How does TeleCBT work?
- Register. You begin by completing this simple form here. You’ll hear from us within 48 hours of clicking “send” with a time of your first, FREE, 15 minute appointment.
- Create your account. We will send you an email with your appointment time and a link with step-by-step instruction on how to open your TeleCBT account.
- Meet your therapist. As your appointment time nears, login to the TeleCBT app via your computer or mobile device, and follow the instructions. You’ll then be able to join your appointment and meet your therapist. Your therapist will walk you through everything you need to know, and build your therapy plan with you.
TeleCBT is not appropriate for crisis counseling. If you are experiencing an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital or emergency room.
