CORONAVIRUS AND COUNSELING
DON'T LET THE CORONAVIRUS PREVENT YOU FROM GETTING THE HELP YOU NEED. COUNSELING IS AVAILABLE TO HELP YOU GET THROUGH THIS CRISIS.
We are living in unprecedented and challenging times right now. The stress of having to practice "Social Distancing" can impact mental health. State and local governments, as well as the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have recommended that in-person contact be limited. Many mental health providers have gone to Telemental Health (Video Therapy)
You may feel a little strange about online therapy. However, if we all do our part, this won't last forever. Once the Coronavirus is under control, you can switch to in-person therapy.
Luckily, I have been doing Telemental Health services for over a year. I have clients all over the country in Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, Virginia, Texas, and Alabama. I am set up to meet with clients via TeleMental Health immediately. I utilize a program called ZOOM. A very popular and easy-to-navigate program where we can meet securely.
What Device Do I Need for Counseling?
Almost All Smart Phone Brands
INSURANCE AND PAYMENT
During this very stressful time, it is important that you take care of your mental health. Counseling can be a huge part of helping you overcome the stress and anxiety that comes from all of the changes that have been happening.
GREAT NEWS! Due to the state of emergency, there are a number of insurance companies that are reimbursing for Telemental Health/Teletherapy. This means that insurance would be billed the same way that it would be in the office.
Please check out my page on FEES, INSURANCE, AND LOCATION for more information regarding the insurance plans accepted.

AFTER THE VIRUS
We all hope for a day very soon where things return to normal. Whenever it is safe again, you can choose whether you want to continue to do sessions via TeleMental Health (VideoTherapy) or if you would like to come to the office for a traditional session. Or, a combination of both.
It is understandable if you have some concerns. Please feel free to call or text me at (912) 417-5085 so we can talk about those concerns. It is important that you get the mental health care that you need during this national crisis.
WHAT ABOUT KIDS & TELETHERAPY?
Children can also benefit from meeting via Telemental Health! In fact, some of them prefer to meet this way. During TeleMental Health sessions, I will keep your child engaged while working on their therapy goals. For more information about my services with children, please click HERE.
If you still have questions, please fee free to set up a free video or phone consultation. Again, once things are safe, your child can have in-person office visits at my Savannah, GA location.
