Teletherapy

/

Would treatment become a viable alternative if travel, parking, and waiting were eliminated?

Teletherapy, often known as online counseling, is an innovative method for delivering and receiving mental health services. It’s treatment in the privacy of your own home, on your own schedule. Teletherapy offers flexibility and convenience, meeting the client where they are.

To get you started, you will be supplied in advance all the necessary information. Your sessions will occur via a HIPAA-compliant, encrypted video platform.

Teletherapy offers numerous advantages compared to conventional in-person therapy. The advantages to consulting a licensed therapist through teletherapy include:

  1. Some individuals are unable to utilize traditional therapy due to physical limitations, geographic remoteness, or scheduling conflicts.
  2. Teletherapy may help clients cut down on treatment expenses. When clients do not have to travel to obtain treatment or pay for child care, they are likely to experience fewer costs related with therapy.
  3. Consumers of quality teletherapy report high levels of satisfaction with treatment.
  4. Individuals who choose teletherapy are not required to wait in crowded waiting rooms; they can receive treatment in the comfort of their own homes. For some, this alleviates concerns about privacy.
  5. Improved public health: The COVID-19 health crisis indicates that access to in-home medical care can halt the spread of disease and safeguard vulnerable communities. Teletherapy enables individuals to receive mental health care from home without risking the transmission of disease during epidemics and pandemics.
