Video-Based Internet Psychotherapy Services

For many clients who may not be able to make it into the office regularly for face-to-face sessions, due to travel and other commitments, or maybe those who would just prefer therapy from the privacy of their home, video-based psychotherapy might be a good option.

Currently, video-based psychotherapy services are only reimbursed by a few insurance companies and employee assistance programs. Most traditional medical insurance plans do not cover video-based psychotherapy.

If you are a current self-pay client, or you are considering self-pay, video-based psychotherapy might be something that would benefit you and your needs. Or, even if you are covered for in-office psychotherapy by your insurance company, you may want to self-pay for those times when you are not able to come into the office.

You must be a resident of Ohio, and actually be located in Ohio, at the time of the session. In Ohio, both the therapist and client have to be within the State at the time of the video-based session.

Dr. King uses Doxy.me which is a HIPAA compliant platform to provide video and sound for the session.   You are given a link to go to and will be in a virtual waiting room.   Dr. King will connect with you at the beginning of your session time.

If you are interested in inquiring about this service please call the office, send an email, or send a correspondence through the email link below.   Dr. King will call you back to discuss your situation and needs.
