Send Me Your Questions
Submitting information here is not PRIVATE.
To communicate confidentially login to the secure patient area instead. Still have questions? Read on ….
The “send message” communications option will send a Non-Secure and Non-HIPAA compliant message to the practice. This means that your information will be processed via public domain platforms by third parties.
If you are looking for Asynchronous Connect Now Online Services in an encrypted platform (what’s encrypted mean?) to “visit” the therapist, take a read of how/where to begin. If you wish to chat using your cell phone or tablet and want to do so in our encrypted platform you can log in and schedule a chat session to being a real time live chat!
Users who do not wish to create a HIPAA secure and confidential client profile may send information using the dialogue box on this page as long as you are okay with the likelihood that others could access that same information. This non-secure option allows users to ask GENERAL and NON PRIVATE questions. Users with private and specific mental health questions should NOT USE THIS “send message” page option. The secure way to communicate with the practice is to log in to the secure encrypted platform here.
Users who click the “SUBMIT Non-Secure Message” button below acknowledge by doing so that others may be able to see the information being sent, that such information could be misused by malicious and non-binding parties/persons, and that non-secure contact is being made with a mental health professional with these understandings in mind. Users agree, by submitting general questions in the public talkifuwant.com domain, that the non secure option is not HIPAA compliant, it is not encrypted or secure and doing so includes privacy risks.
Further users acknowledge that they are aware that an alternative secure and private option was/is available here. In non-secure communications, even when users send information to the provider, users need to know that a mental health professional cannot respond to specific mental health information via non-secure platforms. In secure communications, mental health providers and clients may speak freely due to HIPAA compliance standards and privacy standards compliance. Users should not assume that “encrypted, https:” or a “lock icon by the URL” means the shared information is HIPAA secure. For more information about secure server mental health options, accessible 24 hours a day – please go here.
Texting, non-secure video conferencing (all applications on a phone or publicly accessible video platform that do not specifically say HIPAA Compliant and Secure Encrypted) or any other online communications outside of encrypted HIPAA compliant environments is done so at your own risk. Again, if you wish to communicate in total private, encrypted between just you and the therapist log in now. You can use the 24/7 asynchronous option and/or you can schedule a real time chat session (that even works on your phone or tablet)!
Users who “send message” outside of the patient area are doing so without security or privacy ensured.
How Can I Tell The Difference?
With this practice we’ll tell you! The easiest way is to look at the PUBLIC DOMAIN website and then to look at the Secure Patient Domain website. Besides the layout differences one requires a login and the other does not. To learn more about encrypted communications and the security features of the practice have a look here!

FAX COMMUNICATIONS ARE NO LONGER USED BY THE PRACTICE
Because a provider log in portal is now available with TalkifUwant records information can be generated and submitted electronically to providers with the appropriate consent form almost immediately. If you are provider and you have a consent form, please call the practice for a portal permission where your form can be uploaded immediately. If you are a client or former client wishing to have records sent to someone written consent is needed. The consent form can be found on the public domain, however that form will have to be mailed. If you wish to expedite the process you should fill out the form by logging into your digital file where there is nothing to print. Questions? Feel free to call too.
