Teletherapy

Nearly all of our services are currently provided by telehealth, in order to protect you, your loved ones, our staff, their loved ones, and our community. The office is closed to most in-person appointments. Our goal is to continue to safely serve our clients and our community, in accordance with current Department of Health guidelines, which require us to provide services by telehealth whenever possible.

CBPS has decided to offer and provide teletherapy to all of our current clients, regardless of your insurance coverage for teletherapy, at the same cost to you as in-person therapy, while the office is closed to in-person appointments. You do not need to worry about any extra costs beyond your normal copayment (or deductible). We feel that this is the least we can do to support you and the community at this time.

CBPS teletherapy uses a videoconferencing app for HIPAA-compliant, encrypted communication between the therapist and your computer, smartphone, or tablet. With the app, you simply join the online session with an ID number provided by your therapist.

If you need to schedule an appointment, you may schedule teletherapy appointments on the Book An Appointment page of our website.

Before your first teletherapy appointment, please follow these teletherapy instructions to add the free Ringcentral Meetings app to your phone or computer and to prepare for your appointment. Also, please complete the Consent to Treatment Teletherapy Addendum form, and return it to us however is easiest for you (by mail, by fax, or by email). You can complete it digitally or print it. Taking a photo or screenshot of the completed, signed form and emailing it to us is fine.

We understand that this may be a stressful time, and we hope that using telehealth to meet with your therapist in the safety and comfort of your own home will give you peace of mind. We are still here for you, by phone and online, working from our homes nearby. Please don’t hesitate to contact us. We are all in this together. Thank you for your flexibility as we all adjust to protect the health of our community.
