Frequently asked questions
What Is Virtual Therapy?
Virtual therapy, also known as teletherapy or online therapy, is the delivery of mental health services via videoconferencing or other technologies. It allows patients to receive therapy from a licensed therapist remotely, without having to physically visit a clinic or office.
Is Virtual Therapy As Effective As In-Person Therapy?
There is evidence to suggest that virtual therapy can be just as effective as in-person therapy for many mental health concerns.
Is Virtual Therapy Confidential?
Do I Need Special Equipment Or Software To Praticipate In Virtual Therapy?
To participate in virtual therapy over video, you will need a device with a camera and microphone, such as a computer, smartphone, or tablet, and an internet connection. You will also need a web browser (such as Chrome) to join the virtual therapy session.
Can Sessions be over the phone
Yes, if you prefer, sessions can be over a phone call instead of Video
Can Therapists Prescribe Medications?
Therapists are not licensed to prescribe medications. In order to prescribe medications, a person must be a medical doctor or a nurse practitioner. Therapists, on the other hand, are trained in providing talk therapy, which is a type of treatment that involves talking through one's thoughts and feelings with a trained professional in order to address and resolve emotional or mental health issues.
However, some psychotherapists do work closely with medical doctors or nurse practitioners who are able to prescribe medications. In these cases, the psychotherapist may provide talk therapy to the patient while the medical doctor or nurse practitioner prescribes and monitors any medications that are needed. This is often referred to as a "collaborative care" model, and it can be very effective in treating mental health conditions that require both therapy and medication.
How Do I Prepare For An Online Therapy Session?
To prepare for an online therapy session, you should:
- Choose a private and quiet location where you will not be interrupted or overheard
- Make sure you have a device with a camera and microphone, as well as an internet connection
- Test your equipment and connection before the session to ensure that everything is working properly
- Have any materials or documents that you might need during the session ready and accessible
What Should I Expect During An Online Therapy Session?
An online therapy session is similar to an in-person therapy session, with some differences due to the virtual format. You can expect to:
- Have a conversation with your therapist about your concerns and goals for therapy
- Engage in activities or exercises that your therapist suggests to help you work on specific issues or skills
- Receive support and guidance from your therapist as you work through challenges and make progress
Is Online Therapy Covered By Insurance?
