Click on the “book now” button to schedule a free phone consultation with Mike Christensen to learn more.

What is TEAM-CBT?

TEAM Therapy, developed by world-renowned author and therapist Dr. David Burns, is a powerful and innovative form of therapy that builds upon evidence-based treatments such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), to drive faster change and relief for patients. Each step of this approach has been studied and shown to improve therapy results. More about TEAM Therapy

What is online therapy?

Online therapy has been defined as the use of technology (e.g., phone, video technology) for the delivery of psychological services. We prefer to use video-based meetings whenever possible.

What are the benefits and risks of online therapy?

There are numerous potential benefits of online therapy. For example, sessions can be provided when clients are not able to attend in-person sessions due to various reasons including physical limitations, physical distance, or lack of transportation. It also allows clients to connect with high quality clinicians who may not be otherwise available based on geography. Ample research indicates that online therapy has led to effective treatment of various disorders (Journal of Technology in Human Services, 2008, Vol. 26, No. 2; Clinical Psychology: Science and Practice, Vol. 16, No. 3). However, some potential risks of online therapy include: less control over confidentiality, decreased emotional connection between therapist and client due to lack of physical proximity, reducing the likelihood of insurance reimbursement, and necessity of using different forms of crisis intervention (e.g., client is required to visit a local emergency room, support person is more likely to be contacted). Online therapy requires you to be familiar with technology and requires that paperwork be submitted via electronic means or postal mail (instead of face-to-face).

How do I know if I am a good candidate for online therapy?

Your clinician will use the initial evaluation, as well as the first few sessions, to recommend whether online therapy is appropriate for your needs. Evaluation of appropriateness for online therapy will continue throughout the treatment. If the clinician determines that it no longer seems appropriate to provide online therapy, then the clinician will inform you of this and make local referrals. You are welcome to decline online therapy services.

What if I live outside of New York?

Licensing requirements limit where we can provide online therapy. The information on this page applies to potential clients in the state of New York. Online therapy can be provided by FGI clinicians in multiple US states and Canada . For a complete listing of the states we service with online therapy, please visit our homepage www.videotherapy.live. If you reside in a state or country we do not service online, please check our off site Certified Clinicians list to find local providers trained in TEAM-CBT. Clients also frequently travel to our FGI locations in Mountain View, CA and New York City, NY to participate in our Intensive Therapy program

What are the technology requirements?

We provide video-based therapy through a HIPAA compliant system (such as, Ring Central, Vsee). Clients are encouraged to research and understand the benefits and limits of this form of technology before agreeing to engage with the technology. We ask that you use a computer or mobile device with a camera, clear microphone, up to date antivirus software, and a personal firewall. It is recommended that videoconferencing be completed on an internet service at a bandwidth of 384 Kbps or higher in each of the downlink and uplink directions. Such services should provide a minimum of 640 X 360 resolution at 30 frames per second. You will need access to a private space where you will not be overheard and are free from other distractions (phones, emails, other persons in the area).

Are there any concerns that are not a good fit for this program?

Unfortunately, our program is not set-up to replace crisis services or hospitalization; Persons who are a good fit for this program are eager for help, but are stable, and desire new skills and further symptom relief. We are not able to provide detox services or accept patients who are actively dependent on substances.

What ages are appropriate?

We provide online therapy counseling to individuals age 18 and older. Younger teenagers may be considered.

Who provides the counseling?

Online therapy in New York is provided by Lindsy Koroly and Craig Gilkey. Both are warm and compassionate TEAM-CBT certified clinicians. They specialize in treating adults with depression, anxiety, relationship problems, and adjustment issues.

Online therapy in New York is provided by Dr. Taylor Chesney, PsyD. Dr. Chesney is licensed to practice clinical psychology by the state boards of New York and California. She is also the director of Feeling Good Institute in NYC and a certified Level 5 Master in TEAM-CBT by Feeling Good Institute. She teaches online groups for Feeling Good Institute, and assists Dr. David Burns when he conducts workshops in her area.

What are the costs and do you accept insurance?

Online therapy in New York is billed at $250 for the first 50-minute intake session and $225 for ongoing 50-minute sessions. All fees are paid online at the time the appointment is booked. Our clinicians are considered “fee for service”. Services are not covered under medical plans though they can be submitted to your insurance provider as an out of network provider service for reimbursement.  Please inquire with your insurance company to find out whether they will reimburse online therapy services.

How do I move forward?

Please start by booking a free 15-minute phone consultation with Taylor Chesney. She will ask questions to understand your needs and provide brief information about the counseling approach. If you both agree it’s a good fit, then you can schedule an initial video-based counseling session to continue assessing goodness of fit and start the counseling process.
