About Telehealth Services

Telehealth counseling is an excellent way to get help that is convenient, secure, and time-sensitive. Virtual counseling is as effective as in-person counseling and clients have found the convenience and safety to be added benefits.
Telehealth services provided by Ear To Hear Consulting and Counseling, PLLC therapists include the use of a private, HIPPA-Compliant telehealth platform Simple Practice through which confidential counseling services are delivered.
In preparation for your confidential counseling session, please ensure:

  1. You are in a safe place, alone in a room, with the door closed

  2. Your computer has a stable and secure internet connection

  3. You have cleared your browser history prior to starting and after completing the counseling session

  4. You are wearing headphones or earbuds that have an integrated microphone

  5. You have no other browsers or applications running on the computer while in your counseling session
