Counseling/Therapy can provide a space to solve problems and heal wounds. It can be a place of hope and new beginnings. Within a trusting, collaborative relationship with the right counselor, it can provide structure for people to build strengths, support, and resources, and to discover solutions. It can also be a place to continue to grow and to learn more about yourself.
At the Layne Center, therapy sessions occur in either our Fayetteville, GA or Columbus, GA offices or via telemental health. TeleMental Health is defined as follows:
“TeleMental Health means the mode of delivering services via technology-assisted media, such as but not limited to, a telephone, video, internet, a smartphone, tablet, PC desktop system or other electronic means using appropriate encryption technology for electronic health information. TeleMental Health facilitates client self-management and support for clients and includes synchronous interactions and asynchronous store and forward transfers.” (Georgia Code 135-11-.01)
Video Conferencing is an option for us to conduct remote sessions over the internet where we not only can speak to one another, but we also see each other on a screen.
