Individual Psychotherapy for Adults
Individual psychotherapy is a unique and rewarding opportunity to learn more about oneself under the guidance of a trained professional. Using evidence based psychological approaches such as cognitive behavior therapy, I help clients identify problematic patterns of thinking and behavior that may be influencing various parts of their lives. Working in collaboration with a client, a treatment plan is then developed. The treatment plan could be very specific and include clear, time-limited goals such as quitting unhealthy habits, or it could be very general such as when a person prefers to talk about subjects that are more emotionally focused. Sessions are held once a week and last between 45-55 minutes. At this time I do not see individuals under the age of 18
Telemedicine is the use of technology to provide real-time health care to clients from a distance. From the comforts of your home or away, and only requiring a video-ready computer with good internet connection, telemedicine appointments provide the same quality care as one would receive in person but without the hassle of taking time off work, finding a sitter, or having transportation troubles.
I use the HIPAA secure video platform, Doxy.me to communicate with clients. It’s a simple and free service that does not require special hardware or software setup. Typically, I talk to a client on the phone first to schedule an appointment and describe the telemedicine process. On the day of the appointment I send clients an email with a weblink that will direct them to my virtual waiting room. Any fees associated with the appointment (like co-pays) are paid for electronically at the end of session.
Some insurance plans do not cover telemedicine service. You must call the customer service phone number on the back of your insurance card and ask whether telemedicine for behavioral health is a covered benefit of your plan. If not, you will be charged the full fee for a session.
Because of our training, psychologists have a deep understanding of human behavior and its consequences. As a result, we tend to find ourselves in thought-provoking conversations both amongst our peers, with our clients, with our families, and in the community. I especially enjoy leading and moderating ‘real-talk’ conversations that spark passionate dialogue amongst its participants.
