I still believe that in person counseling is the most effective way to receive counseling. Whenever possible this is what I recommend to potential clients. However, in these times of COVID 19 pandemic, hectic schedules, public health emergencies, and other problematic situations in person counseling may not be an option. I offer teletherapy when requested or when in person therapy is not a safe option. I also offer telephone counseling once a clinical relationship is established and teletherapy is not possible
I do offer telephone counseling and teletherapy in certain situations.
Teletherapy service is available when in person visit is not possible or when it presents a public health/safety risk. Please check with your insurance provider about coverage. I use a HIPPHA compliant platform. I do not provide clinical social work across state lines.
I can offer telephone therapy AFTER at least one in person session or teletherapy session has been attended. I do not practice clinical social work across state lines and cannot provide telephone therapy if you live outside of the state of Oregon. Telephone therapy is still relatively new to mental health and I cannot assure full privacy or efficacy.
