WHY ONLINE THERAPY?
Our practice has operated exclusively online since 2018. We have a deep understanding of how to practice teletherapy meaningfully and effectively, to the benefit of our clients. Teletherapy has many added benefits, namely the ability to access treatment at your convenience, cut out travel time, time off work, and ultimately expense. Whether you desire convenience, privacy, the comfort of your own home, connecting without travel barriers, or feel uncomfortable or marginalized in the traditional counseling setting, our practice was built with you in mind.
WHAT ARE THE TECHNOLOGY REQUIREMENTS FOR ONLINE THERAPY?
You will need a computer, tablet, or smartphone with a camera, microphone, a stable internet or cell network connection, and a safe, private space to conduct your sessions. Internet speeds of 1.5 Mbps and cell service connections of 4G and greater are typically sufficient. You can check your internet speed for free at fast.com.
DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE?
In Idaho, we accept most major commercial insurance carriers. In Montana, we operate on a private-pay basis, and will provide you with a bill to submit to your insurance company; in most cases, your insurance company will reimburse you for at least a part of our services. We do not accept Medicaid or Medicare.
While we do not offer a sliding fee scale, we will work with you to develop a payment plan agreement that meets your budget.
WILL MY INSURANCE COVER TELETHERAPY?
We have been billing insurance for teletherapy since 2018. While there are specific plans that may not cover telehealth, due to the covid-19 pandemic, those plans have become very few. Most plans cover telehealth at the same rate as in-office healthcare services. Call our office and we will look up your insurance benefits. In most cases, we can provide you with an accurate estimate of your out-of-pocket costs. You can also call the number on the back of your insurance card for benefit info.
WHO DO YOU TREAT?
We treat individuals, couples, and families located anywhere in Montana, Idaho, and outside of the USA. Due to our online format, we have a minimum client age of 12 years old--younger children are typically best served by an in-office setting.
HOW DO I KNOW IF YOU ARE THE RIGHT THERAPIST FOR ME?
Finding the right therapist is very important. If, at any point in your therapy, you or your clinician feels that you would be better served by another therapist, we will work to find you referrals to one who meets your needs. It's important to us that you find the right therapist for you.
WHAT ARE YOUR SPECIALTIES?
Aside from specializing in online therapy, our clinicians have many of their own individual specialties. Some of these are: neurodiversity, autism, ADHD, ENM/CNM in relationships, LGBTQIA+, anxiety, trauma, women's issues (including postpartum struggles), couples, parenting, and more. Please refer to our individual clinicians' pages for more information about each of their specialties.
