Achieve TeleMental Fitness!

TeleMental Health Expertise

 

With today's never-ending demands, many patients opt to participate in online videochat services.  The ever evolving landscape of healthcare is moving towards digitalized diagnostic and treatment protocols, and telemedicine (or telehealth) is fast becoming the foundation of tomorrow’s health service delivery structure.   Behavioral health care is no different, and Dr. Lauren is a pioneer in the field of telemental health (also known as telepsychotherapy or teletherapy).  A member of the American Telemedicine Association, she is one of the first psychologists to offer the service in Maryland and the very first private outpatient psychologist to specialize in doing so in Southwest Florida. 

Convenience and Confidentiality

This cutting edge trend in behavioral health care has been repeatedly shown by evidence-based research to be not only an effective modality for the provision of cognitive behavioral psychotherapy, but one that offers added convenience and confidentiality.   A secure HIPAA-compliant videoconferencing platform allows you to meet with Dr. Lauren from the privacy of your home, office, or wherever you feel most comfortable, and ensures that the communication is kept private.  

 

Such ease and discretion is especially attractive to:

 

  • Individuals and couples who prefer not to be seen entering or leaving a therapist’s office

  • Employees who wish to avoid drawing suspicion to their weekly doctor’s appointments 

  • Working and/or overextended parents who don’t have time to commute to or from one more location

  • College undergraduate and graduate students 

  • Elderly or disabled persons with limited mobility   

These services are available to adults 18 years and older who are interested in individual or couples psychotherapy.
