About Us

Encounter Telehealth

Encounter Telehealth is based in Omaha, Nebraska. The company launched Encounter Telepsychiatry in 2012 to address the severe shortage of mental health providers in our rural communities, by bringing the provider directly to the patient via telehealth.

Encounter provides care across the entire mental health spectrum including psychiatric evaluations, medication management, psychotherapy, family therapy, and staff training in over 100 skilled nursing, long-term care, and assisted living facilities.

Our patients receive specialized, evidence-based mental health care regardless of where they live.

Our Values:

Our values embody how we treat colleagues, patients, providers, facility partners and staff. At our core is a belief in self-determination, personal responsibility, and respect for all.
