This practice uses a secure and HIPPA compliant video conferencing platform for your therapy sessions.
My goal is to provide my clients with easy access to confidential, convenient, and consistent therapeutic support. I've sought specific training and certification to offer telehealth services with best practices.
A reliable internet connection is necessary and your counseling sessions can be facilitated on a smartphone, computer, or tablet.
I do ask that you are in a private location for our meetings so that you feel comfortable sharing your story.
Sarah's certification in Telemental Health Treatment (i.e. telehealth; video sessions) has provided additional skills and knowledge on how to conduct psychotherapy via video, and be effective!
Sarah creates warmth and connection through video effectively and is up to date on all policies and practices related to providing telehealth treatment, including double-encryption and secured communication through video, phone, text, and email.

And you want to start working on yourself.
No reliable transportation?
And want to attend therapy sessions on consistent schedule.
And want to attend therapy with a provider in a different city.
Travel throughout the state for work?
And you want to keep regular appointments with your therapist.
Difficulty leaving the house?
And the idea of therapy from home sounds appealing.
Insurance + Telehealth
Please check with your insurance to see if telehealth for behavioral health counseling is covered by your insurance plan.
*If your insurance DOES NOT cover telehealth sessions with Sarah O'Brien, LCSW, you can pay out-of-pocket for telehealth services regardless of insurance coverage.*
Ask your insurance about the following:
1) meeting a separate deductible for telehealth services
2) higher copay for telehealth services
3) not covering telehealth services at all
4) only covering telehealth services with insurance-specific platforms or 'telehealth providers.' For example: TeleDoc
FUN FACT: Sarah enjoys reading books for fun (historical fiction & mystery) as way to take a break from screen time.
