Telemedicine - Telehealth/Teletherapy
Teletherapy and Telesupervision have been vastly growing in popularity since we were all hit by the Covid-19 pandemic and indoor mask mandates, making in person talk therapy less possible.
What are the benefits to Telemental health, Teletherapy and Telesupervision?
The obvious answer is convenience! With just a laptop or your phone you can access our office services from the comfort of your own home, just make sure to find a private, confidential room in your home where you know you will not be interrupted and no one is listening in.
Safety - in these times of self isolating and "flattening the curve" it is much safer to stay home than to venture anywhere that you don't have to, especially during mandatory school closure weeks and for those with chronic risk factors like asthma, autoimmune disorders and compromised immune systems.
Time - it takes less time to fit in a session if you don't have to add travel time in. Also, at this practice we offer some sessions outside of regular office times to accommodate those who need late afternoon or evening appointments.
Cost - we are offering flat rates (see below) for telehealth services, in addition to costs saved from traveling and gas.
Bad hair day or pink eye? If you prefer it or are nervous about the camera, simply turn off the video option or choose to call in instead!
Telehealth platforms are also offered to supplement in-person supervision sessions, as clinical therapists dealing with scheduling constraints will also benefit from all of the advantages listed above.
