Teletherapy offers much more than reduced exposure to the latest COVID variant. You save gas, energy, and time when you log into a video session with your therapist. Childcare, work schedules, illness, and more become more manageable, and that means less stress for you.
But is it effective? Overwhelmingly, yes. Read about some of the studies done on teletherapy here: https://www.apa.org/monitor/2020/07/cover-telepsychology
Additionally, clients seem to really enjoy teletherapy, finding the convenience doesn’t take away the necessary interpersonal connection with the therapist.
How does it work? You and your therapist log into a secure video platform at the time of your appointment. At Fletcher Therapy, we walk you through this process to make it as straightforward as possible.
What kind of setup do I need? An internet connection, a quiet, well-lit, private space, and minimal distractions. Teletherapy is an effective, convenient, and safe alternative to face-to-face sessions. I use HIPAA compliant software and video platforms, and – for now – teletherapy is the only type of session I offer.
