We are guided by the vision of Eleanor Roosevelt
“Where do human rights begin? In Small places, close to home – so close that they cannot be seen on any maps. Yet, they are the world of the individual person. Without concerned citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world. The world of the future is in our making. Tomorrow is now.”

UVCares offers counseling services through teletherapy (video conferencing), which allows ease and convenience in connecting with a mental health provider.
We use secure technology to keep your personal health information private. All counseling sessions and client records are subject to the same strict HIPAA standards as in-person sessions.
Research shows that telehealth services are as effective as in-person appointments when it comes to treating mental illness. Some people find that telehealth is more helpful because they are able to attend more convenient appointments while in the comfort of privacy.
If you have insurance, we can bill your insurance for you. Most insurance companies pay for telehealth appointments. There is no need to worry if you do not have insurance as we will accept an amount that you can afford to pay.
When you are ready…
We are here. We can help.
