What is Telehealth?
Telehealth involves therapy that is provided to you by different types of communication technology. Dr. Chapman can provide therapy via phone or video. She can guide you through your challenges using these types of communication technology. She often offers this type of distance therapy as either a main way to communicate with those who are seeking therapy or as an adjunct to in-person therapy. Many people prefer this type of treatment because it can give them the benefits of therapy in their own homes or while traveling.
Who Can use Telehealth?
Telehealth can be a good option for people who cannot access therapy due to location, health, or transportation issues. It may also be appealing to people who do not wish to meet in an office. As many aspects of life are now available online, Telehealth therapy is also a way of keeping up with the digital world.
Is It Effective?
Studies have shown that this type of distance therapy can be as effective as face-to-face therapy for many issues such as:
Anxiety Disorders including: generalized anxiety, panic disorder, phobias, and obsessive compulsive disorder
Grief and Loss
Cognitive behavioral therapy is well suited for online therapy as the self-help assignments can be demonstrated and delivered in this fashion.
Is Telehealth Right For You?
This type of distance therapy may be a good choice for you if: commuting would be difficult for you, you have a busy schedule, or leaving home would be an issue.
