Samson & Bulluss Psychology / Consulting operates through an online clinic, providing high quality psychology, coaching, and consultation direct to you. There is a growing research base demonstrating online therapy is just as effective as face-to-face therapy, which has allowed us to feel confident that we can offer the same high quality of service online as we would face-to-face. Our online clinic allows the convenience and flexibility of having professional support in your own home, which is ideal for people with busy schedules, mobility limitations, or who simply believe "there's no place like home". Your privacy is of the utmost importance to us, so we ensure our online forms and information storage systems are all encrypted, our telehealth consultations take place via a HIPAA compliant video conferencing system, and we use certified secure payment systems.
How do online sessions work?
Online sessions are conducted through a secure video chat platform called VSee. This works similarly to Skype or Zoom, but with HIPAA compliant end-to-end encryption to ensure privacy. In order to access online sessions, you will need:
· A computer, laptop, tablet, phone, or other electronic device with a camera, speaker, and microphone
· A quiet, private place where you feel comfortable to talk and won’t be interrupted
· A fast, reliable internet connection
Prior to your appointment you will be sent a link to download and install VSee on your device. At the scheduled appointment time you will receive a video call from your clinician. You can then connect, talk, and engage in therapy, coaching, or consultancy, all within the comfort of your own space.
How do I make an appointment?
The first step is to submit an expression of interest in connecting with either Rachel Samson or Erin Bulluss using our secure online forms. More information about this process and links to the online forms can be found here.
