During this time of social distancing, Heather is offering video sessions for clients that are uncomfortable with coming into the office. This allows her to also offer services to individuals across the state of Nebraska, rather than just within the Lincoln area!
Video sessions (also known as "telehealth") involve conducting counseling sessions through a live video connection (similar to FaceTime or Skype). Heather uses a HIPPA compliant platform to ensure confidentiality and security. No special app or software is required! Heather will text or email you a secure link to the session at your scheduled appointment time, and you're good to go! All you need is an internet connection, web browser, and a quiet place to talk.
While most insurances are covering this service, please contact Heather if you are interested in scheduling a video session, and she will verify your benefits to make sure this is included in your specific plan. Heather understands that the current state of affairs can definitely be anxiety provoking, and she seeks to provide consistent support without interruption during this time!
