Telehealth Sessions

I offer Telehealth sessions for clients throughout Massachusetts. A telehealth session is conducted over a video call or by phone. Telehealth sessions have been increasingly utilized by therapists over the past several years, and they have been shown to be about as effective as in-person sessions. For the most part, I address the same issues using the same methods that I do for in-person sessions.

At this time, most insurance companies are covering telehealth services. My experience is that the insurance benefits for telehealth, including deductible and copay, are often very similar to the in-person outpatient behavioral health benefits. I charge the same fees for Telehealth sessions as I do for in-person sessions.

I offer video sessions through an online tool called Doxy.me. Doxy.me is free for clients, and there is no need to download any software or any app. The client simply uses a web browser on a computer, phone, or tablet to access my account. There is no need for the client to set up an account. The website is simply a secure conduit for the video call. For more information on this tool, visit www.Doxy.me.
