TELEHEALTH WEB-BASED COUNSELING EXPANDS
February 1st, 2016
Speaking with a therapist has become easier and more convenient thanks to David Lawrence Center’s new and expanded TeleHealth Services. Adults throughout the state of Florida can now access video counseling and coaching sessions with a variety of therapists who have diverse specialties. These sessions are done from the comfort of the client’s home or other location of their choice using any computer with an internet connection and video camera. Additional providers have been added with new and expanded appointment time availability including evenings and weekends. DLC’s TeleHealth Services launched last year as a pilot program.
Through the DLCTeleHealth.org website clients can get help with anxiety, loss of a loved one, relationships, depression, trauma or other issues related to their mental health. From the site visitors can access a directory of highly trained providers, schedule face-to-face video counseling session with a therapists, download and upload forms and make payments. Around the clock technical support is also available.
Scott Burgess, David Lawrence Center CEO, states, “TeleHealth is an innovative approach to deliver convenient web-based, HIPAA compliant behavioral health services.”
