What Is Tele-Therapy?

  • Teletherapy is an important branch in the growing field of Telehealth, allows patients to access care remotely instead of in their therapist’s office by meeting with their therapist online in a teleconferencing session. Patients who participate in teletherapy experience all of the same benefits they would at an in-office session

  • Teletherapy also provides the opportunity for consultation with family members, teachers, and other providers involved in the patient’s care. Surveyed patients participating in telemedicine say they are very satisfied with the care they are receiving and that they feel telemedicine is a reliable form of practice. In addition, they find that they are able to keep their appointments on a more regular basis

This form of treatment can eliminate your commute time and lead to less stress, especially when you are scheduled to see your psychiatrist/therapist often.  For patients who are usually seen in the office but are sick or traveling, this form of treatment allows you to still keep your appointment without interrupting your care.
