Our video counseling service allows Alliant Therapy Group practitioners to hold online, real-time therapy sessions through the use of interactive audio and video technology. We offer video counseling as a way to improve access to mental health care and overcome barriers such as inclement weather, illness, mobility restriction, transportation challenges, and childcare. Our secure video platform is HIPAA-compliant and every effort is made to protect your confidentiality. When providing these services, our counselors are required to be in a private and confidential space. It is suggested that you be in an environment that is conducive to privacy to ensure confidentiality on your end.
Counseling sessions using electronic transmission are treated the same as face-to-face sessions. In accordance with standard practice, they are regarded as effective as in-office visits and are billed as such by ATG. However, some states do not allow third-party payment (i.e. health insurance). For clients not using insurance, fees are the same as in-person visits.
Alliant Therapy Group, by law, is bound to the state of Washington and may only provide services within the state. In order to participate in tele-counseling you must be a resident of Washington state. We do require that the first appointment be in person at one of our office locations with an intake specialist to help determine goals and appropriateness for tele-counseling services, as well as to find the best fit with one of our counselors.
