Teletherapy is effective for mental health in a number of ways. Patients don’t have to leave their homes to go to a therapist. Many people find it easier to talk about their problems with a therapist online than in person. For some patients it removes the stigma of seeing a mental-health professional and provides privacy and convenience.
Individual and couple services can also be provided via teletherapy if you are currently residing anywhere within California. An easy, secure HIPAA compliant video system will allow you to obtain services within the comfort of your own home and provides a unique therapeutic experience with COPE staff.
There are many different tools that can be used for online therapy. Internet-connected computers, smartphones, tablets, and internet-enabled gaming devices are all possible options.
An internet-connected computer will allow the therapist to see what the patient is doing on their screen. This allows for more interactive sessions and gives therapists the opportunity to tailor what they say to their patient’s reactions.
