What are advantages of Telehealth?
Telehealth appointments can be very beneficial if you have any of the following concerns:
- Are you worried about sitting in an office with a therapist due to restrictions related to COVID-19?
- Do you need support of a therapist , but can’t make it to an in-person appointment?
- Are you a busy stay-at-home parent having a hard time finding a sitter for the kids?
- Are you a working parent and don’t have the time to drive across town for an appointment?
- Do you live in a more rural area where there might not be a therapist close to your work or home?
There are many advantages to telehealth therapy, including but not limited to:
- Reduces potential exposure to communicable diseases
- Sessions can take place in the comfort and privacy of your home, office, or even in your parked car
- Access to a wider choice of therapists who are licensed to practice in your state, not just in your city
- No commute time
- Increased confidentiality - no uncomfortable encounters in a waiting room with someone you know
- Increased access for differently-abled individuals
- Flexible evening and weekend appointments
- The ability to keep appointments if caring for a sick family member
- Studies have shown video-based therapy obtains the same results as in-person therapy
If you prefer to have a therapist physically present in the same room with you, online therapy may not be the best option for you. We are currently seeing clients IN-PERSON at our offices in Hyde Park , Downtown CIncinnati, Blue Ash and West Chester.
