Mental health and therapy practices are typically considered to be services that are delivered in person, in a face-to-face setting, however, shifts in health care and telemedicine are making online therapists and online therapy a more common and effective practice.
Benefits of Online Counseling and Therapy
There are many key benefits to having counseling sessions and therapy online from qualified professional therapists. Through live video chat and video conferencing, patients can receive treatment and therapy on par with services that they would receive in an office setting with the convenience of not having to leave home. This saves patients time and money while allowing them to focus on improving their health and well-being. Modern video conferencing services often are HIPAA compliant and are used by licensed therapists and other mental health practitioners with confidence.
Online therapy can be delivered through a computer, or even through video chat on a smartphone, making it accessible to a wide range of patients. Traditional therapy can be augmented by online therapy as well.
Many insurance companies provide similar levels of coverage for telehealth which includes online counseling and online therapy.
