What is tele-therapy?
Tele-therapy is an online counseling service from the comfort of your home or from anywhere you choose to be. The services are provided confidentially using video conferencing that is HIPAA compliant. This is a virtual face-to-face setting that is similar to Skype.
Is Tele-therapy Effective?
Teletherapy is best suited for those who suffer from anxiety, depression, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Research has demonstrated the effectiveness in tele-therapy using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) as effective as in traditional settings (Tutty, Spangler, Poppleton, Ludman, & Simon 2010). Tugoose, Ashwick, and Murphy (2017) found that tele-therapy is as effective than traditional in person counseling in helping reduce the symptoms of PTSD.
