Learn More About Teletherapy Below
Elevate Mental Health offers online therapy (teletherapy, video therapy or telehealth) using a HIPPAA compliant secure service. Online therapy can be done through your phone, tablet, desktop computer or laptop. This allows you to gain all the benefits of traditional in-person therapy in the comfort of your own home, office or whatever location best fits your needs.
During the initial session we will help you develop a firm understanding of the nature of your problem and be an active participant in any treatment decisions. We will create a treatment plan along with treatment outcomes and expectations to make the process as clear as possible.
Whether we are meeting face-to-face or through teletherapy, we look forward to helping you live your best life!
