Through audio and video over the internet, we can meet for a Virtual Therapy session on-the-go from your desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile device (iOS or Android) – it’s your choice!
I use Telehealth by SimplePractice for online therapy sessions. Telehealth by SimplePractice is simple to use and HIPAA-compliant, so it fully protects your confidentiality. All data with SimplePractice is secured with bank-level encryption.
What equipment do I need?
To participate in online appointments, you will need one of the following devices:
- Desktop computer with a webcam and speakers, OR
- Laptop computer with built-in webcam and speakers, OR
- Tablet with built-in webcam and speakers, OR
- Smartphone. (Note: To use a smartphone, you must first download Telehealth by SimplePractice – available for iOS or Android in the app store.)
You will also need an internet connection that is at least 10 Mbps. For optimal results, a reliable, high-speed internet connection with a bandwidth of at least 10 Mbps will minimize connection issues and provide the best quality. Google provides an easy way to test your internet connection directly from the Google homepage.
If you’re using wifi and not hitting 10 Mbps, try using an ethernet cable to plug directly into your internet. Try closing down other programs that are running on your device. Or try shutting down other devices running off your internet.
Concerns About Privacy
In the event you live with others in your home and you are concerned about your privacy during online therapy sessions, I suggest using headphones so that others in the house cannot hear my voice. You may also consider sitting in your car or somewhere private outside.
