Rules for Telehealth Sessions

Please come to your session with a few things in mind. Telehealth is the same as a regular session, so the same rules apply.

Please do not:

  • drink alcohol

  • smoke anything

  • lay in bed

  • drive a car

  • walk around your house

  • log in from work with your co-workers waving in the background

  • be in a public place such as the grocery store or the doctors waiting room

  • eat

  • text other people while in session

  • invite other family members or friends to the session

A few things to be mindful of:

  • what other people are doing in your background

  • if someone calls or texts you during our session, we may lose sound and/or video connection

  • if you are holding your phone, it is in constant motion which can make it difficult for your therapist to remain focused. And it makes us seasick!

I am sure as time goes on, we will all adapt to this new format of treatment. We feel blessed that we get to continue treatment with our patients at this time. If you have any other suggestions for our list, please feel free to let us know!
