What is teletherapy?
Teletherapy is online therapy; instead of meeting face-to-face in an office, we meet over your smart phone, tablet, laptop, or computer. It is similar to Skype or FaceTime, but secure and HIPAA compliant.
Is online therapy as effective as traditional therapy?
Yes, online therapy is an easy and effective way to connect to your therapist and make changes in your life. There is over 20 years of research supporting teletherapy services. A 2017 study found that veterans diagnosed with PTSD receiving treatment via online therapy at home achieved results as effective as the veterans receiving the same treatment at an in person clinic.
What are benefits of online therapy?
Benefits of online therapy include:
having therapy in the comfort of your own home (or another safe and private location)
fitting a therapy appointment easily into your busy schedule
no time spent traveling to and from the appointment
no stress of dealing with traffic or searching for a parking space
no need to arrange for childcare
if you are ill and feel well enough to talk, you can attend your appointment without the risk of anyone else getting sick
working with a therapist who does not reside in your home town
I'm not that great with technology. Will I be able to do online therapy?
Yes! No matter what your experience level is with technology, you can do online therapy. It is a simple and easy process; an email is sent to you with a link you click on to attend the session.
