As a psychologist licensed in California, I offer teletherapy to anyone residing in the state of California. It's a very convenient option if you live far away from city centers, have a busy schedule, or prefer to work with a therapist who practices the form of therapy you are looking for.
In my experience teletherapy offers the same benefits of meeting with patients in person.
How to prepare for teletherapy:
Make sure you are in a private location. In a physical office I can secure confidentiality but I cannot ensure this on your end of the conversation when meeting by video or phone.
It's preferable to use earbuds/headphones with a microphone in order to get greater audio clarity and reduce feedback.
Breaks in the internet connection can happen, so it's helpful to make sure you have closed all other windows and apps, and possibly reset your modem and browser.
Billing for teletherapy will be done through an easy to use third party app called Ivy Pay.
