Many people believe that Telehealth represents the future of healthcare. It is a way of using video conferencing and sometimes the telephone to connect you with your health care provider. Although many people are finding out about this style of healthcare for the first time Telehealth and Teletherapy have actually been growing in popularity for years and are now covered by most insurance plans.
Dr. Readett and Dr. Gallacher have been on the forefront of this Teletherapy movement and have seen firsthand the benefits of connecting with clients in this way. Research has shown that Telehealth and Teletherapy in particular can be as effective as meeting in person and in some cases may be even more beneficial. The majority of clients actually report higher satisfaction with Teletherapy than traditional meetings once they try it.
Some of the important benefits of telehealth are that it allows you to get effective mental health treatment in the comfort and privacy of your own home. This is often more convenient, more confidential, and is often easier to work into your busy schedule. We know that there are many challenging sources of stress during this pandemic, and under these unique circumstances we encourage you to consider if Teletherapy might be beneficial for you.
Teletherapy typically follows a similar course to in person therapy. After a thorough intake we collaborate to develop a treatment plan that is specifically designed to address your issues of concern. This usually involves a multi-theoretical approach combining skills and techniques from a variety of sources and styles of therapy. Most commonly our treatment approach centers around mindfulness, but every client and every situation is a unique. If you think we might be a good fit for you we invite you to reach out and contact us. We are both licensed in New York State and are covered by most major New York State insurances. A private pay fee schedule is available upon request. We look forward to hearing from you!
