Therapy SERVICES from the comfort of your home

Our Teletherapy Services

Teletherapy is a mental health service that is provided by using long-distance technologies so that clients and therapists do not have to be in the same place at the same time.

Please note: Due to the social distancing required during the corona virus pandemic, we are advising all of our clients to book teletherapy sessions.

All of our therapists are available to provide secure, online video sessions in case you are not able to make it to the office.

How much does it cost

Payment Options

BCBS, Cigna, Medicare, United Behavioral Health and Aetna are indicating they will cover behavioral health care via telephone and HIPPA-compliant platforms per their recent announcements. 

If you have any questions or concerns as to the accuracy of this information or whether you are eligible, please contact your insurance provider directly to ensure they will pay for your telephone/video visits. 

We are also offering self-pay telehealth visits for those clients who are not covered.
