Online Mental Health
Online mental health therapy is a revolutionary form of treatment that has become increasingly popular in recent years. Dr. Judy Guess has been providing online therapy for adolescents and adults in Ohio since 2017. (Yes, that's before Covid 19 made it's appearance.)
Convenient and Efficient
Online mental health services provide an unprecedented level of convenience and efficiency that can be beneficial for those who have difficulty accessing traditional face-to-face therapy due to geographical or other constraints. Online therapy makes it much easier for individuals to receive treatment without having to leave the comfort and safety of their own home. This eliminates the need to worry about finding transportation or taking time off from work, and allows for more flexibility when it comes to scheduling.
Online mental health therapy has also become increasingly popular among college students in recent years, providing a convenient and effective way to access support, guidance, and treatment. Research conducted by the American Psychological Association revealed that approximately 20% of all college students reported seeking help for mental health issues at some point during their studies. This number is even higher for students who have experienced trauma or have struggled with anxiety and depression. Because of this, Dr. Judy Guess has made it her mission to provide quality mental health care and support to students at Ohio institutions.
Is Online Therapy for Me?
Virtual therapy can be a great way to make time and space to allow for self-exploration and growth. The online platform has been shown to have similar outcomes as in-person treatment with patient satisfaction and self-reported personal growth. However, online therapy is not for everyone. Major mental illnesses such as bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, or severe panic disorder are better treated with in-person teams. Also, if you are struggling with significant alcohol or substance abuse, then online therapy is most likely not the right level of care. Most importantly, if you are experiencing suicidal thoughts, you should seek care immediately at your local emergency room or call 911.
How Does Online Therapy Work?
The ongoing advancement of technology has made online therapy not only a possibility, but also a convenience. Dr. Guess offers HIPPA-compliant video appointments for clients in Ohio. Online therapy gives you the convenience, flexibility, and freedom to care for your emotional health from the comfort of your own space.
Telehealth is a relatively recent technology that allows clients and psychologists to meet outside of a physical office. The face-to-face connection stays intact using video sessions. Online counseling allows the therapeutic relationship to foster and grow in a natural way.
Not all situations are ideal for online counseling. In some cases, in-person visits are more beneficial.
Does Insurance Cover Online Therapy?
With new technology comes changes for insurance. Your coverage is dictated by your insurance company and policy. To check with your insurer, you can ask if online counseling is covered.
