Offering In-Person and Online Therapy Services
When the COVID-19 pandemic began, every therapist in the country, myself included, stopped seeing clients in person and began doing online therapy. Many therapists gave up their offices permanently and now exclusively do online therapy.
I have kept my offices in both Austin and Palo Alto but continue to offer online therapy.
Though it's not quite the same as in-person therapy, online therapy (also known as teletherapy) is turning out to be a good alternative. Many of my clients are finding that it is more convenient than coming to my office.
Does online therapy work?
Yes, it does. It isn’t quite the same as being in the same room, but it’s surprisingly good. My clients tell me that after the first few minutes, it starts to feel more like being in the same room and having a normal conversation.
Is online therapy private?
The technology of my online therapy platform, Doxy.me, is private and secure. All data is encrypted, your sessions are anonymous, and none of your information is stored. Doxy.me adheres to HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act), and GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) data privacy requirements.
Do I need a special computer for online therapy?
No. It works with any computer that has a microphone and a camera or a computer that has a webcam. It also works with smartphones and tablets.
