Video Telehealth

Secure Video Telehealth Counseling with a Mental Health Professional

Our office is currently providing services via video telehealth sessions. This is being done securely through our Athena EHR. You will receive a system generated reminder based on your communication preference (email and/or text) with your appointment information and a link to join your session. You can also access this information on your patient portal. Please be ready 5 minutes before your session in a private room or location with access to a computer, phone or tablet that has an internet connection, video camera with microphone capabilities, and ideally Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge (though other browsers will work). Feel free to text or call us at 541-868-2004 anytime.
