What is Telehealth?
Telehealth is a secure, HIPPA-compliant way of providing safe therapy or psychiatry online. Similar to an in-person appointment, you would meet with your clinician to set treatment goals, share experiences and connect regularly and/or discuss your medication needs. In order to do this effectively, you would need a computer with a camera, a phone or tablet and find a quiet, private space for your scheduled appointment. Heading out of town? No problem. Telehealth is a great way to continue your mental health appointments and feel safe and connected no matter where you go! To read more about the risks or policies of online therapy, please read over our required Telehealth / Distance Counseling Consent Form.
How Could Telehealth Benefit Me?
For many, attending a therapy appointment regularly can be difficult with work, family, travel and other commitments. At LifeCare, we know this can be challenging to set a series of appointments and it not interfere with your schedule. Counseling should not be a burden, but an opportunity to grow and self-care. At LifeCare we have many clinicians who are experienced in providing effective telethealth for those who may need this support.
How Do I Schedule a Telehealth Appointment?
During this season with COVID-19 and social distancing ALL SESSIONS will be held virtually using an array of Telehealth and other virtual systems. To schedule an appointment, please contact our office at 919-851-1527 or your specific therapist via email. Our online portal does not distinguish between Telehealth vs. in-person appointments at the moment, but if you schedule an appointment during this time, you will receive follow-up communication regarding your Telehealth session.
