To meet the needs of clients that are busy with careers, family, or travel Covenant Way Clinical Counseling offers Teletherapy as an option for counseling. Some of the frequently asked questions include:

What is Teletherapy?
Teletherapy is providing therapy through a live video connection, over the internet. You provide the same treatment as you would in person, it’s just done through a computer! If you’ve ever used Skype on your computer or FaceTime on your iPhone, you’ve used the same type of technology Teletherapy uses.
Will my insurance or EAP cover Teletherapy? most plans consider Teletherapy as reimbursable. Although most companies embrace Teletherapy, it is important to verify with your insurance company so that you are aware of any additional charges or uncovered expenses. 
How long are the sessions? A Treatment Plan is developed for you the same as if you attended a session in our office. The length of the session will depend upon your individual Plan of Care. 
When is Teletherapy not appropriate? If you are suicidal or experiencing a mental health crisis Teletherapy is not appropriate. 
What hours/days is Teletherapy available? Sessions scheduled for Teletherapy are available as early as 7 am or as late as 9 pm Monday-Saturday depending upon the availability of staff.
