059 - Ray Barrett
So good to be back after quite a hiatus. As our field is rapidly changing due to the Covid 19
Pandemic and therapists all over the world are being forced to work from home, I thought it
would be a great idea to put out a few new episodes. And I couldn’t think of a better guest that
Raymond Barrett. He is the founder of Telehealth Certification Institute and has been training
therapist on TeleMental health for years. He is incredibly knowledgeable about how the
regulations are changing in the last few days and I’m thrilled he could join us and keep us up to
date. And he has put together a huge Online Therapy Summit – a weekend of classes that will
provide continuing education training. The link to his site and to the summit is below:

058 - The TeleHealth Counseling Clinic at Texas A & M
Today we get to talk with Dr. Carly McCord about how she helped develop the
TeleHealth Counseling Clinic at Texas A & M. Seeing that there was a need in rural
Texas for mental health care, but realizing that clients had huge obstacles in
receiving it (digital divide, transportation, etc) and having many qualified doctoral
students at the University – she worked to combine the need with her students and
added in technology – developing a clinic that has provided online therapy to over
800 clients (that’s 8000 sessions!). We talk about tele-supervision and training
tomorrow’s online therapists.
057 - iTherapy
Forrest Pulley – Co-Founder
Nicholas Fuller – Chief Technical Officer
I am so fortunate to get to talk to Forrest Pulley (co-founder) and Nicholas Fuller
(Chief Technical Officer) of iTherapy. iTherapy is an incredibly robust service that
serves the field of online therapy. They offier HIPAA compliant video, EHR services,
payment gateway, scheduling, notes and other services that are typical in the field.
But they set themselves apart with their customer services and some of their higher
offerings like business coaching, marketing guidance, virtual assistance and tips on
how to jump start your practice as an online therapist. They’ve done a great job of
listening to online therapists about their needs and then creating programs and
services to meet those needs. They have a passion for serving the field and I’m so
happy to get to interview them.
056 - Martin Perry
Today’s interview is with Martin Perry who is the founder of Nous Talk. Nous Talk
is a new HIPAA compliant Audio / Video platform built specifically for online
therapists. I’ve tried it out for the last month and am incredibly impressed. They
are super HIPAA compliant – just not offering a BAA, but also addressing levels of
HIPAA that other platforms do not – and they comply with malpractice insurers!
They offer Group sessions, accepting online payments, arranging online scheduling –
it’s a very robust platform and incredibly easy to use.
Great Podcast About Online Counseling!
This is the everything you need-to-know about online counseling podcast, and it’s fabulous! I listen to a lot of podcasts, but there are things I’ve learned on this podcast during Clay’s interviews that I haven’t heard anywhere else. This is an up-and-coming area in the therapy field, and if you are adventurous and looking to do something new and different with your practice, this might be just what you’re looking for. I highly recommend this podcast as well as the online counseling directory. Clay is creating something truly special, and you’ll want to be a part of it!
