Online therapy is also known by the terms teletherapy, e-therapy and telemedicine. I am able to offer video conferencing using the platform doxy.me which is HIPAA compliant. Doxy.me requires either chrome or firefox, a computer/laptop or smartphone with both a camera and microphone, and a strong internet connection. Clients who are at risk for suicidality or other risk factors may not be good candidates for teletherapy and we will discuss this during your assessment.
I am able to offer therapy for clients anywhere in the state of California. It has many benefits including:
In order to for your session to be the most successful I encourage you to log in a little early in case of connectivity issues, make sure you are in a quiet and private space, make sure your devices are charged, take care of your creature comforts (blankets, tissue, pets). I will send you a link to access doxy.me prior to our sessions. I require you to confirm your phone number in case our internet connection is poor and your physical address prior to each session in case of emergency. If you would like more information please contact me at 916-952-7187 or Lindseystewart05@gmail.com.
As of March, 2020 I am offering teletherapy in order to allow clients to continue to access safe, confidential support in spite of the pandemic. Offerings include therapy and EMDR by phone or secure video platforms. Please note that with few exceptions all new clients will be teletherapy only until further notice. Contact me to find out more.
