Who is a Candidate for Online Therapy
Truly almost anyone can benefit from online therapy as long as you have a comfortable space and a reliable internet connection. At Fresno Health and Wellness we treat patients online in the state of California. Online therapy can help you connect with the person of choice rather than being nailed down to seeing someone in your general area. However, if you are interested in online therapy you must speak to one of our therapists to ensure you are a good fit for this type of treatment.
How Reliable is Online Therapy?
Studies have shown that online therapy is just as effective as traditional in office therapy. With free time being impacted in our “on the go” world we now live in, online therapy is very resourceful. Also, online therapy has been proven to be a helpful tool in remote areas to eliminate commute times or to avoid heavy traffic areas. Building rapport in an online platform is not as difficult as you may think as generationally we are moving more toward online communication for most areas of our lives. Online therapy is just following that trend. As such, reaching people where they are comfortable is the desire of each therapist, so it makes sense to use an online platform to reach many more.
How Does Online Therapy Work?
Online therapy has been shown to be just as affective in treating anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, and general life stress as face-to-face sessions. Therapy is approached in the same manner as traditional in office therapy but from the comfort of your own space. A new patient packet will be emailed to sign office agreement, confidentiality statement and to provide some back ground. At that time you will also place a credit card on file for payments related to your sessions. You will be scheduled a date and time for your session that fits your needs. During that session you will connect with the therapist on a secure video connection to ensure confidentiality. It is suggested to set yourself in a space that is private and that others cannot hear your conversation. Payments will be submitted to your card on file after the session and a monthly receipt will be emailed to you upon request.
