FAQs about online therapy in Colorado
What is online therapy or Telehealth?
Many behavioral health therapists refer to online therapy as Telehealth. Due to the increased need for distanced healthcare services, Telehealth has become a popular term.
Telehealth, or online therapy, refers to any sort of mental health services where you meet with your counselor using electronic communication. Online therapy is designed to make services accessible for everyone, regardless of location. It empowers you to meet through audio and video over the Internet. This reduces barriers common to seeking out therapy including, transportation issues, commute time, childcare challenges, convenience, Colorado weather, and general life balance.
How does online therapy work?
Unless other arrangements are made, RAFT’s counseling sessions are conducted via Simple Practice. Of course, this is a HIPAA compliant video platform that works like Zoom.
Before your appointment, you will receive a link to a website. Click on it when your appointment time is scheduled to start. You can use the camera and audio on your computer or mobile device. If you prefer, you can also download the Telehealth by SimplePractice app for free if you are using a mobile device. Here are the links to the Simple Practice Telehealth App for both Android and Apple users.
