Telehealth Services Canoga Park

In order to protect your personal safety as well as our employees, we have made a switch over to telehealth services in Canoga Park for the duration of the current COVID-19 outbreak until it’s safe to resume in-person meetings. Clients and patients can now talk with our providers via online conferencing from their homes or wherever they can find a private place. Telehealth is available for both psychiatry (medication management) and psychotherapy. Our experienced team of mental health providers offers effective and comprehensive care for patients during this stressful time. We can work together to develop and manage a personalized treatment program. Our staff from the front office are also working remotely and are available to help you as always.

Many of our patients are familiar with different forms of telecommunication, but we understand that for some of our other patients, it can take a little while to get used to. However, in our experience, almost everyone has been able to find a way to adapt and benefit from our online services. While some people prefer having their sessions over the phone, most of our patients and providers in Canoga Park find that having a video connection enhances the therapeutic process. Also, insurance providers all have policies that cover telepsychiatry and teletherapy conducted using video, but will not reimburse for a phone appointment.

We have also created a page with a variety of useful coping resources that we’ll be updating as time goes on over the course of the pandemic. Please click the button below to access it.

Canoga Park Teletherapy

Blue Sky Psychiatry is using teletherapy for our patients in Canoga Park to continue to provide effective psychotherapy services, including individual, couples, and family therapy.

Living alone under normal circumstances has its benefits. But social distancing can take everyday problems associated with loneliness like depression, anxiety, substance abuse and eating disorders and magnify them into something much more exaggerated.

Living with other family members or roommates can present its own unique set of challenges. The social anxiety surrounding COVID-19 magnifies any tensions that may have been manageable before having to shelter in place.

For couples, marital issues, parenting challenges, and financial stress can increase conflict in your home life. It is more difficult to keep things private with everyone stuck inside the house all the time. Issues surrounding drug abuse and domestic violence can worsen because the usual supports and distractions are gone. When this happens it is very important to have an outlet that you can share your feelings and thoughts with.

Teenagers’ job is to differentiate from their families and establish more independence. They usually test limits and try to spend as much time as possible with their peers. Teens have difficulty acknowledging their own vulnerability and following strict social distancing rules. They may push against parental limits leading to increased conflict.

Blue Sky Psychiatry offers telehealth services to patients in Canoga Park

Telepsychiatry Canoga Park

Our medication providers are continuing to offer excellent psychiatric diagnostic services and psychopharmacologic help through telepsychiatry for our patients.

During this time of social distancing and facing the possibility of serious illness, many of the issues people were already struggling with have become intensified. When sleep problems, loneliness, marital stress, addiction, domestic violence, financial problems, and other difficult family issues become too difficult to manage in spite of your best efforts and psychotherapeutic interventions, medication can be an important component of your treatment plan. Sometimes medication protocols that have been effective need to be adjusted during these stressful times.
