TELETHERAPY

ONLINE + PHONE SESSIONS ARE NOW AVAILABLE AS AN OPTION!

There may be any number of reasons why meeting in my office may not always be convenient or manageable for you.  The availability of online and phone appointments can make seeing me more feasible. 

ONLINE VIDEO SESSIONS:

Online appointments allow you to receive the same quality care that you can receive in person. No need to take time off work, find a sitter, deal with traffic or weather problems, or make a trip that's physically difficult for you. Plus, you can engage in therapy from the comfort and privacy of your home or even your office.

PHONE SESSIONS

Phone appointments are another option I offer. They have many of the same advantages as online sessions (e.g. convenience, no need to travel to my office, etc.), but require less technology and less technological knowledge.

TELETHERAPY: CONVENIENT, COMFORTABLE, PRIVATE

Patients are sometimes concerned  that teletherapy won't be as effective as in-person treatment. While teletherapy may not be appropriate for all patients, studies have shown that when appropriate, teletherapy is as effective as in-person psychotherapy.

Most insurance companies now cover both online video sessions and telephone sessions. 


And, it's always possible to decide to do a mix of in-office, telephone and online video sessions, which enables me to further tailor our therapy to what works well for you.

 If you are interested in either phone sessions or online video sessions, please click below to submit a contact form. Or, you may contact me by phone at (585) 292-0095.


[At the present time, I am only offering teletherapy sessions  to people who live in the Western NY area.
