Telehealth Services

While Riverview Counseling Services believes that in-person therapy is the best delivery model for clinical care, we understand that life circumstances and family needs do not always allow for this approach.  Telehealth offers individual, family, and couples counseling from the comfort of your own home via our secure video conference portal.  At the click of a button, you are connected to your therapist.

Do I qualify for telehealth*?

In an effort to provide quality emotional and mental health services to families facing obstacles to therapy, Riverview offers Telehealth Counseling to the following clients who qualify:

  • Relocation – Clients who have relocated within the state of Illinois due to a move or college attendance
  • Temporary emergency situations – Clients who can no longer attend in-clinic sessions due to a temporary emergency such as transportation or physical injury
  • Temporary travel – Clients who are temporarily traveling within the state of Illinois
  • Special needs caretaker – Clients who are caring for at least one child with special needs (physical, developmental, or emotional)
  • Transportation hardship – Clients who are unable to attend in-clinic sessions due to hardship with transportation, time, or childcare (single parent, working parent, and/or parent with limited resources)
  • Distance – Clients who are over 30 miles or 30 minutes from an in-clinic opportunity
  • Waitlist – Clients who have a child on Riverview’s in-clinic waitlist

Couples and family therapy is also available through teleheatlh.

*Per insurance guidelines, all clients must be physically in the state of Illinois during all telehealth sessions. Riverview utilizes a HIPAA compliant, easy-to-use telehealth platform via our client portal. While most insurance companies cover telehealth services, we recommend you contact your insurance company to see if telehealth is an option for you.
