WHY CHOOSE VIDEO THERAPY?
The fundamental advantages of video therapy are convenience and comfort. Instead of traveling to my office—face the traffic, spend your time driving—you can schedule our sessions around your schedule at home or in your office. Your therapy doesn’t have to be put on hold because of your travel schedule. The crucial component of video therapy is you being in control of the time and space dedicated to therapy. All you need is a quiet space, where you can focus and connect.
DOES VIDEO THERAPY WORK AS WELL AS FACE-TO-FACE THERAPY?
For many people, video therapy seems to be just as effective as face-to-face therapy.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy seems especially effective in an online setting. In fact, there are some instances where it may be more effective, possibly because it focuses more on self-help. While more research is being done on video therapy, I have found it effective for many of my clients.
No method of therapy is good for all clients—just like no therapist is a good fit for all clients. Some people may be uncomfortable with technology. Others may be more likely to respond to treatment when they meet the therapist face-to-face.
Video therapy is the best option when you want to make the most of your time.
