Teletherapy

Teletherapy

I am based out of Boulder, Colorado and offer comprehensive teletherapy counseling sessions throughout the state of Colorado through the use of a private and secure video session platform. This can be done using a computer, laptop, tablet, phone, or any device with access to the internet. Whether you want to alleviate symptoms or simply become a happier, healthier you, online therapy allows you to access the same level of support that you would from an in-person session; the only thing that changes is the setting.

There are a lot of advantages to connecting with a therapist online – both pragmatic and emotional. For many of us, taking the leap to start therapy may be daunting. You might feel more at ease having a therapy session from the comforts of your own home. Online therapy provides the benefit of personalized convenience, comfort, privacy, and flexible scheduling options while maintaining a quality counseling experience.

10 Benefits of Teletherapy

  • 1. You Can Stay Where You’re Comfortable: The comfort of your own home or space can significantly reduce the anxiety that often accompanies a trip to a therapist’s office, thereby enriching the therapeutic process. When you’re comfortable, you’re more likely to be open, honest, and receptive, which can make sessions more effective and can lead to greater engagement and more positive outcomes.
  • 2. Easily Fits into Busy Schedules & Saves Time: Teletherapy allows you to book an appointment that fits your schedule, even if it’s during your lunch break or late in the evening. The convenience of telehealth counseling eliminates the need to set aside additional time for commuting, making it a practical choice for busy individuals. With teletherapy, travel time can involve just the seconds it takes to walk to one’s laptop.
  • 3. Online Therapy is Just as Effective as In-Person Appointments: Numerous studies have shown that teletherapy is just as effective as traditional in-person therapy for treating a wide range of issues, including anxiety and depression. The quality of your relationship with your therapist and the progress you make is not compromised because the interaction is online. For many people, teletherapy not only makes therapy more accessible but actually enhances the experience, offering major benefits stemming from increased comfort and candidness while in your own personal space.
  • 4. Establishes Continuity and Consistency: In-person therapy sessions can get disrupted in daily life due to various reasons such as vacations, business trips, weather, or illness. Teletherapy eliminates these barriers by offering a consistent and uninterrupted course of treatment for whatever you’re working on. Wherever you are, your therapist is just a click away, ensuring that you can maintain the progress you’re making without taking involuntary breaks.
  • 5. Efficiency: With teletherapy, you can attend therapy sessions from anywhere with an internet connection, which means you can attend sessions during a convenient time, without having to worry about the time and expense of traveling to and from the therapist’s office. Furthermore, teletherapy can be particularly efficient for those who have multiple appointments or who require frequent check-ins. By eliminating the need for travel and wait times, teletherapy can help you maximize your time. Ultimately, the efficiency of teletherapy means that you can prioritize your mental health without sacrificing other important commitments, making it a valuable tool for achieving better mental health outcomes.
  • 6. Affordability: Aside from the therapy fees, additional expenses like commuting, parking, and childcare can make in-person therapy sessions costly. Teletherapy cuts these extra costs. The only requirement is an internet connection and a device to log in from, such as a laptop, tablet, or cell phone, saving you both time and money that could be better utilized elsewhere. Teletherapy can also help to reduce indirect costs that can be associated with traditional in-person therapy, such as lost time from work, transportation expenses, and other related costs. These cost savings can make it easier for you to prioritize your mental health care.
  • 7. Flexible Scheduling: Increased flexibility can be particularly helpful for individuals who have busy or unpredictable schedules or who may have difficulty attending traditional in-person therapy sessions. You can live anywhere in the State of Colorado and still receive counseling. Teletherapy allows for greater scheduling flexibility, with sessions often available outside of traditional office hours, including early mornings, evenings, and weekends. This means that you can fit therapy sessions into your busy schedule, without having to disrupt your work or personal life. Furthermore, teletherapy allows for more flexibility in the duration of the therapy sessions, offering shorter or longer sessions than traditional therapy. The flexibility provided by teletherapy means that you can tailor your therapy experience to meet your specific needs, making it easier to prioritize your well-being along with the other aspects of your life.
  • 8. Ensures Privacy, Confidentiality and Anonymity: Teletherapy adds an extra layer of privacy by allowing you to attend sessions from a location of your choice. The platform that is utilized is secure to ensure that all your personal information is safe, allowing you to focus on what matters most: your mental well-being. The privacy and anonymity provided by teletherapy can be appealing to those who value discretion in their mental health care. With teletherapy, you can attend sessions from anywhere, without worrying about being seen in a waiting room or office, which can be particularly attractive if you want to maintain your privacy The increased privacy and anonymity provided by teletherapy can help you feel more comfortable sharing personal and sensitive information with your therapist, which is crucial for effective therapy.
  • 9. Environmental Sustainability: Teletherapy can help to reduce the need for physical office space, transportation and related resources making it a more eco-friendly and sustainable option for mental health care. You can prioritize not only your own well-being along with the health and well-being of the environment.
  • 10. Grow in Self Awareness and Learn Important Skills: The journey of teletherapy is always one of self-growth. In teletherapy you’ll be able to engage in all the therapeutic techniques you would normally partake in an office setting. You will analyze and process past and presenting concerns to create individualized solutions to move forward. You’ll be able to hone listening and communication skills, practice self-soothing activities, learn how to cope with distress, identify your personal triggers, create goals for your future and take actionable steps to manage your challenges. Most importantly you’ll learn skills that are essential to your healing. Whether progressive muscle relaxation or positive self-talk is the skill that you need, these skills can be taught virtually just as easily as in person.
