Telehealth

Are you wondering whether Telepsychotherapy is comparable to in-office sessions?

While Telepsych has become very  popular, out of necessity, during the COVID-19 pandemic, research has previously demonstrated that it can be as effective as in-office psychotherapy for many problems.

Telepsychotherapy is:
as effective as in-office sessions for many problems.
viewed positively by clients.
more convenient for many people.
video-chat sessions may lessen the stigma of seeking help for some people, i.e. they don’t have to go to the office.

Do you live in a rural area where there are fewer behavioral health specialists?

Possible disadvantages of telepsych:
There is less nonverbal communication than in an office session.
Potential for tech. difficulties, e.g. getting disconnected or inadvertently muted.
You assume responsibility for maintaining confidentiality on your end.

And NOW Dr. Faier-Routman can see clients via telehealth who live outside of Illinois, her home state.

Thanks to a recent initiative, PSYPACT, accredited psychologists can work with clients via teleconferencing in the following states:

Arizona, Colorado, Delaware, District of Columbia (DC), Georgia, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, 

New Hampshire, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Virginia.

What that means is that if you are having difficulty finding a psychologist  with the expertise you need in your vicinity, consider working with Dr. Faier-Routman via teleconferencing.

Telehealth provides a platform for counseling and therapy  using HIPAA-compliant, video-conferencing.

This can take place wherever you have privacy and a computer or smartphone.
