Our therapists have the ability to provide Online Therapy. Because location isn’t a factor with online therapy, our therapists can offer this service over the internet to clients located both in the greater Denver area and throughout the state of Colorado. It is much like Skype or FaceTime but has much greater privacy and security protection.
PLEASE NOTE: Your first online therapy appointment can be set by our receptionist. Please call her Monday through Friday between 8:30 am and 5 pm, 303-986-4197.

Why Choose Teletherapy Over Traditional Therapy?
People work with online therapists for many reasons. Removing drive time and time in traffic is a common reason to seek help from online therapists. This can save money, too, by doing so, and it’s much easier for those without transportation or who have mobility challenges.
Online therapy may provided therapy access to some people living in rural areas or other places where access to therapists is unavailable. Some people simply prefer the digital climate to a face-to-face setting.
Teletherapy provides benefits similar to those of traditional therapy except that it is conducted from one computer screen to another rather than in person. Although it is a somewhat new therapy service, it is convenient, easily accessible, and cost-effective…and saves time as well.

What Is Online Therapy?
Online therapy is also known as eTherapy (or e-Therapy), teletherapy, video therapy, telehealth therapy, virtual therapy, and telemedicine therapy. Basically, teletherapy is therapy that is conducted via a two-way audio/video internet connection. Teletherapy technology is similar to Skype or FaceTime except that online therapy software used for teletherapy has privacy safeguards.
Is Online Therapy Covered by Insurance?
Teletherapy is covered by most insurance carriers to the same degree as face-to-face therapy. Unlike many teletherapists, our licensed therapists accept insurance coverages of all kinds.
