Tele-health Therapy SErvices
We understand that the world around us seems to be changing at an hourly rate and B’well Counseling Services is grateful to be able to offer tele-therapy sessions to our community during this time.
We acknowledge and grieve that this is not how we desire to connect with our community, however in light of the greater need, we choose to prioritize the well-being of our local and global community over our personal preferences.
As space to process through anxiety, fear, anger, and confusion is needed now more than ever, B’well therapists have moved to holding this space for people online and discontinuing in-person services for the time being.
How does it Work?
Similar to our office setting sessions, we want to talk before we dive into a full session. B’well therapists will continue to offer no-fee 15-minute phone consultations to new clients.
If together we feel we are a good therapeutic fit, we then schedule our first session and have folks join our online practice portal to complete new client forms.
From there, we communicate with clients through email to confirm our “meeting” date and time and send the link for our tele therapy session.
What is the fee for tele-therapy?
Session fees vary by clinician and your therapist will make sure to discuss this in your initial phone consult. B’well Counseling is in network with BCBS CareFirst plans and continues to bill sessions to insurance.
We also understand that many people are experiencing financial distress at this time and in response, B’well therapists are working to provide free and low-fee resources to the community. We are also working with our clients who can’t afford co-pays for therapy appointments at this time. Please speak with your therapist about these options.
Is my privacy protected in tele-therapy sessions?
All therapists provide tele-sessions in a private space and through our TheraNest platform which is HIPAA compliant, ensuring the highest level of privacy and security for our clients. B’well therapists also all have additional training in telehealth so that we can competently serve our clients in the most informed and competent way possible.
We encourage our clients to participate in sessions from a place where they will not be disturbed and to ideally, use headphones for the session. If privacy is an issue, we encourage clients to take their sessions to the backyard or hop in the car (without driving!) as we check in. We understand the need to get creative in these times and encourage flexibility within the bounds of our clients’ comfort and privacy.
