Konza Expands Behavioral Telehealth Services

Since 2020, Konza has seen a significant increase in demand for behavioral healthcare delivered via telehealth. This type of care offers convenience, flexibility, and improves access to care for patients who have difficulty accessing in-person visits at the clinic. With behavioral telehealth, patients can access a virtual visit wherever they are, in the safe, appropriate setting of their choice – at home, at work, or even in the car. This can provide added comfort and ease communication.

Konza Behavioral Telehealth services are open to anyone in the community – children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. Patients will find caring, experienced professionals who treat anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), ADHD, and more. Patients experiencing grief, loss, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma, and abuse can find help, hope, and healing with therapy.

What to expect for your first therapy meeting:

The first meeting with your therapist is a time for you to get to know each other. You should tell the therapist about the difficulties you are experiencing and the type of help you are seeking. The therapist will complete necessary clinical assessments to determine treatment goals.

After the first meeting, will I meet with the therapist again?

Typically, the answer is yes. Your therapist will work on a treatment plan that best suits your needs. Therapy can be short term or long term. Short term therapy may be a few appointments dealing with immediate issues. Long term therapy deals with longstanding or more complex issues.
