Teletherapy & Telepsychiatry Available

We have immediate openings for virtual therapy and psychiatry through Telehealth Services. We are able to serve individuals of all ages—children, teens and adults—throughout Michigan and Iowa. In order to provide as much access as possible, every clinician and psychiatrist in our outpatient clinics is providing virtual visits, and we have expanded our hours to include more evenings and weekends.

Most insurance (including BCBS, Prioirty Health, Medicaid and Medicare) covers telehealth services and during the COVID-19 crisis, many are waiving copays and other requirements.
