Wow. What a year!
If you are in the State of Texas but do not have the time to come into the Counseling office or are on the road frequently, then telehealth therapy may be something that would be best suited to your life. I have day and limited evening sessions available.
Telehealth (or telemedicine) is a fairly recent innovation. Telehealth allows the facilitation of health-related services to patients via live video conferencing. Thanks to modern technology, just about everyone in the U.S. has a smart phone or tablet capable of video chat. This ease of access to make video calls has revolutionized the health industry, allowing doctors and nurses to interact with patients through a convenient phone call.
Using your smart phone, you can consult with a nurse, a physician or a mental health professional to receive ongoing care when your primary care physician is unavailable, to get a prescription refilled, review test results or medical summaries or to have a remote therapy or counseling appointment.
Telehealth appointments can be very beneficial if getting to a traditional in-person appointment is a hassle for you. If you lack the time or resources to use public transportation, are physically disabled or live in a remote area, Telehealth appointments can help by removing the need to leave your home to attend an appointment.
So if this sounds like you:
- You don’t have the right type of Therapist nearby
- You lack the time or resources to get to an in-person therapy appointment
- You want the ease and convenience of a video conference appointment
… then Telehealth services may be just what you need.
The convenience of scheduling an appointment through a phone app cannot be understated. Quickly pick a date and time, and you’ve scheduled your online appointment. There’s no need to get ready, or even leave your bed or couch. If you have social anxiety or phobias that cause you to avoid social interactions, Telehealth makes it easier for you to get therapy.
