ICLLC offers the use of technology to communicate with your therapist, because not everybody can make it to the office. Through the use of your computer with a microphone and camera, or your smartphone or tablet we can communicate with you using VSee. VSee is a simple and secure software that has used for over 20 years by major medical systems, NASA, US Congress and the Navy Seals. This HIPAA compliant software is encrypted on three levels for confidentiality and safe communication.
