What happens at a telepsychiatry session? My office will send you a private link to your session by email. Clicking the link brings you to my secure virtual waiting room, and from there we continue by videoconference as if we are meeting at my office.
The full range of psychiatric, counseling, and coaching services, including medication management, are conveniently available to you at the location that suits you best.
Your sessions are secure, HIPAA compliant, and encrypted end-to-end. None of your information is identifiable or stored.
This service is available to my clients in NY and FL. Accessibility for CA clients coming soon.
As of February 2018, the APA updated its Policy on Telepsychiatry:
Telemedicine in psychiatry, using video conferencing, is a validated and effective practice of medicine that increases access to care. The American Psychiatric Association supports the use of telemedicine as a legitimate component of a mental health delivery system to the extent that its use is for the benefit of the patient, protects patient autonomy, confidentiality, and privacy; and when used consistent with APA policies on medical ethics and applicable governing law.
