Genesis is a private practice specializing in the assessment and treatment of neuropsychological deficits in children and adults. Some of the typical presenting concerns we work with include: Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, Learning Disorders, Depression, and Anxiety to name a few. Our assessments pave the way for targeted treatment and improvement for individuals of all ages. We operate from a positive framework in seeking to understand the strengths and weaknesses of our clients, and not simply their weaknesses.
Genesis offers secure (HIPAA level protected) Telepsychology Services for all therapy clients.
*During the shelter in place restrictions, we are currently conducting all sessions via secure video.
We are accepting new short-term therapy clients on a limited basis during this time.
We require clients to sign a Telepsychology Consent Form. Some important things to note regarding Telepsychology:
There are potential benefits and risks of video-conferencing (e.g. limits to patient confidentiality) that differ from in-person sessions.
Confidentiality still applies for telepsychology services, and nobody will record the session without the permission from the others person(s).
We agree to use the video-conferencing platform selected for our virtual sessions, and the psychologist will explain how to use it.
You need to use a webcam or smartphone during the session.
It is important to be in a quiet, private space that is free of distractions (including cell phone or other devices) during the session.
It is important to use a secure internet connection rather than public/free Wi-Fi.
It is important to be on time. If you need to cancel or change your tele-appointment, you must notify the psychologist in advance by phone or email.
We need a back-up plan (e.g., phone number where you can be reached) to restart the session or to reschedule it, in the event of technical problems.
We need a safety plan that includes at least one emergency contact and the closest emergency room to your location, in the event of a crisis situation.
If you are not an adult, we need the permission of your parent or legal guardian (and their contact information) for you to participate in telepsychology sessions.
You should confirm with your insurance company that the video sessions will be reimbursed; if they are not reimbursed, you are responsible for full payment.
As your psychologist, I may determine that due to certain circumstances, telepsychology is no longer appropriate and that we should resume our sessions in-person.
