Telemental health, also known as teletherapy or distance counseling, has continued to grow in popularity. With it’s many advantages, it might be the right choice for you.
Telemental health is an effective alternative to traditional, face-to-face or in-person therapy for a variety of mental health issues such as depression and anxiety. The benefits of telemental health extend to adults seeking services, as well as children and adolescents. It can be especially beneficial for individuals who lack access to mental health in their area or clinicians with specializations related to their presenting concern.
Telemental health is offered on a secured HIPPA compliant platform. It is important that you are able to join a telehealth session from a private space to ensure your privacy. We can guarantee this on our end. This is a great option for clients who have introverted tendencies, or who are concerned about publicly seeking counseling services due to safety or stigma-related concerns.
Telemental health allows you to work with a clinician from the comfort of your own space without having to drive to the office and spend money on travel. With accessible technologies (such as your phone, tablet, or computer) and Internet access, you can have a session during a break in your routine or workday, sit in your favorite chair, include loved ones in sessions who would not have been able to participate in traditional counseling, spend time with your pet, and more. This is a good fit for persons who are comfortable navigating technology.
