Teletherapy

Due to COVID-19 pandemic, we are providing teletherapy services to current
and new clients.

ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS Please email us at chf@umd.edu with the following information:     

  • Type of service you are seeking

  •  Phone number that we could contact you for a phone intake

  •  Best days and times we could contact you for a phone intake (Monday-Thursday, 9am-4pm)                

Prior to Your First Teletherapy Session

A therapist-intern will contact you from a blocked phone number to conduct a complimentary 15-min intake. After the intake, if we decide that we are a good fit for therapy services, you will be put on our waitlist, and once you are assigned a therapist, he/she will email you the paperwork you will need to complete prior to your first teletherapy session.
