What is Teletherapy?
Teletherapy is a skilled intervention provided using live, online, video-conferencing. This allows clients to receive care without having to be in the same place at the same time. At Moving Mountains Therapy Center, we use secure, HIPAA-compliant video conferencing (via Zoom) so that clients can reach their providers even when they cannot physically make it into the office.
What are the benefits of Teletherapy?
Research has indicated that teletherapy is as good as in-person therapy for some conditions and treatment modalities. This makes teletherapy a good alternative if an in-person session is not possible. Teletherapy allows therapist to view home environments and make recommendations for modifications. This is especially beneficial for individuals with equipment and sensory needs.
What should I expect from a Teletherapy session? Teletherapy sessions are scheduled just like regular therapy appointments. We then send you an invitation to the session via Zoom. Before your first teletherapy appointment, we will have you sign a consent for teletherapy and get some information about your environment and accessible equipment and materials. The rest of the session then typically progresses like a typical in-person session. Caregiver involvement is highly recommended, especially with younger children.
