COVID-19 Policy

Due to conditions caused by COVID-19 I am currently providing telehealth only. Telehealth is a service that uses technology to provide services from a distance without having to meet in-person. Video chatting and phone calls are the current options, whereas messaging or live texting are not. I’ve been providing telehealth since 2011 and have found services I provide work well with this modality.

Many insurance plans and EAPs that previously did not allow telehealth as a covered service are currently allowing it during current conditions.  I am in-network for most commercial insurances and EAPs in the mid-Missouri area and in some circumstances I can practice outside of Missouri. If you are concerned about coverage we can discuss financials.

Telehealth has increasingly become a valuable option for many people for a variety of reasons. Pros and cons of telehealth can be found on the Telehealth Informed Consent form, which is required before starting. Video chatting is preferred rather than just a voice call and in some cases the only option. If you are unable or unwilling to use video chatting or a phone call for sessions we can discuss what you can do alternatively.

Be sure your correct email is on file with me. This is how a link to our video chat will be sent.  If you have any payment responsibility such as a co-pay, the invoice will also be sent to your email on file.
