We know the pressures brought on by quarantine, and fear of the COVID-19 pandemic can be challenging to manage.
You are not alone. Schedule an online therapy session today.
Dear CMC Therapy Family and Friends,
We hope this finds you well, safe, and healthy. We understand that this time of uncertainty can be a challenge for many, and we want to make sure we are here to support you in whatever way we can. We are currently offering telehealth sessions through a secure, HIPAA compliant online platform so that you can still have access to your mental health needs from the comfort of your own home.
If you are interested in scheduling an in-person session, please reach out to us via phone at (954) 533-5827 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can determine if that is the best fit. Our main concern is that we keep our community safe and healthy, so we just want to make sure we are taking all precautions to ensure that.
If you have any questions about how our online therapists can help you, please reach out to us. We are hopeful to see better times and are looking forward to opening our doors again for workshops and events for the community soon.
What is Online Therapy?
Online Therapy (i.e., telehealth, e-therapy, e-counseling, teletherapy, or cyber-counseling) is therapy that happens virtually. You meet with your online therapist and conduct business as usual. The difference? You can hang out on your couch in your house instead of in your therapist's office!
Why Is Online Therapy Important?
During this crucial time of COVID-19, CMC Therapy is here to stay connected with you. Through the use of our HIPAA compliant Telehealth system, we can have our session virtually. We don’t want you to feel alone at a time where human connection is so important.
You know, we get it. Times are really strange right now. Regardless of if you're an introvert or an extrovert, you probably miss seeing people in real life. At first, seeing your online therapist on your monitor might feel a little different. But, we've found that our clients end up enjoying it! Additionally, research tells us that online therapy is often just as effective as in-person therapy.
So, we can still help you. Will it look a little different? Perhaps. Will you still reach your therapeutic goals and receive quality services? We'll pull out all of the stops to make sure that happens.
Online Therapy 101: What You Need To Know
Is Online Therapy right for me?
If you've read this far on the page, therapy itself is probably a good choice for you. Granted, you may not have opted for online over in-person therapy previously. But, we're all learning to be more flexible, right? Due to the recent development of COVID-19, being able to talk to an online therapist about what you’re feeling and experiencing can be extremely helpful. And at the end of the day, that's what we're here to do: to help!
Is this a secure portal?
Yes, our Telehealth service is HIPAA compliant and everything remains confidential and it is a safe place.
What about paperwork?
All documentation is secure and kept in your client portal.
Do I have privacy in my session with my online therapist?
If you are able to get 50-60 minutes of time by yourself, then yes. CMC Clinicians will be following the ethics of confidentiality. This means that we will guarantee that we talk about in therapy will stay between us.
How will I pay for online therapy?
CMC Therapy makes paying for your session simple! Our system collects your credit card information at the same time you book your appointment, so you don’t have to worry about the exchange post-session.
How will I know what online therapist works for me?
At CMC, we have an incredibly skilled and caring team of therapists. All of our therapists have a wide variety of experiences and different knowledge bases. So really, you can't go wrong with any of them! If you would rather have a conversation with a human when deciding which therapist to work with, our Client Care Coordinator is happy to help! Give them a call at (954) 533-5827. They'll help you get connected with the right therapist!
