Dr. Lipton provides Telepsychotherapy. This form of therapy provides HIPPA compliant (very secure) audio and visual communication over the internet. If you live too far from Dr. Lipton's Office or have lack of transportation or are handicapped, psychotherapy over the internet can be just as effective as in-person sessions.
The State of Maryland Board of Examiners of Psychologists has approved this modality of treatment services. Telepsychotherapy also provides the opportunity for patients who are ill or on vacation to continue their treatment sessions. All insurance policies which reimburse for in-person psychotherapy, with the exception of Medicare, are required to reimburse for services provided through audio/visual communication over the internet.
