Nationwide TeleHealth Counseling

Video Counseling & Coaching Sessions

Telehealth allows you to have confidential counseling sessions through HIPAA compliant video calls.

Telehealth might serve you well if:

  • You live a long distance from Spokane
  • You’re working out of town
  • Bad weather in the winter makes the trip unsafe
  • Construction in the summer makes the trip too long
  • You’re away at college
  • You are in a family crisis and can’t get away
  • Your childcare has fallen through at the last minute
  • You are disabled or unable to make it into the office
  • Or, today, it would just be more convenient for you

Ask your therapist about your TeleHealth options and benefits that gives you more access and support.

Healthy Counseling Center in Spokane, Washington is happy to announce our providers are now allowed to use telemedicine with patients throughout the United States. Counselors licensed in the state of Washington may provide therapy across state lines using telehealth.

You might be interested in telehealth for the counseling needs in your family or workplace. For example, we have a patient in North Idaho spending more time coming to a counseling session or getting home from a counseling session than actually receiving therapy. Telehealth would save time and money, as well as safety on the freeway in the wintertime.

Another patient worked the Alaska north slope for two weeks, then came home for two weeks to get as many counseling sessions as possible before he left again. Telehealth could be scheduled to stop all the travel.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Health Resources and Services Administration defines telehealth as “the use of electronic information and telecommunication technologies to support long-distance clinical health care, patient and professional health-related education, public health and health administration.” Healthy Counseling Center uses Doxy.me.

The term “telehealth” is used instead of alternative terms such as “telemedicine” because the term better represents diverse health related services including behavioral health, substance use treatment, counseling, psychotherapy, employee assistance programs, and more.

Therapists at Healthy Counseling Center help our patients through clinical treatments, assessments and testing, case management, and consultation with other professionals.

Many people live in places under served by mental health services. Now in the comfort and safety of their own homes, those people can have access to great care and growth through Healthy Counseling Center’s telehealth services.

Medical insurance has been the most significant barrier to the implementation of telehealth nationwide. As of 2017, 48 state Medicaid programs are reimbursing for synchronous video-based telehealth. Fortunately, the passage of telemedicine legislation in Washington (WAC 182-531-1730) has provided a pathway for state agencies to pay for telehealth services and implement local policies, thereby more broadly expanding telehealth-based services in our state.
