Teletherapy

Professional online counseling is now available for clients from the comfort of your own home.

Particularly during the current COVID19 crisis, there is an unprecedented need for people to both remain socially distant from others and receive ongoing emotional support from others. In response to these competing demands, PAC is offering teletherapy sessions which can be accessed on your computer or smartphone.
 

What to expect from online counseling:

  • Teletherapy is just like in-person sessions, but are conducted through our secure, HIPAA compliant video service
  • These sessions, like traditional therapy, are conducted by licensed clinicians
  • Teletherapy is now covered by most major insurance plans
  • Sessions can be accessed on your internet browser or through a smartphone app, “Simple Practice”
  • Prior to your session, you will receive a link via email for your secure video meeting. Simply click this link to join the video with your therapist
