Counseling sessions are done through SimplePractice, which is fully HIPAA and HITRUST compliant with bank-level security and the VeriSign security seal. SimplePractice is secured with 128-bit Secure Socket Layer encryption. Online Counseling offers many of the benefits of face-to-face counseling but without the hassle of a commute or being limited to the mental health counselors in your area. We can now reach anyone in the state of Georgia who is looking for qualified, effective treatment.
Due the limitations of online counseling, some mental health concerns would be better dealt with in person. If you are experiencing persistent suicidal thoughts, homicidal thoughts, self-harming behaviors, psychosis, or severe and persistent mental illness, online counseling through Lithos will not be the best option. During the course of treatment, should these issues present, your therapist will review and defer to the contingency plan established prior to treatment. This topic will be fully reviewed during the intake process.
Once your session is booked, there will be an email sent which will include a link to our virtual counseling room. This link will become active right before our session. There is no software to load on your computer or multiple passwords to remember. There is an app to download if you wish to use your mobile phone instead of your laptop or desktop computer, however (Apple and Android).
