During a virtual or telehealth session, the therapist uses a variety of techniques to help the client address their mental health concerns based on the tailored approach of what is and isn’t working. While we may sometimes be slightly limited behind a screen, we’re still able to do activities, worksheets, emotional processing, and homework, just as we would during an in-person session.
Virtual counseling is subject to the same legal and ethical standards as in-person counseling, and sessions are kept confidential. It's also important for the individual to have a stable internet connection and a quiet, private space for the session to ensure privacy and confidentiality of the conversation. Likewise, we will meet you from a secure location and will have a back-up plan if we begin to have connectivity issues.
Whether you’re sick, needing to schedule for your lunch break while at work, live too far from the office, or just have a hard time leaving the house, there are several reasons why someone might choose virtual counseling over in-person counseling, including:
- Convenience: Virtual counseling allows individuals to receive therapy from the comfort of their own home or any location that is convenient for them. This can be particularly beneficial for those who have difficulty leaving their home due to mobility issues, transportation difficulties, or childcare responsibilities.
- Accessibility: Virtual counseling makes therapy more accessible to individuals who live in rural or remote areas, or who have mobility or transportation issues. It also offers more flexible scheduling options for individuals with busy schedules or those who are unable to take time off work for in-person therapy.
- Safety: While sick, recovering from surgery, or during intense anxiety, virtual counseling can be an alternative to in-person therapy that allows people to continue getting the help they need.
Modern technology gives you the option to meet despite the challenges listed above. Virtual therapy can be just as effective as in-person therapy for almost everyone, and as long as you’re in the state of Texas, we’re here to help.
