“We offer our clients the option to seek therapy and stay connected to their therapist from the comfort of their home, privacy of their office, and while away on business or vacation.”
What is Virtual Therapy?
Virtual therapy or teletherapy is the online delivery of mental health therapy services using high resolution, HIPAA compliant, live video conferencing. Teletherapy, also known as virtual therapy, e-therapy and online therapy, is delivered through an online platform on your computer, smart phone or tablet. Currently, Emmaus uses Clocktree, ZOOM, and Doxyme as video conferencing programs.
Whether you choose it for safety or personal preference, expect the same results.
What do I need to participate?
Virtual sessions work the same way face-to-face therapy sessions. Each session is 50-60 minutes and can be done from the comfort and safety of your own home. All you need is a reliable internet connection, a connecting device (computer, tablet or smart phone), and a quiet comfortable place to connect with your therapist.
Can I use my insurance for sessions?
Most insurance plans cover virtual or teletherapy sessions just as they would an in-office session. Teletherapy sessions have been proven to be as effective and confidential as traditional face-to-face in-office sessions. We recommend that you check with your provider to be sure you’re covered.
