TELETHERAPY TREATMENT NOW AVAILABLE!


I, Marilyn Levy have expanded my services to include Teletherapy Treatment to respond to COVID-19.


Teletherapy sessions are as professional and personal as regular sessions held in my office. All therapeutic approaches (EMDR, talk therapy, mindfulness) used during office visits are successfully utilized during your Teletherapy sessions.​​




TELETHERAPY DETAILS

(Please read the entire following information,)


Due to the needs and safety of your health (and mine), I have included Teletherapy – an option to traditional in office therapeutic sessions. I am using the ZOOM program which is approved by HIPPA.


Once an appointment is scheduled (by phone, text, email), I will place your appointment date and time on the ZOOM calendar. ZOOM will then generate a link to you via your email which will enable you to sign in to the schedules session.


The session is exactly like FACETIME, SKYPE – except that it is completely secure and approved by HIPPA.


All platforms are accepted by ZOOM – Android, IPhone, desktop.


For new clients, all paperwork/ forms are required to be completed and mailed to info@marilynlevy.com prior to your session. These forms can be located above on this page of my website. For existing clients the only form required prior to the first Teletherapy session is the NEW form. This form must be emailed to me at the address already cited.


As with face to face sessions, I am available for questions and concerns via phone, text or email.


Billing will be the same as office sessions.

  • What to do in case you lose contact during the session:
  • (If you lose contact and you are processing, continue the Butterfly Hug until you feel in your body that it is enough. If you still feel disturbance at the end of the BH, please use one of the self-soothing techniques, which you will be shown at the beginning of the session, whichever you prefer. Subsequently, try to re-establish communications.)
