Counseling can help improve your quality of life.

How do you protect my privacy?
We partner with VSee, a completely secure and HIPAA compliant platform.
HIPAA is a federal law that protects the privacy of your personal health information. At the same time, it allows health care providers and certain related operations enough access to the information they need to do their jobs effectively. HIPAA includes several rules and provisions that set guidelines and requirements for the administration and enforcement of HIPAA.
The relevant ones for the implementation of health information technology and the exchange of protected health information in an electronic environment are the Privacy Rule and the Security Rule, as well as the HITECH Act which further enforced the two in 2009. See more: https://vsee.com/hipaa

Contact us via the web form. You can cancel your account at any time. If you have a scheduled appointment, we request 24 hour notice before you are scheduled to see your therapist.
