E-Therapy is available to people who are unable to attend therapy in the therapist’s office. You must have a webcam and be able to connect to the internet using a broadband, cable or satellite connection. Here’s how it works. You and your therapist agree upon a meeting time, you call her using Skype, Google Chat, Facetime or a messenger program such as MSN or Yahoo, and just like in face-to-face therapy, we meet in a confidential setting, except that we will be meeting on-line and viewing each other through our computers. We talk to each other through a “video-chat.” We can provide you with talk therapy this way, but are unable to provide other forms of therapy through E-Therapy. It is also important to understand that it is NOT as confidential as meeting in person. We cannot guarantee your privacy because people can access the signal over the internet. In addition, this form of therapy is not as effective as meeting face-to-face. It is always better to be in a room together. If you are interested in “video-chatting” please call us to learn more!
