Tele-therapy sessions can be an excellent alternative to in office sessions. We offer secure video conferencing therapy through HIPAA compliant formats. Telephone sessions can also be arranged if you prefer.
Who is Teletherapy For?
Teletherapy is beneficial for adults, teens, parents, and even children. Children are so accustomed to technology that many do well with tele-therapy when an in office visit is not an option.
How Do Online Therapy Sessions Work?
Teletherapy sessions work much the same way as traditional therapy sessions with only one significant difference – the therapist and the client are not in the same room. Sessions are scheduled at an appropriate and suitable time and day for each party, who then log-in via an agreed, secure video platform. The therapist and client can see and hear each other in real-time during the session via the use of webcams and headsets. Through this virtual environment, they can interact with each other, and the therapist uses the same traditional techniques and activities they would use in a face-to-face therapy session. As with face-to-face therapy, a client may only seek out the therapist for one session to deal with a current life situation, or they may agree to on-going sessions.
Are Teletherapy Sessions Private?
Therapists are ethically and legally bound by privacy laws to not share details about their teletherapy sessions with anyone (excluding mandated reporting laws), just as with face-to-face sessions. Therapists must ensure they are in a private and secure room before engaging in any teletherapy sessions. Sessions are not recorded or shared with anyone. As the client, you will need a private place to have your session to ensure your full attention is on your therapy and to ensure your confidentiality.
