Telehealth Services

At this time, I am only providing telehealth to help mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus as well as other respiratory illnesses. Telehealth involves having appointments via computer in a HIPAA compliant application known as DoxyMe. You simply click a link that I will provide as well as type in your name to be placed in my virtual waiting room. This will be explained verbally and on consent forms. I may resume in-office sessions at the appropriate time and will communicate to all when that is to occur. Please note that some services, such as psychological testing, may occur in person. If an in-person session occurs, I do request that you wear a mask.

Consultations are conducted by telephone before establishing telehealth (video) services. I do not provide telephone only sessions. A telephone session may occur if video is otherwise unavailable. During the consultation, it will be determined whether telehealth service is an appropriate and viable option for you. I am still open to new clients unless capacity dictates otherwise.

As with in-person sessions, you must be somewhere alone where no one can hear nor see you. This is for the protection of your healthcare information. You must be relatively stable to be appropriate for telehealth which is to say that you feel safe from harm to self or to others. In the event of a psychiatric emergency, you are encouraged to call 911, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-8255 [TALK]), or if feasible, go to the nearest hospital/medical emergency room. I will ask your location before the onset of every appointment.

You should use Chrome, Safari, or Firefox, as well as have a working microphone and camera for website performance. Make sure your Internet connection is strong. Everything else is the same as face-to-face.

Best Regard,

-Dr. Murphy
