Clinical Telehealth

Did you know most insurances may cover clinical telehealth?

Technology has integrated itself with our society. Daily we use technology to communicate at a very rapid pace. As technology continues to grow it has begun to stretch out into many venues. One of these venues is counseling.

Our philosophy with clinical telehealth technology sessions assist the patient and his or her convenience/schedule.  The goal will always be to provide the best practices and promote the highest clinical standards. Ames Therapy and Consulting utilizes SecureVIdeo HIPPA Compliant Videoconferencing and TheraLink. Our clients will be able to access immediate care conveniently and privately now with the option to follow up in person.  Clinical telehealth is a venue to provide evidenced based mental health treatment which embraces a new and evolving technology/practice, bringing many advantages to the demands of counseling: 

ADVANTAGES:

  • Access to care- For those that are disabled or limited in travel abilities now have access to counseling professionals; those in rural areas seeking providers, and overall convenience for the client. For example chronic pain patients that have difficulty traveling, clients with busy schedules, students with demanding class schedules, or patients that need immediate access to care.

 

  • Brief Interventions - connection with counselors during acute issues is now readily available. Provides immediate counseling for situations such as divorce/break-up, parenting, test anxiety, stress management, and more. 

 

  • Cost Savings to Insurers & Clients- limits commute cost, offers greater access for counselor interaction in a highly concentrated setting. Includes savings on commute including gas, and most importantly time out of your day. 

Initial paperwork will still need to be completed by each client. All of our initial paperwork can be easily accessed on one's online portal. You will be able to immediately book online or call in and schedule your appointment. You are able to schedule by clicking 'Book Now' above.
