“COURAGE IS THE POWER TO LET GO OF THE FAMILIAR.”
– RAYMOND LINDQUIST
Teletherapy, also referred to as virtual therapy or online therapy, allows patients to meet with a therapist via video platform at their convenience.
In today’s busy world, it can be difficult to take the time to travel to and from appointments. Maybe you have a busy schedule that cannot afford travel time. Teletherapy has become a solution for those that wish to have the regularity of sessions without the inconvenience of travel time. Teletherapy is offered via Google meets, which is HIPPA compliant and secure platform. Having seeing patients in person since 2004, Dr. Freiman has found that her patients benefit from telehealth in the same way that they did from being in person. For some patients, they have an easier time being vulnerable and sharing via telehealth because they feel safe in their home opposed to coming into a new office. Those small little body shifts that occur and the nervous leg bounce that happen, can still be picked up on by your therapist virtually.
