The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted a reevaluation of our working methods. One significant insight gained is the effectiveness of therapy through video conferencing. Extensive research has corroborated the efficacy of teletherapy, demonstrating its equivalence to in-person therapy. Moreover, our patients have expressed high levels of satisfaction with teletherapy.
As we gradually transition back to offering in-person therapy at our offices, many patients value the option to conduct some or all of their sessions remotely, utilizing our secure video conferencing platform compliant with HIPAA regulations. A growing number of our therapists now provide the choice between in-person and teletherapy sessions. While some have returned exclusively to in-person sessions, others continue to exclusively offer teletherapy.
Teletherapy sessions come with their own array of advantages. For instance, they facilitate your therapist’s virtual presence as you engage in practicing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques from the convenience of your home or other preferred settings.
Following the recent implementation of the Psychology Interjurisdictional Compact, we are now fully equipped to offer teletherapy services to residents in 34 states.
Nonetheless, it’s essential to acknowledge that teletherapy may not be the ideal choice for all circumstances. If you’re contemplating the possibility of commencing teletherapy, we encourage you to get in touch with our New Patient Coordinator for a thorough discussion about this option.
