Your care and safety is our highest priority. In March 2020, we decided to transition all in-person counseling appointments to online therapy services. In light of the Coronavirus/COVID-19 concerns, we felt that it was essential to help flatten the curve in spreading the virus. Since transitioning all our clients to online therapy, Ohio has been issued a Stay-At-Home order. We will continue online counseling services indefinitely.

At Rebirth Counseling and Therapy Services, you can have a therapy session from the comfort and privacy of your own home or a place where you are safe. With our online counseling, you can access your therapist from your desktop, laptop, smartphone, or tablet.

What is Online Counseling?

Online counseling has a few names, telehealth, telemental health, virtual counseling, or online therapy. We use these words interchangeably because they mean the same thing. Online therapy makes it possible for people to receive counseling services if they cannot meet with their provider face to face. Clients can participate in individual or couples counseling from home, work, or any location that both the client and clinician agrees is appropriate.

Online Therapy & Insurance

The Ohio Department of Medicaid declared an expansion of telehealth services to Medicaid recipients throughout the state. This expansion allows telehealth and telephonic (telephone) sessions for individuals who are unable to access the internet or use telehealth services. Also, HIPAA requirements were relaxed, allowing providers to use platforms such as Skype, Facetime, or Google Duo. This expansion allows providers to use telehealth not only with established clients but also with new clients.
Most commercial insurance companies are also covering telehealth for counseling and therapy sessions for both new and established clients.
Here is the list of insurances that we take and have confirmed cover telehealth:

  • CareSource
  • Medical Mutual
  • Molina
  • Paramount
  • United Healthcare (Commercial and Community)
  • Buckeye
  • UHC
  • Anthem
  • Cigna
  • UMR

 

Getting ready for your online counseling session

Preparing for Online Counseling is easy. When you schedule your appointment, you will be sent a unique link to login on a computer, tablet, or smartphone. Here are tips that can help prepare for your online therapy session.

  • (Recommended, but not required) Set up your device on a table or resting comfortably on a solid surface. This will allow you to talk hands-free. You may be asked to participate in a written activity or may want to take notes. It may also feel more comfortable with the online counseling experience.
  • Be Fully Dressed; remember this is a professional relationship. We want you to be comfortable, and also, please be presentable. Don’t worry. 
  • Make sure your space has adequate lighting. The therapist must be able to see you. Sometimes being in front of a window will cause a glare. You can adjust by closing curtains or shades to reduce glare or sitting in front of a light, solid-colored wall.
  • To maintain privacy and help with call quality, we recommend using headphones, earbuds, or air pods.
  • Log on in advance to test audio and video. Arriving early to your session will help us to detect if there are any technical issues. If you are noticing any problems, let your therapist know right away.
  • Be honest about any safety or concerning issues such as thoughts of wanting to die because of depression, recent domestic violence, feeling unsafe in your home. Mention concerns earlier in the appointment rather than addressing towards the end of the session. Your safety is essential to us.
