Telehealth is a technology where one receives psychotherapy through online services. The client communicates directly with their mental health provider via video chat. The communication is secure and compliant with HIPPA. Telehealth helps clients and their families with access to treatment while at home, traveling, or any location where one has access to internet services. Telehealth therapy has been shown to be an effective intervention for individuals, couples, and families.
