Yes.   All of our services are through HIPAA compliant video chat.    

The Cyber Shrink platform believes that chat only platforms lend themselves to problems of miscommunication between therapist and client.  More specifically, chat conversations are more subject to user interpretation than a video platform where non-verbal cues can be seen.  For this reason, it is our belief that video chat is the most efficacious form of online and cyber counseling.   

The therapists who promote services through The Cyber Shrink are licensed practioners in multiple states around the USA.   Each state has different laws and regulations regarding telehealth services.   Many states require disclosure of name, date of birth, and other salient information.
