Is Online Therapy (Telehealth) Right For me?
Many clients find that online therapy is a preferred method of treatment for their needs. It is an exciting technological era, where therapists are happy to offer quality and privacy-secure treatment options in the comfort of the client’s own home!
Online therapy is useful for clients who struggle to leave the home (chronic health issues, rural location, new baby at home, social anxiety, unsafe driving conditions, etc).
Online therapy is useful for clients who may want to have family members or partners join sessions in a convenient way.
Online therapy allows clients to experience a level of comfort that they may not be able to find in the traditional office setting.
