“Mental Health is not a destination, but a process. It’s about how you drive, not where you’re going.”
Blum Counseling Group strives to provide the top level of patient treatment programs, at any time and from anywhere. We understand that some struggles require urgent care even if that care has to come to you, and in the wake of the complications brought about by the COVID-19 Pandemic, we are proud to offer our safe and secure online services from the comfort and safety of your own home through Telehealth online services.
Telehealth, otherwise known as Telepsychology, Telemedicine, online therapy, or E-therapy, was developed in order to help mental health providers expand the reach of their services through accessible, online platforms available on smartphones, laptops, and tablets. Today more than 97% of the U.S. population owns a cellphone or smart device capable of live video conferencing and operating mobile health tracking apps and remote patient monitoring (RPM) systems used in telehealthcare. By adapting to online technologies, our practice can better accommodate busy work and travel schedules, or simply be there for you when you don’t feel like coming in.
In consideration of the COVID-19’s novel Delta Variant, we believe that Telehealth can help everyone continue social distancing to help reduce the spread WITHOUT forgoing your mental health and self-care. Being able to access our services online also means not having to cancel your appointment even if you believe you’ve been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, and still keeping appointments without having to find accommodations for child or pet care.
Telehealth and online therapy services may also be particularly helpful for clients who live outside of Miami or whose access to transportation may be limited, clients with busy work or life schedules, and those with physical or mobility disabilities or those who are immunocompromised in any way. We also understand the importance of being able to access therapy as soon as it becomes necessary; Telehealth allows our specialized therapists to provide patient care outside of their regular hours in order to suit your needs. Even as we transition to include online care, Blum Counseling remains committed to patient privacy. Our team uses HIPAA-compliant online aides to ensure that online therapy sessions remain as safe and secure as in-person ones.
