and are covered by insurance at the same level as in-office visits.  (It is important to know that Zoom meetings are not HIPPA-compliant as the images and audio are recorded and may be accessed by system administrators.)

Do you want to look forward to counseling rather than feeling stressed out about it?

Do you want help but find it difficult to squeeze an appointment in your schedule?  Is your life so busy that it is hard to find time to attend appointments?  Do you struggle with social anxiety or have physical barriers that make leaving your home or office difficult?  During the COVID19 pandemic, you can access the support that you need from the comfort of your home, keeping you and your family members safe.

Are you nervous about bumping into someone you know at the clinic?

Are you worried about your car being parked outside of a mental health clinic?   Have you received mental health services before and found the process of entering a crowded clinic so uncomfortable that you didn’t go back?  Have you experienced other clients telling people that they saw you at the clinic?

Would you like the convenience of therapy “coming to you”?

Do you wonder if on-line therapy is the same as telehealth, teletherapy, telemedicine, e-visits or virtual care?  Do you wonder if the content of the counseling sessions is safe and secure?  Do you wonder if on-line counseling sessions are covered by insurance?

On-Line services are easy to use, secure, and covered by most insurance companies

On-line therapy sessions — also known as telehealth, teletherapy, telemedicine, e-visits and virtual care – make mental health services available to anyone with a computer or a device with a microphone and camera. You can choose where to have your session — in your office, your home or wherever else is convenient and private.  There is no need to download any software or create an account.  On-line sessions are generally covered by insurance companies to the same level as clinic-based services.

Limitations of on-line therapy

Telehealth, teletherapy, telemedicine, e-visits and virtual care are not emergency services – in the event of an emergency, please call 911.   On-line services are not be adequate or appropriate for every type of therapeutic situation and, therefore, Wellness Matters staff may decline to engage in on-line services if clinically deemed inadequate or inappropriate.

How do on-line appointments work?

When it is time for your appointment, you will receive an e-mail from your therapist with a link which will instantly connect you.  Wellness Matters uses Simple Practice which is a “HIPPA-compliant” service that ensures privacy and security.  All data is encrypted, sessions are anonymous, and none of the sounds or images are stored.
