What is E-Therapy?

The power of the internet has brought the world closer than ever before. The field of mental health is now riding this wave of technological advancement. People who are seeking therapeutic sessions are now able to connect directly with licensed professionals. E-therapy, also known as e-psychiatry, e-psychology or video-conferencing, is a relatively new tool allowing clients to get therapy from the comfort of their location.

How Does E-Therapy Work?

E-therapy is the most convenient way for a client to engage in counseling treatment. A person can interact with their therapist in an HIPAA compliant live video conference, text-based chat or over the phone. This format provides access to professional help for people who would otherwise find it difficult to attend traditional on-site therapy. Segments of the population that may prefer this model of treatment to a standard office visit include:

  • People with disabilities
  • People with odd schedules
  • Those with transportation issues
  • People residing in rural or isolated areas

What are the Benefits of E-Therapy?

Like any form of professional therapy, e-therapy can provide guidance, advice and diagnostic care for anyone who is experiencing tumult or confusion in their life. However, e-therapy offers many benefits that are unique to its cyber-based interactions, including the following:

  • Convenience - Clients and counselors don't have to keep a traditional schedule or select a meeting place.
  • Affordability - The costs for this type of session is essentially the same as a regular visit.
  • Privacy - For people who feel a burden of the stigma attached to seeking help, e-therapy offers increased privacy without visiting our office.

What Disorders Does E-Therapy Treat?

Most mental disorders, ranging from mild depression to more debilitating personality disorders, can be thoroughly addressed with this form of therapy, including:

  • Substance Abuse
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Relationship Issues
  • Anger Management Skills
  • Personality Disorders
