Remote Therapy Sessions
Remote video therapy sessions are an excellent way to continue to care for your mental health anytime you’re unable to attend an in-person session. For example: traveling married couples, during social distancing, during extreme weather events, etc. Remote video therapy sessions are just as effective as in-person treatment.
What Are The Benefits Of Remote Therapy?
Remote therapy is a great alternative to in-person therapy for many reasons.
- Transportation Difficulties – Getting to and from a therapist’s office may not be easy for everyone. If you don’t have a car and must rely on public transportation, it can be time-consuming and difficult. With different train, subway, and bus schedules, you may never make it. Remote therapy allows you to still make your therapy session without having to worry about how you are going to get there.
- Social Distancing / Quarantine / Sick At Home – Anytime you need to stay home for health reasons you can continue or even begin therapy sessions. Being stuck at home can become stressful for individuals, families, and married couples. Zoom technology allows us to offer the same high quality and HIPPA compliant care as our in-person sessions.
- Caretaker Therapy – Caretaking for sick or injured family members is an extremely important and difficult job. Caretakers often don’t get the luxury to clock-out from their jobs. When they are able to leave the home, it’s often for a limited time.
- Location Restrictions – Maybe you have found a therapist you like but their office is not close to you. If you live in a remote area you may have limited mental health practices. With remote video therapy, you can find a great therapist anywhere. You don’t have to worry about where you live to ensure that you are taking care of your mental health.
- Physical Limitations – If you are disabled in any way, getting to an office for an appointment can prove difficult. With remote video therapy, the therapist comes to you. Taking care of both your physical and mental well-being has never been easier.
- Convenience – With busy schedules, it is not always easy to see your therapists as much as you would like. Sometimes you just make it home from work to have dinner and spend time with your family. With no travel time, remote therapy is convenient. Even if you have a million things to do you can always find a place to stop and speak to your therapist even for just a short amount of time.
- The Comfort Of Your Own Home – For some people speaking about personal issues is easier when in a comfortable familiar space. Remote therapy allows you to sit in your favorite chair, sip on tea, or even be in your pajamas. Being comfortable so that you can speak openly to a therapist is the best way to ensure you get the most out of your sessions.
