As the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to have an impact in our community, we are taking steps to keep you - our clients and friends - healthy and safe.
In response to COVID-19 and the continued increase in cases in our area, we are continuing to treat clients through an online telehealth app or phone sessions. We are re-evaluating every two weeks. We want to have a safe environment for our clients and ourselves. Currently, phase 1-3 require the use of face masks for employees and clients. First, much of what we do as therapist relies on being able to see facial expressions as we talk. Second, when a client is having to concentrate very hard on being able to hear what is being said through a mask they will stay in their cognitive/rational state and it makes it difficult to process emotions. We are looking forward to opening our new office to individuals, couples, groups and for intensive workshops. Until then we are available to meet your needs online.Life Matters Counseling, PLLC continues to be open to serve clients.
We Can Schedule Phone sessions, or Online Session Using the “VSEE” App
We have used a telehealth platform for years with clients whose health or location make it difficult to come into the office in-person. This service is very secure and confidential – meeting and exceeding HIPAA compliance standards. It is the same product used by NASA astronauts to communicate with the International Space Station. There are desktop and mobile device Apps for Mac, Windows, iOS, and Android devices. You can find it by searching for VSEE in your App Store – your therapist will send you a customized link to download the app and connect specifically to them.
If you choose to use this option, please send us an email to confirm that this is how you would prefer to do your appointment.At the time of your appointment, just open your VSee app and login.Your therapist will login around the time of your appointment and initiate the Video Call with you.
We can also schedule to talk by phone for a session, if you would prefer.
