Teletherapy

During this unprecedented time, you may be experiencing any or all of the following: stress, exhaustion, frustration, depression, and anxiety.  We know an excess of these symptoms can impact our immune system, relationships, work, and the ability to enjoy life.  

Therapy can be a much needed anchor to reconnect with your inherent resiliency.  In addition, therapy can help you recognize spikes in anxiety and regulate anxiety.  Therapy can also help you experience your emotions in a healthy way so you no longer feel like a hostage to your emotions.

At this time, I am work solely through teletherapy which is also known as e-therapy, virtual therapy, and on-line therapy.  A few years ago, I published an article (Voices, 2018) which discussed the benefits of teletherapy.  

Research shows the effectiveness of teletherapy is high.  Some of the benefits of teletherapy are:

  • Continuity of treatment despite injury, quarantine, travel, and caretaking needs
  • No commute and no waiting room time
  • Comfort and safety of being in your own environment (if your home environment is not safe, then that would need to be addressed first and foremost)

Teletherapy works in a similar fashion as in person therapy.  I work with my clients in real-time weekly sessions through secure HIPAA-compliant platforms.  I work in a private home office space and all the material discussed with my clients is held to the same ethical, confidential privacy laws as in person sessions.

Fortunately, many insurance companies are now reimbursing for teletherapy at the same rate as in person sessions.  To find out more about teletherapy, feel free to reach out to me- virtually, of course!
