What to expect: Teletherapy is essentially counseling sessions held via live video conferencing. When requesting a teletherapy session, you will receive a link to your e-mail 15 minutes prior to the session. This link will take you to the virtual waiting room, where your clinician will meet you at the time of the appointment. If taking the session from your laptop, a new page will open and no further action is needed from you. If you are taking the session from your phone or tablet, you will need to download an application. A few things to take into consideration: your clinician can only guarantee privacy on her end of the computer, so please make sure you are in a private space, uninterrupted by others in order to get the most benefit from your teletherapy session. A HIPAA-approved and secure portal is utilized to conduct these sessions.
Due to COVID, teletherapy continues to be our main treatment modality. But perhaps you also travel in and out of town on a regular basis for work or for leisure. Maybe you are a college student who wishes to continue therapy while away in college. Or it could be that you just had a baby, and thinking about leaving the house with your precious bundle seems like a hassle.
If you are seeking to start or continue therapy from the comfort of your home or on the go, then Teletherapy might be a good fit for you! Teletherapy has been shown to be just as effective as in-person counseling for certain mental health issues. Sessions held in the office can have a similar feel to sessions held via video conference. Your therapist will even be able to share worksheets with you or guide you through exercises.
