Is Virtual Therapy Secure and Private?
We respect your right to privacy. Not only do we protect your privacy by never disclosing information about your session to anyone, we also protect your data with highly secure technology platforms that store your documents and data that we have on file in a manner meeting the most stringent regulations, such as HIPAA.
As well, not all video conferencing technologies that are available through the internet are necessarily compliant with important regulations such as HIPAA. The video conferencing tools that we use at Psych Company for our online therapy sessions are secure and compliant with privacy laws and regulations. We are open and flexible to using a virtual therapy platform of your choosing, but in that case, we cannot guarantee the same online security. Some of our clients prefer to use the phone or Facetime for example for their online counseling.
