Teletherapy Practice Rules By State

FOR COUNSELORS, MARRIAGE AND FAMILY THERAPISTS, PSYCHOLOGISTS, AND CLINICAL SOCIAL WORKERS

Whenever teletherapy sessions occur when the client -- or therapist -- are physically located outside the state of the clinician's licensure at the time of session, cross-jurisdictional practice is occurring. It is necessary to answer the question of whether it is permissible for you to work with that client in that state, regardless of whether the presence in another jurisdiction is temporary or not.

In addition to the fundamental question of whether practice is permitted, and the particulars of how it is permitted, it is important to identify rules of practice, and training requirements, in order to be equipped with the information you need to follow for navigating legal-ethical cross-jurisdictional practice.

This tool is a supportive resource to help you identify that information, link you to the authoritative source, and document your performance of due diligence when conducting cross-jurisdictional practice within the United States.
