Tips for Telehealth

Do not disturb

Choose a quiet, private location that is free of distractions. To keep background noise to a minimum, close any doors and shut any windows.

Let in some sun

Allow for plenty of light in the room. Try to position yourself so the light source is in front of or above you, and not directly behind you.

Be tech savvy

It is preferable that you use a password-protected laptop or desktop computer for your sessions. If you don’t have access to a computer, you may use your smartphone or tablet. (Note: to use a smartphone, you must first download Zoom — available for iOS and Android in the app store.)

Have a backup

Keep your phone (or backup communication device) nearby in case we get disconnected. Silence or disable incoming notifications.

Find your zen

Get a glass of water or cup of tea ready prior to our session. Bring any completed homework assignments, questions, and/or concerns from the previous session. Make sure you’re comfortable and have a box of tissues nearby.

Spread the word

Let your family, friends, roommates, or others know that you will be unavailable for the duration of our session. If you have children, make sure they have games / activities / resources to keep them occupied. If you have pets, cameos are welcome and encouraged!
