Telehealth Services

Napping baby?

School pickup coming up soon?

Busy workday?

Tons of after-school commitments?

No therapists near your home who have availability?



Video counseling is convenient and effective.  The research shows that therapy via videoconferencing is just as effective as in-person counseling, and sometimes even
more effective. This is because the more convenient therapy is, the more sessions you can have, and the more quickly you make progress.

If you have a private place to meet and a phone, computer or tablet with a strong internet connection, you or your child are ready to meet with one of our therapists. They are skilled at connecting and supporting their clients by video and can meet with clients anywhere in the state of Massachusetts. Please reach out—we are excited to meet you and begin to work towards your goals!


Common Questions about Telehealth

We know that online therapy can bring up questions or hesitations.  We are happy to put your mind at ease and provide further information about what to expect.

How Does Telehealth Work?

Your clinician will provide a link to their confidential ‘virtual waiting room.’  All you need to do is click on the link from your phone, tablet, or computer to talk with your therapist. It’s easy, convenient and feels almost as if you were in the same room together!

Is it confidential?

Absolutely.  Our therapists maintain strict confidentiality standards regardless of whether they are working with you in person or online. They work from their office at LPA or from a private area of their home.  Our platform is encrypted to the highest level of privacy, as required by HIPPA standards. 

I’m home with my family and don’t know if I have a private space to talk, any suggestions?

We have worked with clients who've connected while on a walk, in their car, or from their backyard. Our therapists can offer Telehealth sessions during a less busy time in your home. Sometimes using headphones or a white noise machine can also help provide more privacy.

I’m still not sure Telehealth is right for me—maybe I should wait until I can see a therapist in person?

It’s understandable to want to wait for an in-person provider, but you might be surprised at how much Telehealth can help! If you start with Telehealth and feel it's not right for you, our team will continue to work with you until we can schedule in-person sessions.  We care deeply about our clients and believe therapy by any method is better than struggling on your own.  Our goal as therapists is to prevent further suffering and to support long-term growth! 

Is Telehealth Effective?

Yes. There have been numerous studies showing the effectiveness of Telehealth.  A 2021 meta-analysis synthesized research from over 100 studies and found that therapy via videoconferencing was just as effective as in-person therapy.  The authors concluded that ‘Live psychotherapy by video emerges not only as a popular and convenient choice but also one that is now upheld by meta-analytic evidence.’

Since the pandemic, the Federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has concluded that:

“Telehealth is effective across the continuum of care for serious mental illness and substance use disorder, including screening and assessment, treatments, including pharmacotherapy, medication management, and behavioral therapies, case management, recovery supports, and crisis services.”
