Lights, Camera, Telehealth

The system I am using is called doxy.me and it allows you to connect, using a smart phone, tablet, or computer (with a camera and microphone) without downloading an app. It is secure and protects your private information. I have used it for the last couple of years with clients who had mobility impairments and during heavy winter storms when travel wasn't safe. It has worked well in these limited applications.

You will want to find a place where you can have the session with the privacy you need to talk about all the things you would in my office. Remember that sometimes you will have emotional responses to the therapy work you do; make it as comfortable a place as you can and you may want to bring tissues. Please do not try to have a session from your favorite coffee shop.

You will need to have a device to connect: a smart phone, a tablet, or a computer with a microphone/headset and a camera. Most laptops work well; an inexpensive headset with microphone usually improves the audio considerably. You will need an internet connection; a data connection on a smart phone works though you may be paying data charges. And you will need an internet browser -- I've had success with all the major browsers.

I strongly suggest you try out the connection before our first video session. When you are ready to try it, open your favorite browser and use this link: https://doxy.me/allenburnslpcc


And that is the same link you use to connect when you are ready for the session.

That's really all there is to it.

May you be peaceful, healthy, happy, and joyful.  Allen
