Safe, Flexible and Effective
For clients who do not feel comfortable or cannot physically come into the office, Teletherapy is an option.
Teletherapy is offered via DOXY or Psychology Today, a HIPPA compliant, confidential video platform.
Research suggests that teletherapy can be as effective as in-person therapy. The benefits of seeking research-supported teletherapy with a licensed therapist include:
Greater access to care: Some people are unable to use traditional therapy due to physical disabilities, geographic location, or scheduling issues.
Flexibility: Teletherapy allows clients who may have time constraints to more expeditiously receive treatment. Save time by scheduling a session during lunch hour or after-school, without the added commute time.
Lower costs: Teletherapy may help clients save money on treatment. Clients are also likely to incur fewer therapy-associated expenses when they do not have to travel to receive treatment or pay for child care.
High satisfaction: Users of quality teletherapy report high satisfaction with treatment.
More privacy: People who choose teletherapy do not have to sit in busy waiting rooms but can seek treatment in the privacy of their own homes. For some, this alleviates privacy concerns.
Better public health: The COVID-19 health crisis demonstrates that the ability to seek medical care at home can slow the spread of illness and protect vulnerable populations. Teletherapy allows people to get mental health treatment at home without risking the spread of infection during epidemics and pandemics.
