Telehealth - Online Therapy
Updated: Sep 14, 2022
Telehealth video therapy is a way to talk with your therapist from the comfort of your own home. People who are experiencing depression, anxiety or other mental health issues may benefit from this type of therapy because it can be done anywhere at any time and doesn't involve sitting in an office building for hours on end. Although there are many ways to access psychotherapy over video, here at Blue Lotus Counseling, LLC we believe that our service is one of the best options available for people who want to improve their mental health without having to leave their homes or offices.
Telehealth video therapy brings mental health treatment to where you are comfortable.
Telehealth video therapy is a convenient way to access mental health care. You can choose your own time and place to meet with your therapist, so it doesn't matter if you have a busy schedule or live far away from the office. You don't have to worry about parking in downtown traffic or finding a babysitter, since the therapist can come directly to your home or office.
Telehealth also allows for more privacy than traditional in-person therapy sessions, which may be important for some people. If you are self-conscious about what other people might think of your mental health struggles, then telehealth may be a better option for you than meeting face-to-face at an office building every week.
With video therapy, the only equipment you need is a phone, tablet or computer and an internet connection.
To begin, you will need a device with a webcam and microphone. You can use any device that has a camera and audio input—computer, tablet or phone. Once you have your device ready to go, open up our app (available on iTunes or Google Play) and connect the camera to your device. You do not need an internet connection; the app will run on its own server once it is open in your web browser.
You can meet with your therapist in the comfort of your own home or any private place that you feel comfortable and safe.
You can meet with your therapist in the comfort of your own home or any private place that you feel comfortable and safe. If you live in a small apartment, having therapy sessions at home is a great way to save money on gas. It’s also convenient for those who are unable to drive, or for those who have families that would be affected by frequent visits with their therapists. You might even find that being at home allows you to open up more easily than if you were meeting somewhere else.
If being away from home doesn't bother you, however—or if there's something about the idea of being able to move around during sessions that appeals to you—then staying out of the house might be better for your well-being as well!
Our therapists are highly trained professionals who will ensure the privacy and confidentiality of your information
Our therapists are highly trained professionals who will ensure the privacy and confidentiality of your information. In fact, we have strict policies in place to protect it.
Our therapists are licensed by the state and follow standard ethical practices of all health care providers to keep your information private.
Your therapist will not share any personal or identifying information about you with anyone else outside our practice, unless there is a court order requiring him or her to do so or if there is another patient (or person) at risk of harm from self-harm or suicide due to substance abuse or mental illness (e.g., depression), which would require notification according to federal law called HIPAA ("Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act").
Your therapist will not use your personal information for marketing purposes; only for treatment purposes related directly back towards helping you better understand yourself through therapy techniques such as CBT ("cognitive behavioral therapy"), ACT ("Acceptance Commitment Therapy"), DBT "Dialectic Behavioral Therapy", etc."
There is no need to commute or sit in a waiting room.
You can meet with your therapist in the comfort of your own home or any private place that you feel comfortable and safe. You will not have to travel to a therapist’s office and waste time waiting for an appointment.
You will save money by avoiding the commute and parking fees associated with traveling to a physical therapy office.
Telehealth Video Therapy is also beneficial because it allows you to receive treatment from specialists who are located throughout the country, which means no more having to rely on local therapists!
Telehealth video therapy is a great option for people who are comfortable with technology and want to explore the world of mental health treatment in a non-traditional way. It allows you to receive treatment without having to leave your home or commute to an office, which can be very beneficial if you have limited mobility or live far away from an office location. The only equipment needed is a device like an iPhone, iPad or Android phone; laptop computer; or tablet device along with internet access through Wi-Fi, data plan or cable modem connection. You may also choose where in your house or other private location (such as backyard) works best for meeting up with your therapist so they can guide you through various exercises designed specifically for individual needs.
