Are you interested in getting your therapy fix right from the comfort of your own home or office?
In addition to in-office therapy in Asheville, I offer the convenient option of online video counseling through my sister company, Hazel Tree Online Counseling. After recognizing that many of my clients were traveling for work and missing the sessions they relied on, or having to pay a babysitter in order to meet with me, I decided that online services might be the key to making therapy more accessible for everyone.
Online Counseling FAQ
Will my insurance cover online therapy sessions?
Yes! Most major insurance companies do cover telehealth or online therapy sessions. To make sure that yours does, you can call the number on the back of your card and ask the question "Do you reimburse for telehealth?".
How does it work and what would I need to have at my home/office in order to do it?
We meet over a Skype-like system (HIPPA compliant Zoom) and each time we meet I will send you an invitation to our session.
You would need to have:
A reliable internet connection
Some sort of screen (smartphone, tablet or computer)
What are some benefits of meeting online vs. meeting in person?
Scheduling flexibility & Time-Saving – There is no commute for online therapy which can save you anywhere from a small to a large amount of time depending on where you live. Some clients are even able to do their sessions from the privacy of their work office over a lunch hour.
Increased anonymity and access - Asheville can be a small town! With online therapy, you don’t have to worry about running into people you know in the waiting room.
Comfort - With online therapy, we can meet from the comfort of your own home. You can have your beloved pets nearby and even do therapy in your pajamas if you are so inclined.
