For many, visiting a therapist’s office can be difficult. Tele-psychotherapy, or clinic therapeutic service using secure tele-communication technologies, makes it possible for any person who is wanting to participate and to do so in the safety of this own home or office.
Video therapy is:
Effective – major studies show online therapy is just as effective as face-to-face therapy, for example: “There are a number of studies looking at telemedicine for different kinds of disorders and they tend to be amazingly effective,” Mary Ann Dutton, Professor and Vice Chair for Research in the Department of Psychology at Georgetown University Medical Center.
Convenient – no waiting rooms, traveling to an office of leaving work.
Choice – Video therapy allows you to make the best clinical choice regardless of location.
Private – There is no change of running into anyone in the waiting room.
Cost effective – With no need to go to an office, you save on travel and child-care expenses.
I believe that human connection the the therapeutic relationship are important aspects of therapy, I also believe we can establish the connection through video therapy.
Although telepsychology/telehealth is a new development in the healthcare industry, recent research has demonstrated that online counseling can be as effective as face-to-face therapy. If this option sounds desirable for your individual situation, please contact me to schedule an appointment.
