Telehealth

Do you need support for your mental health, but can’t make it to an in-person appointment?

Are you a busy stay-at-home or working parent, and don’t have time to schedule or keep doctor appointments?

 

Telehealth (or telemedicine) is a fairly recent innovation. Telehealth allows the facilitation of health-related services to patients via live video conferencing. Thanks to modern technology, just about everyone in the U.S. has a smartphone or tablet capable of video chat.

Telehealth appointments can be very beneficial if getting to a traditional in-person appointment is a hassle for you. If you lack the time or resources to use public transportation, are physically disabled or live in a remote area, telehealth appointments can help by removing the need to leave your home to attend an appointment.

So if this sounds like you:

  • Your health problem isn’t covered by your insurance
  • You don’t have the right type of professional nearby
  • You lack the time or resources to get to an in-person appointment
  • You want the ease and convenience of a video conference appointment

… then Telehealth services may be just what you need.

The convenience of scheduling an appointment through a phone app cannot be understated. Quickly pick a date and time, and you’ve scheduled your online appointment. There’s no need to get ready, or even leave your bed or couch. If you have social anxiety or phobias that cause you to avoid social interactions, Telehealth makes it easier for you to get therapy.

Qualifications for Telehealth: 

  • Be physically located in Washington State.
  • Stable internet connection.
  • Free from thoughts of self-harm or suicide.
