Telehealth At The DBT Center

Prior to your appointment you’ll receive a text confirming your appointment. Then you will also receive a link to connect to the session. You can discuss with your therapist when to expect the link. If you do not receive the link, please contact your therapist.

Please note that the effectiveness of Telehealth has been documented but there are times when your therapist may require in person sessions because they would be more effective for your goals. In our experience, telehealth is often less effective for adolescents.

For confidentiality purposes, we ask that you join your virtual session from a secure room where no one can overhear. Please know there are security risks to having online sessions and it’s more likely to have a breach with online services because of the internet connection. When you sign on to the internet session, you are giving permission for the therapist to work with you online.

If you have questions about the pros and cons of telemental health, please ask your therapist to discuss this with you.
