A Happier, Healthier You
I am pleased to provide online assessments and therapy to clients who live in New Zealand. I use the most up-to-date encryption methods and software which is fully HIPAA and Privacy Act compliant. All sessions are private and are not recorded without the consent of both the client and the therapist.
Online therapy has many benefits, including that I'm available regardless of the current Covid-19 alert level, so you don't have to worry about missing a session. It's easy to schedule an appointment with me. Online appointments also mean no time spent driving to an appointment and no time sitting in a waiting room. Some people find it easier to talk to a therapist when the face-to-face aspect of traditional therapy is removed. Individuals with psychological or medical conditions which make it difficult to travel can now access care.
What services are offered online?
Currently, I am accepting appointments for online therapy and limited online psychological evaluations. Not all conditions are appropriate for online evaluation, so please contact me today to discuss your options.
What do I need to do to schedule an online appointment?
You should check your system requirements and download the appropriate software for your computer.
Once you have scheduled an appointment with me, I will email you some standard forms to complete prior to our session. Please send those back to me prior to our scheduled session date and time.
How do I access my online appointment?
On the day of our appointment, you will receive an email reminder of the session. At the appropriate time, click on the link in the reminder email and you should be connected.
What if I have problems connecting to my online session?
If there are any technical issues with the software (which are very rare!), we may mutually decide to either troubleshoot the issues, utilise other software, or reschedule the appointment. I can always be reached by phone and will be glad to talk you through the connection process.
What areas are served by online therapy?
Anyone who is currently living in Aotearoa New Zealand is eligible to schedule an online appointment. I am located in Napier, and I understand that there are many families who live in areas without a psychologist in their town. If you live outside of a major centre then you are likely already aware of how difficult it is to find a psychologist in your area.
Contact me today and we can work together to break the boundaries preventing you from accessing care and living your best life.
