Telemedicine Q&A

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine (telehealth) delivers mental health services online. Instead of traveling to the office, you meet with your Mind Meadow therapist from home, at work, or anywhere you happen to be in Virginia.

Telemedicine is like being face-to-face in the office, except you have an online video conference using your smartphone, tablet, or computer.

Mind Meadow also offers in-person appointments, allowing you to choose how to schedule your appointments.


Can all mental health challenges be treated through telemedicine?

The therapy you receive through telemedicine is just as effective as in-person visits. Telemedicine may even improve depression better than office appointments.

The Mind Meadow therapists treat a wide range of mental health conditions through virtual visits, including:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Panic attacks
  • Trauma
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)

The Mind Meadow team treats people aged 5 through 65 with telemedicine.


What services can I receive through telemedicine?

All of the services provided in the office are also available through telemedicine. Your comprehensive telemedicine care includes:

Initial consultation

Your initial consultation is a time for your therapist to learn about your medical and mental health history, current symptoms, and your concerns. This is also a time for you to get comfortable with your Mind Meadow therapist and decide if you want to pursue a therapeutic relationship.

After completing your psychiatric evaluation, your therapist may recommend further psychological testing, depending on the cause of your symptoms. They may do additional testing during your initial consultation or schedule another visit.

Finally, your therapist recommends a treatment plan. Mind Meadow specializes in therapy. They may refer you to another specialist if needed for medication.



You can participate in any talk therapy through telemedicine. The skilled Mind Meadow therapists are highly trained and experienced in many cutting-edge and effective therapies, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), mindfulness, and trauma-based therapies.


Individual, group, family, and marriage counseling

The Mind Meadow therapists also offer many therapeutic styles, allowing them to personalize your care whether you need individual, group, family, or marriage counseling. 


Don’t put off therapy that can improve your mental health just because you can’t get to the office. Call Mind Meadow or book online today to learn how to connect through telemedicine.
