During the COVID-19 pandemic, you may be experiencing difficulties adjusting to a lack of structure or a new one. You are likely stuck at home, maybe with family members, feeling like you cannot breathe. Mental health conditions can be excerbated during these conditions and your usual coping skills are possibly out of reach. We are here to support you during this time.
Teletherapy through our platform is safe and can be conducted from the privacy of your own home. Research has shown that teletherapy is as effective and is comparible to in-person therapy, and our therapists provide the same high quality care through teletherapy as they do through in-person therapy. We are able to provide provide individual, family, relationship, and children/adolescent therapy through our teletherapy platform.
Teletherapy sessions can also be an option in the future rather than cancelling an appointment. Sometimes life gets busy and we are running short on time, you may need to leave town due to business travel, the weather may be too dangerous to travel to the office, etc. We at Chicago Psych Therapy Group strive to make your life easier for you by providing teletherapy as an option.
How Does Teletherapy Work?
We utilize a HIPAA compliant online platform. This application can be used through your phone, tablet, or computer.
It is important that you choose a private space for therapy that's free from distraction, interactions, and noise.
Most insurance companies cover teletherapy which is the good news.
The even better news - during COVID19, many insurance agencies are waving copays.
Check your insurance policy for your current coverage.
We also offer sliding scale for those without insurance coverage.
