Teletherapy

Equipment Needed

A computer with a webcam or a smart phone and internet access.

*If you do not have access to this type of equipment, or to the internet, please discuss this with your therapist to discuss other arrangements.

Privacy/Confidentiality

In an effort to protect your privacy, and to gain the most benefit from your session, it is important that at the time of your appointment you do not have other people in the room with you unless agreed upon with the therapist.

Informed Consent

In the Forms tab, there is an informed consent form for teletherapy that we would like to have clients sign and return, if at all possible. Under the circumstances, we will accept a verbal agreement at this time if necessary. Forms can be returned to us by mail or faxed at 320-774-1621.

Insurance/Copays

Most insurance companies cover teletherapy the same as a face-to-face session. However, please be aware that it is ultimately your responsibility to verify coverage with your insurance company. If you typically have a copay, you can call our receptionist in advance of your appointment to pay over the phone, you may give your card information to your therapist, or wait to be billed in the mail.

Children and Families

Sessions for children and families may function differently using teletherapy. The session may be geared more toward parenting support as play therapy is more challenging through teletherapy. Sessions may only last for 30-45 minutes depending on the child’s age, attention span, and the needs of the parent and family.
