Online Therapy for
Adults & Couples
in Fort Lauderdale, FL
Convenient & Confidential
Life can get hectic for many reasons. You feel pulled in so many directions and stressed by not having enough time in the day. Depending on your work schedule, lifestyle, and personal needs, telehealth or online counseling can be a convenient option to get the help and support you need at a time that is convenient for you.
Telehealth is an ideal option for busy professionals, stay at home parents and caregivers, new moms with infants at home, and homebound clients with disabilities, too. According to research, online counseling can be just as effective as traditional face-to-face sessions at the office.
Online counseling actually offers a lot of unique benefits. Let's face it, driving to an office for a face-to-face counseling session can be time-consuming and sometimes not possible depending on your work schedule, travel plans, or family situation. That's why we offer online counseling for our clients who desire the convenience of scheduling sessions from their homes.
Technology assisted counseling is offered via phone or video conferencing using a secure, HIPAA compliant platform. Contact us at 954.391.5305 ext. 1 to speak with our Client Care Coordinator and connect with an expert therapist who can help you reach your goals through online counseling options.
COVID-19 (Coronavirus) & Telehealth
Your health, safety, and well-being are our main focus.
We get it... the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has thrown everyone off balance and we're all working to adjust to our new norms. With so many changes all happening at once, it's extremely stressful and overwhelming.
Although many are participating in social distancing at home, that doesn't mean we need to remain isolated. It's more important than ever to stay connected to sources of support such as healthy friends and family.
Therapy is a wonderful resource to help you mentally and emotionally during a time with so many unknowns. Your therapist can help you focus on what's in your control and what you can do about your situation instead of getting overwhelmed by all of the things that are changing and completely out of your control.
We're adapting and you can too...
With the recent developments of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we offer an alternative option to maintain therapeutic support while adhering to social distancing recommendations or quarantine mandates (if applicable).
Due to recent events and increasing concerns about COVID-19, telehealth sessions are a healthy alternative to an office visit. Please factor in your understanding of your unique health needs and the needs of your loved ones when deciding whether to pursue office versus telehealth visits.
Online counseling is especially helpful for anyone who is in the "at risk" category being over 60+ years old or having an underlying health condition.
Many are participating in social distancing, which we prefer to think of as physical distancing since there are still many ways to stay connected virtually. Online counseling is one of the ways you can stay connected and get the support you need safely from the comfort of your own home.
If you are in forced quarantine due to you or someone close to you testing positive for COVID-19, online counseling would be the best option for you to continue getting the mental health support you need while being stuck at home.
If you are in the “high risk” category due to any of the below situations, please talk with your therapist about online counseling.
If you have tested positive for COVID-19.
If you are exhibiting symptoms such as a fever, cough, sore throat, or trouble breathing within the last 48 hours.
If you have been directly exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.
If you have traveled to any of the COVID-19 hot spots or traveled by plane internationally within the last two weeks.
If you have gone on a cruise within the last two weeks.
If you are having flu-like symptoms and have not already contacted your primary care physician, please do so immediately.
If you are in the “high risk” categories above, please contact your therapist to discuss options for continued support via online counseling or to reschedule your session.
Thank you for helping us stay healthy so we can continue to support our community.
We're taking the following precautionary measures for "low risk" clients who want to continue seeing their therapist in office:
After each session, your clinician is spraying the office with disinfecting spray for soft surfaces
After each session, your clinician is wiping hard surfaces with disinfecting wipes (including the office door handle)
Disinfecting wipes, disinfecting spray, and hand sanitizer is available to each client to use in office
Restrooms have disinfecting hand soap and paper towels available for use
All team members are following the 20 second guidelines for hand washing
If you have questions about how the communal space is cleaned, ask your therapist
What we're asking of clients who are coming to sessions in office:
If you are doing any domestic or international travel—inform your clinician. Based on the safety level of your destination, you may be asked to not come to your appointments in person and transition to online sessions for two weeks.
If anyone in your close circle of friends, family, colleagues, or neighbors have traveled domestically or internationally—inform your clinician. Based on the safety level of the destination, you may be asked to not come to your appointments in person and transition to online sessions for two weeks.
If, at any point, there is a quarantine impacting your clinician, the offices of Bayview Therapy, and/or your neighborhood, all visits will occur online.
There is a lot of information about COVID-19 aka the coronavirus. Bayview Therapy does not take the position of providing medical advice; therefore, to educate yourself, please visit the following links:
There is no right or wrong way to feel about COVID-19. If you have a low level of concern, you are not under-reacting; and, if you are concerned and taking precautions and/or cancelling travel, you are not overreacting. If at any point between sessions you notice a level of fear or anxiety that is concerning to you or difficult to manage, please reach out by phone to discuss setting up a session.
