Top benefits of telehealth (telemedicine/teletherapy) for mental health

One of the top benefits of telehealth is the convenience it creates for clients, allowing them to access their therapist from home or work without taking time off from work or spend time to drive to and from the therapist’s office. This is efficient for clients as it saves people time and money, making therapy accessible to everyone.

Parents can have their therapy session in this online format without having to get childcare for their children, as your children can be at home playing while you have your session.

During flu season, telehealth protects people from germs as they can still engage in therapy from the comfort of their own home.

Another benefit is privacy as you do not run into other clients in a waiting room.

Research has shown teletherapy to be effective at addressing mental health systems.

Teletherapy can be used with all ages, even children, as experienced telehealth therapists have many therapy techniques that can be used in online therapy, and children and typically quite comfortable with electronic modes of communication.

Clients tend to have less missed appointments as teletherapy is designed to fit conveniently into their life, and less missed sessions helps therapy be effective.

Overall, telehealth is a highly convenient, effective modality for people who need psychotherapy.

We offer telehealth appointments from 9am-8pm Monday through Friday as well as all day Saturdays.
