What is Teletherapy
Teletherapy is a subset of telemedicine whereby the licensed provider and patient are meeting using virtual technology. Teletherapy is the online delivery of mental health therapy services via live video conferencing, phone, email or text communication services. Licensed Mental Health Counselors use traditional psychotherapy techniques and strategies using the latest technology software to deliver high-quality, clinically competent services. Teletherapy sessions are scheduled in the same manner that face to face sessions are scheduled; a workable day and time are agreed upon for each party, who then log-in via an agreed, secure online platform.
