Northwest Holistic Therapies will provide 100% Telehealth-Only Therapy Services throughout the COVID-19 Global Pandemic. We care deeply about your health and safety while still providing you excellent holistic, trauma-informed therapy.
Northwest Holistic Therapies is a “hybrid” group practice which means our therapists offer both telehealth and in-person therapy services. Certain clients may prefer or require telehealth and others may prefer in-person sessions unless there is a personal or community-wide situation which makes meeting in-person difficult or impossible. Having telehealth as a back-up service in this case can allow both the client and the therapist to maintain the momentum necessary in therapy.
Northwest Holistic Therapies is sensitive to the need for mental health services to be made as accessible as possible during a time of increased stress caused by a community-wide emergency. These services are known by different names such as telemedicine, telemental health and telehealth. Research has shown that telehealth services provide similar efficacy of care as in-person sessions.
If a situation in our city or state prevents individuals from physically reaching our office (i.e., a severe weather event, an earthquake or quarantine due to a community outbreak, etc.) we will declare it an emergency and some or all sessions will shift to Telehealth services and clients will be notified by their therapist. This will remain available until the community issue is resolved and clients return to their in-person sessions.
To make it as accessible and as convenient as possible, our clients will be able to access our Telehealth option via desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone. Telehealth includes phone calls, text, and email as well as video conferencing, but video conferencing is the preferred method. We will work with you to find the best method for your situation.
