What is telehealth?

Telehealth allows you to receive treatment from Tubre Psychological Services LLC without visiting in person. The secure technology is available via your laptop, smartphone, tablet, or desktop computer. It’s fully encrypted, so no one can listen in, and it complies with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) for your security.

You can make a telehealth appointment over the phone or by completing the online appointment request form. Having a reliable internet connection, you can attend your meeting from home, work, or when traveling. When the appointment arrives, simply log in to the virtual waiting room, and Dr. Tubre will join you.

How does telehealth benefit me?

Telehealth offers several notable benefits, starting with convenience. You don’t have to bother traveling to a face-to-face meeting; there are no fuel charges, parking, or public transport fares to pay. You also save by not having to arrange cover for work or caring responsibilities to allow for traveling time.

Telehealth is perfect if you have a disability or chronic health problem that complicates traveling. It’s also ideal for those living out-of-town, and you don’t have to risk infection with colds and the flu by exposing yourself to other people’s germs.

Telehealth is especially suited to patients with mental health problems. Leaving your safe environment can be very stressful when you’re sick and even impossible if you have a severe psychiatric disorder. Telehealth ensures you get the expert care you need without enduring unnecessary stress.

What conditions are suitable for telehealth treatment?

Most mental health disorders are suitable for treatment via telehealth, including:

  • Major depressive disorder (depression)
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

You can also get help for emotional problems such as anger or low self-esteem and challenging life changes like a job loss, the death of someone close, or a severe health condition.

Dr. Tubre uses various approaches to therapy, selecting the ones she feels best suit your needs. She specializes in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, and integrative behavioral couples therapy (IBCT).
