I now provide teletherapy services to those who are a resident of Texas. Teletherapy is therapy via a webcam instead of in the therapist’s office. Teletherapy is helpful for times you cannot make it to the therapist’s office, or if you do not live within driving distance of the therapist. Besides driving costs and time, teletherapy is also easier to schedule.
However, teletherapy is not without its downside. As we are not face to face, it may be harder to communicate and understand each other. Body language is more difficult to read, and at times, technical interruptions may occur. Also, it is possible someone may ease drop onto the session, even if security is in place.
For all teletherapy sessions, I use a service called Secure Video. This service is HIPAA compliant and encrypts the video and audio feed. This means it would be extremely difficult for our sessions to be viewable by others. Unlike most therapists who use Skype, I use Secure Video to protect your confidentially.

I prefer meeting clients face to face before teletherapy sessions are conducted and prefer some sessions in person. Note, hourly rates, and therapeutic practices are the same in teletherapy as in face to face therapy.
