Teletherapy & Consultations
What We Offer
Awakenings offers teletherapy throughout North Carolina and some consultations for appropriate situations out-of-state. Many people read our materials and blogs, listen to our director Laurie’s podcast FOREPLAY and then request our services when local resources do not offer the specialization that we provide.
Benefits of Teletherapy
Furthermore teletherapy allows busy people the flexibility of not traveling to our office. Additionally, when partners’ careers demand traveling, teletherapy allows them to keep their couples’ appointments regularly with both partners still participating. Sometimes, it is just more convenient to talk to your therapist online from the office or your home or even the privacy of your parked car.
Is Teletherapy Confidential
We use HIPPA compliant software to talk with you or you and your partner about your relationship, sexual problems, communication difficulties. Confidentiality is guaranteed.
Telehealth sessions must be paid in advance unless you are an established patient. Only people in North Carolina may receive a diagnosis to submit to their insurance.
Other Innovative Services
Sometimes we offer consultations and coaching to break specific patterns of relationship that need quick intervention either by phone, online or email.
For instance, we frequently help pursuers stop their nagging and contain their anxiety with quick check-ins online or by email. We can offer 24 hour emails to help parents develop concrete plans to deal with trying children situations. We coach distancers to develop their voice and quickly sort through their feelings even before their next session.
Some functional patients simply want coaching on specific issues and we can assess whether this would be appropriate for you.
You may talk with your therapist about our up-to-date services that can give you added support in your therapy.
