Online Therapy

telepsych1We know it's sometimes hard to meet with us at our office. Sometimes you're too busy, live too far away, or have trouble finding childcare. So, we've added a video counseling service called Breakthrough. No need to drive, take the bus, or find childcare. Now we can meet wherever is most convenient for you - your couch, your kitchen, or your hotel room. The flexibility of Breakthrough's online therapy service makes it possible for you to meet with your therapist, minus the inconvenience of travel. All you need to connect with us is your computer, webcam, and internet access.

Breakthrough is easy to use, we promise! We've found that it is just as effective as meeting face-to-face and research backs us up on that.

  • Research by the National Institute of Mental Health, the Department of Veterans Affairs and Johns Hopkins, asserts that telehealth care can be just as effective as in-person. Their 2012 study found that live video treatment of 98,000 veterans with mental illness were able to reduce hospitalization rates and duration of hospital stays by 25%.
  • A 2014 white paper study, Breakthrough Quality Program: Proven Effective Online Careby the Center of Clinical Informatics also found that online care was just as effective as face-to-face care.

It's secure and accepted by most major health insurance companies. Perhaps, the best reason to consider it is, the ease of use makes it far more likely that you'll stick with and complete treatment, given other family and career obligations that you may be juggling.
