Therapy From the Comfort of Your Home or Office
Teletherapy Keeps You Connected
What is Telehealth?
Telehealth provides you an opportunity to connect with your therapist from your work, home or wherever you may need it. The typical form of communication is through video where you and your therapist will use a secure video conferencing option to connect to each other for your therapy sessions. For many individuals and couples, it has become the preferred method of carrying on their their sessions remotely. Although Telehealth has been around for years, it gained popularity after COVID-19 significantly altered the way we communicated. Individuals became more comfortable using platforms such as Zoom to connect to friends, family and co-workers.
Does Telehealth Really Work?
Yes. A resounding number of studies continue to support the efficacy of online video platforms. While most forms of therapy have traditionally been in-office settings, the majority of therapies can be done online. Talk therapies which focus on the content of an individual's concern have greatly improved access to therapy. Here are some of the major benefits to using Telehealth:
Easy access to connect to a therapist for some or all or your sessions.
Get access to additional times outside of regular office hours.
Avoid driving, traffic, time to park, associated costs, and unexpected delays.
