Benefits of

Telebehavioral Health

  • Research studies indicate telebehavioral health has similar outcomes to in-office outpatient therapy.

  • It is significantly more cost effective for the provider and the consumer and opens up more options for "straight to consumer" services, eliminating reliance on insurance benefits to cover services. 

  • It increases access to providers. 80% of people in need of treatment live in health provider shortage areas and do not have access to in-office therapy. 

  • It creates wider range of providers, specialists, and appointment times for clients. 

  • It reduces delays in care and the negative impact of "wait lists" on client treatment. 

  • Reduces stigma and increases privacy for clients concerned about "being seen" in the waiting room. 

  • Improves satisfaction with the health care system and enables continuity of care by re-conceptualizing services. ​

Our Video Platform

We use a HIPAA Compliant Video Platform specifically designed for telebehavioral health called VSee. It is an easy to install application and is accessible through most mobile devices, tablets, laptops and PC's.
