Do you need mental health support, but can’t make it to an in-person appointment?
Are you a busy stay-at-home or working parent, and don’t have time to schedule or keep therapy appointments?
We are excited to now offer Telehealth sessions with our therapists at Cornerstone! In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are dedicated to continue to serve our community’s mental health needs while protecting the health of both our clients and therapists.
Telehealth (or teletherapy) is a fairly recent innovation. Teletherapy allows the facilitation of mental health services to patients via live video conferencing. Thanks to modern technology, just about everyone in the U.S. has a smartphone or tablet capable of video chat. This ease of access to make video calls has revolutionized the mental health industry, allowing therapists and doctors to interact with patients through a convenient video call.
Using your smartphone or computer, you can have a remote therapy or counseling appointment with your therapist.
When you schedule a phone/video-counseling session, your therapist will send you a link for a secure and HIPAA compliant video session.
Telehealth appointments can be very beneficial if getting to a traditional in-person appointment is a hassle for you. If you lack the time or resources to use public transportation, are physically disabled or live in a remote area, telehealth appointments can help by removing the need to leave your home to attend an appointment.
So if this sounds like you:
You are social distancing due to the Coronavirus pandemic
You don’t have the right type of therapist in your local area
You lack the time or resources to get to an in-person therapy appointment
You want the ease and convenience of a video conference appointment
… then Telehealth services may be just what you need.
You can schedule an appointment online now. There’s no need to get ready, or even leave your bed or couch. If you have social anxiety or phobias that cause you to avoid social interactions, Telehealth makes it easier for you to get therapy or medication.
