Telehealth is therapy for

An office is the ideal place for therapy sessions, but life is rarely ideal. If coming into the office makes accessing counseling harder for you, telehealth video sessions may be the answer.


Eastlake Community Counseling now offers telehealth video sessions through It’s simple to use and provides you the flexibility to access care from the comfort of home.


In order to schedule with Jeff, you will already have set up a client portal. All you have to do to begin your telehealth video session is log in to your client portal. Starting 10 minutes before your appointment time, a Launch button will appear. Simply click on the Launch button to begin. It works with any internet-connected device (faster connections will provide a better user experience).

If you do not already have a Zoom account, please be sure to create one and download the Zoom app to your preferred telehealth device. This will make connecting to your session a much smoother process.

If you are having trouble connecting, please leave me a message at 619-271-8886 or email me through your client portal or at immediately. I will call to help.

Insurance will usually cover your telehealth sessions, but you should always check with your insurance provider before scheduling.


Any time you would like to use the telehealth option, be sure to contact Jeff ahead of time to discuss. All sessions will be in-person unless alternate arrangements have been discussed prior to your session.
