To provide for continuity of care and serve our community during the COVID-19 National Emergency, some clinicians of NorthWest Ohio Psychological Services are available for virtual sessions -- teletherapy or telepsychology -- for individuals who are not able to receive services at our physical location.
To participate in teletherapy, you will need:
1. a reliable web connection on a computer or mobile device (smart phone).
2. a camera, speaker, and microphone (usually integrated in your device).
3. a private setting with a secure internet connection (and not public or free wi-fi).
4. to develop familiarity with your clinician's teletherapy platform.
Clinicians selected the platform and processes that work best and make the most sense for them. Note special instructions from your clinician regarding her/his availability for teletherapy.

Telepsychology services are available to individuals physically located in Ohio or Michigan at the time of the session; exceptions to this must be discussed in advance. We can send needed forms for your signature with DocHub or you can download, complete and return to us from here. All telepsych services requires Consent for Telepsych and an updated Consent for Treatment.
