Telehealth is the use of communication technologies, such as computers and mobile devices, to deliver and facilitate health and health-related services including medical care, client education, health information services and psychotherapy.
Research has found that psychotherapy conducted via computer or mobile devices is equally as effective as in-person therapy, especially when it comes to general anxiety, depression, life transitions, and family dynamics.
Teletherapy sessions work much like the in-person variety. You make an appointment in advance with a therapist, but instead of traveling to an office, you get on your computer and receive a confidential link to your email to gain access to a video waiting room.
You can be anywhere to receive telehealth services – at home, at the office during lunch, and regardless of the weather or lack of transportation. Telehealth allows you to be in a place where you are most comfortable. It eliminates drive time – saves time and gas. Also, If you travel out of the Los Angeles area you can still attend Telehealth sessions from wherever you are.
