Online Therapy, sometimes known as Telehealth or Telemedicine, is a way of offering mental health care appointments through secure video conference when you are not able to visit your therapist at the clinic. 

Online therapy has been shown to be just as effective as in-person therapy, and our clinic offers a full range of telehealth services. Clients can access online therapy appointments via computer or tablet in the privacy of their homes.

Treatment for a variety of mental health issues including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, adjustment issues, anger, grief and loss, family and relationship issues, and transition challenges can be delivered through online therapy. 

Our therapists and staff have been trained to work with veterans and their families while delivering online therapy. All online therapy appointments follow our clinic guidelines and are confidential. 

Veterans

Veterans of the United States Armed Services, including the National Guard and Reserves,  regardless of role while in uniform, discharge status, or combat experience, with a focus on Post-9/11 Veterans. Veterans must be located in Pennsylvania.

Military Family Members

Parents, siblings, spouses or partners, adult children, caretakers, and others located in Pennsylvania.

Three reasons:

  • It's Convenient. Get easy access to care from the comfort of your own home. All you need is a smartphone, tablet, or computer with stable internet connection and video capabilities.
  • It's Consistent. Continue to receive treatment when unable to visit the clinic due to far distance, no transportation, work schedule, health problems, or other reasons.
  • It Works. Shown to be equally effective as in-person therapy, online therapy sessions provide the same high-quality, confidential care through a secure online platform

All you need is:

  • An appropriate device with a web camera, microphone and speakers, such as a computer (preferred), tablet, or smartphone
  • A stable internet connection
  • A private, secure space where you cannot be overheard/seen and at low risk for interruptions
