Hans is now offering Online Therapy!  SCHEDULE TODAY!

Why Online Therapy?
Live far away, but want to meet with an experienced, highly qualified therapist?  Live in the mountains or plains and don’t have many options for counseling in your area?  Want to come in to the office, but are too busy and you can’t make time?  Or perhaps you need to take care of children, or an elderly parent, and need to be at home.  Internet therapy is also a great alternative for people who have chronic pain, or health conditions that make it difficult to travel.  Internet therapy makes it possible to access services from the privacy of your own home, anywhere within Colorado.


What technology do I need for internet therapy?

There is no need to buy special software for you computer.  You will need a high speed internet connection, and it is good to test out your connection speed ahead of time. You can click on this link to test your connection.  You can also click the link to this Pre-Call Tool, to test your video/audio before the call.  You can also use your smartphone by using the telehealth app.  Go to your App Store and type in the title “Telehealth by Simple Practice” to download the free app.  This online therapy system is HIPAA compliant, and sessions are not recorded.  Before your first online session, you will be sent an email with a link that you can click on. This link will take you to the virtual “telehealth office”.


How to get started with Online Therapy?  

New clients who wish to start using online therapy services can schedule the first appointment over the phone, or using the online scheduling tool.  If you schedule online first, I will contact you by phone before your first session.  We will discuss your specific concerns ahead of time. It may be necessary to have an in-office session first, depending on your situation.  In general, one in-person appointment will be scheduled at least every 6 months, while internet therapy continues. In-person sessions help determine if online services are appropriate, and whether current online therapy is helpful.  Current traditional therapy clients can access telehealth online therapy services at any time, but may be requested to come in for an in-person appointment instead, as needed.

Feel free to contact Hans at any time if you have questions about starting Online Therapy services.
