Virtual Therapy…what’s it all about?

As summer approaches, many of us are filled with the excitement of warmer weather, longer daylight hours, the beach, cookouts with friends, and summer vacations.  Many of the college students in Savannah will enjoy a break from classes and return to their hometowns to work and spend time with family and friends.  Summer is a fun and exciting time for many, but it can also be a time of concern for those who are in ongoing therapy.   Many may worry how they will continue their therapy when they are traveling or living in a new place for the summer.

Online therapy, also known as virtual therapy, is a service that some therapists are now offering to their clients.  An online therapy session works like an in person therapy session, except that all of the communication is done through a secure and private virtual video chat. For those that travel for work and pleasure and for those students who may be moving home for the summer, online therapy is a wonderful option.  Online therapy can also prove extremely helpful for clients who may have physical limitations and find it hard to travel to a counseling practice.  It can also help clients who live in rural or remote areas where they do not have access to qualified mental health professionals.

If you find yourself wondering how to fit therapy into your busy lifestyle or how you will continue therapy when you travel home for the summer or vacation with your family, then online therapy may be just the thing you’re looking for.
