Telephone & Online Sessions
People from all over Illinois can now access my specialist knowledge via telephone sessions or online by using internet based video conferencing technology called Vsee (www.Vsee.com) which is similar to Skype but HIPAA compliant. Vsee is free to download to your computer or via an app for your phone.
Perhaps you live too far from Northbrook to come to my office or maybe your schedule make it difficult to build in travel time. Some people always use telephone or online therapy sessions, others generally come in to my office and only use these types of sessions when they or their child is sick.
I am happy to work with you in whatever way works best and there have been many studies that show “telemental health” is as helpful as face to face consultations.
Unfortunately, because my professional license is only valid for the state of Illinois, I am only able to work with people who live within Illinois state borders.
If you chose to have online sessions you will need a webcam and video conferencing software on your computer or smart phone. Please set up your account ahead of time and we can add each other as online contacts prior to the session. Either download the free software than search for me the Vsee directory using my email address firstname.lastname@example.org or ask me to send you an invitation to connect on Vsee.
Take time before our first session to test that the software and your webcam work from your computer. Also, chose a place that had some privacy and a good internet connection.
Paperwork can be found on the Forms Page and must be completed before our first session.
Forms can be completed online via a secure, encrypted portal or if you prefer, you can print out the forms and fax them to 847 562-9352 or scan in and email to email@example.com.
Please complete all these forms:
Assessment Questionnaire, Patient Information Sheet, HIPAA form, any of the symptom checklists that are relevant and the credit card form.
* Payment is by credit or debit card.
