Telehealth offers individuals and couples the opportunity to engage in therapy from a remote location using a computer, cell phone or any other portable device.
The treatment process in telehealth is the same as the one that takes place in an office. We ask the client who engages in telehealth to join the sessions in a space that is calm, confidential, and where the client can express freely. This can be their bedroom, car, or a private room in a close by library.
The first appointment through telehealth may seem a bit confusing as technology has to be learned and throughout the first session the therapist and the client may have to work out issues related to the use of portable devices. All of our services are available through telehealth using the Zoom app.
When using a portable device or a computer, the therapist can share with the client, videos, exercises fill out worksheets, and everything else you would get in an office. Though all of our services are available through telehealth we do not recommend children to engage in telehealth unless there is no other option.
However, once this is all under control, the first appointment is the time for the therapist and the client to get to know each other, establish rapport, and share important information so that the treatment can incorporate the biopsychosocial components of the clients.
