The COVID pandemic has compelled us to reevaluate our work methods. One valuable lesson learned is that effective therapy can be conducted through video conferencing. Research has confirmed the efficacy of teletherapy, which can be as beneficial as in-person therapy. Furthermore, our patients have expressed a high level of satisfaction with teletherapy.
As we gradually transition back to offering in-person therapy in our offices, numerous patients appreciate the option to conduct some or all of their sessions remotely via our secure video conferencing platform, compliant with HIPAA regulations. Many of our therapists now provide the choice between in-person and teletherapy sessions. Some have returned exclusively to in-person sessions, while others continue to exclusively offer teletherapy.
Teletherapy sessions offer their own set of benefits. For instance, they enable your therapist to be virtually present with you as you practice Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques within the comfort of your home or various other settings.
With the recent establishment of the Psychology Interjurisdictional Compact, we are now equipped to provide teletherapy to residents in 34 states.
However, it’s important to note that teletherapy may not be suitable for every situation. If you’re considering the option of starting teletherapy, please reach out to our New Patient Coordinator for a discussion about this possibility.
