Telehealth refers to the use of electronic technology, with use of the Internet along with computers and cell phones, to provide healthcare services. I only offer video or phone sessions.
I am fully licensed in the state of Georgia to provide therapy services. I am licensed to provide telemental health services in Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Delaware, District of Columbia, Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and Virginia.
The following guidelines should be kept in mind when planning a telehealth session:
For children and adolescents, parents should be present at the initial intake session and available for all sessions.
The client should have a private place to talk with the doctor.
The patient (or parent) should have a cell phone available, in case there is a problem with the Internet connection.
For a Telehealth Appointment, you should have already completed and submitted the appropriate intake paperwork via the Theranest client portal.
To connect with me via Telehealth, you will need the following:
Access to the Internet.
A desktop computer, laptop, tablet or cell phone — the device must have a camera.
The Theranest link works best with the Google Chrome Internet browser.
Go to the link provided in your email or your secure Theranest messaging, usually sent the night before the session.
To begin a Telehealth Appointment/Session from the Internet:
At the appointment time, type in the client’s name, followed by pushing the “Check In” key. Then follow the prompts to set up your appointment session. This will take you to the doctor’s Waiting Room.
When your doctor is ready, she will appear on the screen.
If there are any problems connecting, call 678-718-5130.
