Telehealth counseling for any client in ColoradoI am excited to be able to offer my specialized services to Coloradans who may not have local access to trauma-informed care. Historically, people in rural areas or those dealing with mobility issues have had a serious disadvantage when it comes to accessing quality care. Luckily, technology has changed that.
Access and Care for Everyone
How Telehealth Counseling Can Help
There are many advantages to telehealth counseling. The truth is, you have options and there is no need to feel alone. Whether you pursue individual counseling through a physical visit or online treatment, you should consider the following advantages of telehealth before making a final decision.
Video conferencing opens a doorway to a wider selection of days and times your therapist can be available for appointments. Often, people avoid treatment due to thinking they don’t have the time for self-care. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Even if you have a busy personal life or heavy work schedule, you will find the flexibility you need with telehealth counseling.
Expanded Access of Care
Therapy and relapse care aren’t only for those within driving distance to a therapist or who live in a big city. Teletherapy grants access to numerous options that only years ago weren’t available. As long as you have internet access, you can receive the quality care you deserve and live the life you’ve always wanted. Telehealth makes care available to those without transportation, who have other mobility challenges, or who live rurally.
Preferred Option in a Modern World
Telehealth is rapidly becoming the preferred option for those seeking therapy. A virtual visit ensures that even those experiencing illness or sudden time constraints but still want to have a meeting can do so without risking exposure to others.
Fewer Missed Appointments
Everyone knows that therapy is important, but sometimes other things get in the way. Telehealth counseling statistics show that patients miss fewer appointments than with a traditional meeting schedule. There are so many unknowns in the course of a day, from traffic jams to working late. The flexibility of telehealth says that my clients can meet with me whenever they want. With the click of a button, our session begins.
Improved Patient Engagement
Telehealth releases patients from all of the hurdles of traditional appointments. They don’t have to drive to a new area, wait in a waiting room, or experience the initial anxiety of meeting someone new in an unfamiliar environment. Telehealth allows you to be in the comfort of your own home. This reduces stress and allows you to be open and have a quality discussion without the roadblocks.
Expands Practice Hours
Telehealth enables me the option to expand practice hours. The rigid structure of traditional appointments means that you have to stay within the lines, but with telehealth, not so much. This provides therapy options to those with unusual work hours or who have limited availability. Many people believe they don’t have time for therapy, which leads to learning to live with it instead of taking steps that lead to recovery.
Improves Client Satisfaction
When putting all of these factors together, my clients’ satisfaction is improved with telehealth. The quality of my care remains high, but the ease of access, availability, and comfort of appointments ensures that clients can meet from wherever they want and be themselves.
