You can receive counseling via your desktop, laptop, iPhone, iPad, or Android phone. You can also have therapy over any telephone if video therapy is not possible for you.
Safety, Privacy and Convenience
Video (and phone) Therapy are excellent alternatives to in-person counseling during the coronavirus pandemic.
Our therapists have training in this area and will advise you and answer any questions you might have. Video Therapy has always been a great choice for you if:
Traveling to and from counseling sessions is difficult
You feel more comfortable receiving counseling in the privacy of your own home
You have internet, a computer, web cab and microphone, or iPhone, iPad, or Android phone
You are 18 years of age or older and reside in Pennsylvania
Video Therapy has been around since the 1990s and studies
have shown it to be just as effective as face-to-face therapy. At Samaritan, we offer Video Therapy through an online video conferencing platform. Using HIPAA compliant, encryption software ensures the confidentiality of your sessions.
We also recommend that you choose a unique password, log off your computer at the end of every session, and establish a private, sound-proof area of your home.
To learn more and/or to schedule your video therapy appointment, please call us at 412.741.7430.
Insurance companies have agreed to cover Video and Telephone Therapy during the coronavirus pandemic.
