During the COVID-19 outbreak, I am conducting all therapy sessions via Telehealth. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services waived all restrictions on Telehealth services for the next 120 days, and Governor Greg Abbott declared that all Insurers in Texas must cover Telehealth services at the same rate as in office services.
During these uncertain times, the need for mental health services may be even more critical than ever. The pervasive anxiety created by a global pandemic requires us to access inner resources of resiliency. These challenges also have the potential to trigger old fears and emotions connected to past traumas. It is important to continue to care for our mental health in order to persevere.
My plan is to continue providing high quality services, including EMDR, via Telehealth during this difficult time. In my experience, Telehealth is an effective method of providing treatment to clients through the Doxy.me platform. This is a HIPAA secure platform for healthcare providers to video conference with clients. There is no need to download an App; you simply click on the link to my virtual waiting room.
I am currently accepting new clients for Telehealth sevices, including EMDR.
