Teletherapy is the online delivery of mental health therapy services via high-resolution, live video conferencing. Teletherapy sessions are very similar to traditional mental health sessions with one major exception. Instead of sitting in the same room, patients and therapists interact via live video conferencing.
During therapy sessions, the patient and therapist can see, hear, and interact with one another in real time, using webcams, headsets, and a live, synchronous online environment.
If you’ve ever used Skype on your computer or FaceTime on your iPhone, you’ve used a similar type of technology.
The actual therapy is the same as the therapist would deliver face-to-face, only teletherapy is done with a computer! Nonie Griscom uses traditional therapy techniques and activities and enhance those techniques through innovative software and tools and has the technology to plan and deliver high-quality services.
