TeleCounseling  -  First Session FREE
Counseling in Yuba City is creating the option of having your therapy session via your phone or computer. 
I will be using Doxy.me app if you want to explore to see how it functions.


TeleCounseling has been going well on the most part for the past three weeks, 04/03/2020.
Here is how to set up a new therapy appointment: Fill out the new client form  HERE
Your first session if free.
It will be through Doxy.me and will be an appointment to trouble shoot internet connection etc.
We will also sign documents at that time letting you know your rights on how records are kept, insurance billing information, fee agreement, office policy etc. 
I will attach the documents to an email sent to you prior to the session so you can print them.
We can review them during your sesssion.
You can sign the documents,
*scan and send back on an email
*Keep the ones indicated for you and return the signed ones to 1634 Poole Blvd, #400 Yuba City
(My office is in the Allstate Insurance office.) 
*or mail the completed copies to the address above.

TeleCounseling for You

Because of the spread of COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) I am implementint the choice of TeleCounseling instead of face-to-face in office counseling for a while. It is my hope that I can support you, and give you some guidance, regarding these uncertain times.
 I am in the process of establishing the ability to offer sessions via videoconferencing, or  teletherapy. I have installed Vsee app. When we are ready to have a session I will send a message either email or text whichever you prefer. The first session will begin 5 minutes early so we can get settled with the app etc. 
I will be confirming as usual. I am also notifying you of this option with the intention to do my part in protecting your health while responding proportionately to the actual risk. My goal is to reduce the chances of spreading this highly contagious illness.
 You will need to call your insurance to check on payment for telehealth. I have received notice from two already saying they will cover because of the national emergency declaration. Copays can be through PayPal or my website. When it comes to therapy, we are fortunate to have the option of switching to voice or video sessions if that's preferable, so that sessions can continue even when it is not advisable to meet in person. If you would prefer video sessions instead of coming in, even if you are not having symptoms, we can absolutely arrange for this. Let me know, so I can support you in any way possible, including answering all the questions you might have about teletherapy.

CONFIDENTIALITY:
According to California Law ALL information related to mental health is confidential, including the fact that you even attend counseling. This ensures your privacy. With Telecounseling all notes are kept on my personal confidential computer until I print them at my office and place them in your file folder under lock and key.
My computer, either at home or in office is totally private and confidential. While the Telecounseling is in session, I am the only one on this end and you are the only one on your end, unless you choose otherwise.
EXCEPTIONS:
Billing information to Insurance Companies, Victim of Crime Board, County Agency, or any other Agency involved in payment of your session fee.
MANDATED REPORTING LAW:
Therapists are mandated by California Law to report to the appropriate authorities any suspicion of the following;
*elder abuse          *child abuse                         *danger to self, others, or property
*inability to care for personal needs (dressing, eating, oriented to time and place)
*entered into a court case.
VOLUNTARY RELEASE:
You may release your own confidential information for certain purposes (e.g., working with a social worker, layer, etc.). This requires your signed permission and a record of released information is kept in your file.
COURT ORDER:
Records May be required for, and/or a therapist may have to testify in criminal or civil proceedings.
CONDIDENTIALITY IN THE COMMUNITY;
Small town concern; Since this is a small town/community and counseling is confidential, it may become awkward if we see each other in town. I will not acknowledge clients outside of the office. This is not meant to be rude or hurtful but rather to protect your privacy. If you say HI I will say HI back. In addition, if you know people who come to the agency for services, please respect their confidentiality and privacy by not discussing the fact they attend with anyone else.
 
I have read, discussed, and understand the above information. I understand the importance of confidentiality.
