Resilient Kids is proud to now offer Teletherapy for families living in Delaware!
Teletherapy or video counseling is therapy done through a live video connection, over the internet. Clients can get the same type of counseling they could receive in person, it’s just done through a computer. If you’ve ever used Skype or FaceTime, you’ve used the same type of technology teletherapy uses. Research on the teletherapy shows that video counseling is just as helpful as counseling done in person. Teletherapy is also very convenient and accessible, which helps people with consistency in counseling sessions.
We are in-network with Highmark Blue Cross and Amerihealth, however not all insurances cover teletherapy. For those commercial insurances that do, we can provide services under your insurance. Some clients may choose teletherapy as their primary mode of treatment, or use it as supplemental parental support.
Delaware law states teletherapy can only be provided by a therapist licensed in the State of Delaware, and the client must be a resident of Delaware. This means that students who have seen a therapist in-state can continue to see their same therapist while off at college as long as their primary residence remains in Delaware. The law also requires that one party be located in Delaware – the therapist may be out of the state, but then the client must be in Delaware (or vice versa).
