What is Teletherapy?
In these uncertain times, Petrichor Counseling is committed to providing effective, affordable, and accessible counseling services. We offer a wide range of services via our secure, HIPAA compliant online platform. This includes individual, group, and couple’s therapy for children, adolescents, and adults. All of our clinicians providing online services are licensed and received all necessary training.
Teletherapy, or online therapy, functions the same as in-person counseling, but can be done from the safety and convenience of your own home. Here are a few guidelines to best prepare you for starting online therapy:
- It doesn’t have to be the perfect setting, but make sure it’s private – somewhere you can’t be overheard or interrupted. This is in order to ensure your privacy. Your therapist will ensure the session is secure on their end.
- Make sure you have consistent internet service and a reliable and charged electronic device, whether laptop, phone, or tablet.
- Eliminate any unnecessary distractions – make sure phone is on silent (or on do not disturb, if you’re using your phone for the session) and notice if there’s any other background noise.
- Communicate with your therapist – just as with in-person counseling, it’s very important to be honest with your therapist about your goals and expectations so they can best help you.
