What is Telepsychology/Teletherapy/Tele-behavioral Health?

These are all just different terms for virtual therapy appointments, rather than face-to-face therapy. Telepsychology appointments are secure video appointments, using a HIPAA compliant video platform. Telepsychology is a useful virtual way for us to meet for your therapy at times when face to face meetings are not possible, whether due to COVID-19, or for other reasons when it is difficult for you to come to therapy in person.


Telepsychology Appointments for Clients in California

As long as you are located within California, you can contact me for telepsychology appointments. We will develop an emergency safety plan with your local resources in case they are ever needed, but being able to attend therapy virtually can be very beneficial for clients who may have difficulty finding a therapist near them.


Can I Use My Phone for Telepsychology?

All you need is a tablet, computer, or cell phone that has audio and video capabilities, as well as a strong and private internet connection. I will send you a link and all you have to do is click on your unique link to join for your appointment.

How Much Does Telepsychology Cost?

Every client has different symptoms, experiences, and needs, so there is no standard length of treatment in person or virtually. Some experience relief in a shorter amount of time, and for others it takes longer. The more a client participates within therapy, and in exercises between therapy appointments, the faster they typically experience symptom improvement.

Please inquire with your insurance company if they cover you for mental health treatment via telehealth or telepsychology and if you need a referral. Most insurance companies are currently covering telepsychology if they cover mental health treatment. You can see current therapy rates and which insurances are currently accepted on the Services page or FAQ page.
