Telepsychiatry a.k.a. Telepsych is the process of using technology, such as videoconferencing to deliver psychiatric services. In psychiatry, we use telemedicine as a form of online therapy. We can provide psychiatric consultations, therapy, medication management, and life coaching appointments all through telemedicine. We use a secure, HIPAA compliant platform to deliver remote online therapy to our clients. Our telepsychiatry appointments (or online appointments) are very similar to in-person sessions. It includes live, direct interaction between the doctor and patient, the doctor can prescribe medications and can write referrals the same as if the patient came into the office. The online appointment is set up the same as if it were in-person, but at the time of appointment, the patient will log onto and meet the doctor in the online platform rather than in our office.
Teletherapy provides many benefits; one of the major benefits is the level of access it allows. For our patients who frequently travel or have difficulties finding time to make it for an in-person appointment, telemedicine has proven very helpful. It is also beneficial for people who have long commutes and don’t want to deal with coming into the city for appointments. For patients who move but do not want to start over with a new therapist or doctor, telemedicine is a great alternative. Within our practice, we make it a top priority to be there for our patients when they need us. With telemedicine, providing online therapy has never been easier.

There are many reasons people do not seek treatment for their symptoms, ranging from their denial of a problem to guilt and shame to not knowing how/when to seek help. Many times a person will put themselves in treatment when they accept they have an issue and are ready to get help, but often times it happens through family and friends intervening. If you are concerned for yourself or someone you know, it is ok to reach out for help.

Your first step is to call us to schedule your initial appointment.
Your initial evaluation session provides an opportunity for you to build rapport with the psychiatrist/therapist and provide them with some background about yourself and the reasons you are seeking psychiatric treatment. In addition to seeing if you will be a good candidate for psychiatric treatment, they will be able to answer your questions regarding services, confidentiality, and what to expect in treatment. With your best interests in mind, you will decide together what kind of treatment will benefit you the most.
At the end of your first session, if you decide to move forward and work with that psychiatrist, you will be asked to schedule further appointments. At your second appointment, you will work with your therapist to set goals for your overall mental health experience and then begin working together towards achieving them.
