FAQs and Random Info…

What is Virtual Therapy?

Virtual Therapy is therapy on your couch instead of mine! The process is identical to working with a therapist in a traditional office except we view each other via a HIPPA compliant video platform. You can launch the call from the device of your choice in the location of your choice. I virtually meet with clients in their business office, home office, the beach (literally!), car and basically wherever you feel most comfortable for us to connect.

What kind of Virtual Therapy do you do and how does it work?

My clinical style has always been eclectic with a tendency towards Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. As a clinician, I believe that there is not one style or one approach that works for an individual through the entire course of treatment. Together, we will develop a plan of action to address your goals. I tend to be more hands on with practical exercises, homework in between sessions and creative options so that you can begin to view life from a different lens.

What technology is needed?

All you need is a phone, tablet, laptop or computer with an internet or cell connection.

Why isn’t my insurance able to be billed?

Due to the differences of insurance company regulations, paneling requirements and the aspect of telehealth, most insurance companies will not cover the cost of a virtual therapy session. A receipt can be provided for you to submit to your insurance company for potential reimbursement, but all services will be fee for service at the time of the session.

What are your hours?

Crazy? Flexible? Open?
I am sure that we can find a time that works for both of us! Once you are an established client, you will be able to self-schedule your appointments around your busy schedule.

How often will I hear from you and how often do we meet?

How often we meet is completely up to you and what we decide is best for your clinical needs. The majority of sessions are weekly or biweekly, with check in messages in between as needed and as clinically appropriately.

How long will a session last?

A typical session will last for 50 minutes. 30 minute and 90-minute sessions are available based upon clinical need, but the average session lasts roughly an hour.

What if I do not live in Pennsylvania, Ohio or Tennessee? Can I still work with you?

Due to licensure ethics in relation to telehealth, a therapist needs to be licensed in the state that the client resides in. Check back if you live in an alternate state – I have a couple more states that I am considering adding to the list that will be covered.

I live in your area – can I see you in person?

As of January 2020, I am not accepting new clients in my local office. If you are a previous or returning client, please feel free to reach out via the Contact Me link. Previous clients will be able to schedule – as long as you can be flexible with appointment times initially!

I am interested in learning more about trainings or coaching opportunities – where can I find more information?
