In my practice I utilize teletherapy as a way to provide easily accessible treatment to patients who need it. Teletherapy is technology driven psychotherapy that allows you to receive face-to-face care via live online video visits. Teletherapy eliminates the trip to my office and allows you to receive care from your laptop or cell phone!
Why do I use teletherapy? After working in the mental health field for a while I began integrating technology in to my practice with the objective of bringing care to those who cannot make it in to my office. Though successful, there are some limitations to the traditional face to face therapy approach. Some patients struggle with getting to the office due to time constraints or geographical limitations. Furthermore, time can be a limitation for therapists as well. Teletherapy fits into your schedule and makes treatment convenient and more accessible.
