InnerVoice PC is now offering teletherapy, a form of telehealth. Also known as online counseling….So what does that mean???
What is telehealth?
Teletherapy allows practitioners and clients to visit remotely when circumstances prevent in-person sessions. This can take place using a secure video conferencing method or, if necessary, even the telephone. Video and audio platforms can be easily accessed using your smartphone, tablet, or computer.
Why we are doing teletherapy?
Our talented team of therapists are continuing to provide care and support through the use of online teletherapy. Teletherapy allows you and your provider to meet during this time of uncertainty while honoring the public health guidelines aimed at protecting you, us, and especially the most vulnerable among us.
I’m not tech-savvy, will I be able to figure this out?
We want to make this as easy and painless as possible. We use a simple system where you will receive an invitation with a link to join. If you have any trouble, your therapist can certainly help. This process is new to many of us so we are in this together.
What should I do to get ready for my session?
Find a quiet private space with a good internet connection or sit close to the router. Put your monitor or camera a few feet away from your face as it will make it less awkward. If it’s uncomfortable to see your face during the session, feel free to cover that portion of the screen with a small piece of paper.
In challenging times like this we need each other more than ever. If you find that you or your family needs mental health support please reach out to us.
We are here to help.

Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees. Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service by contacting [email protected]. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises
