Remote therapy, also called teletherapy, is a form of psychotherapy in which a psychotherapist meets with a client via telephone, cellular phone, the internet, or other electronic media in place of or in addition to conventional face-to-face psychotherapy.
Face-to-face therapy generally is preferable to remote therapy, and there are certain circumstances in which a therapist may choose not to offer remote therapy to a particular client. Therapists should conduct an initial assessment to determine the appropriateness of remote therapy to be provided for the client before regular sessions are undertaken.
Most therapists will not do remote therapy with clients who reside in a different state. If you are looking for a therapist that will work with you remotely, we highly recommend you search for Open Path therapists located in your state that have the “offers remote therapy” label on their profile. If you have questions about how to do this, please feel free to get in touch with us at email@example.com.
