Online Therapy in New York

Online therapy allows our NYC therapists to effectively treat our clients.

NYC Online Therapy

Our online NYC therapists provide psychotherapy using a confidential, secure video platform. We use the same cognitive behavioral techniques and therapies that we would have used in person while engaging with you via the teletherapy platform.

The initial session(s) focuses on conducting a comprehensive psycho-social assessment of your history and current symptoms in order to get an understanding of how your circumstances are impacting your ability to function day to day. This process allows for our therapists to determine an appropriate course of treatment using effective strategies.

Benefits of Online Therapy

Before deciding if you’d like to move forward with an online therapist, it can be helpful to explore some of the biggest benefits of online therapy.

  • Convenience
    Online therapy can help you avoid long commutes that New Yorkers know all too well. Instead of navigating trains, traffic, and other commutes, access therapy from the comfort of your own couch.
  • Accessibility
    Online therapy can offer you even more accessible treatment. If you have any concerns around traveling to a therapy office, teletherapy can offer you an ability to get the care you need despite barriers. Instead of being limited to therapists in your area only, you may have access to therapists from across your state. New York Behavioral Health therapists are licensed to offer treatment to individuals, couples, and families, all across New York state.
  • Confidentiality
    New York Behavioral Health therapists use a secure, confidential teletherapy EHR platform to ensure that your treatment is just as private as if you met in our offices.
  • Effectiveness
    Evidence has shown that online therapy is just as effective as in-person therapy.

What is Online Therapy in NYC?

Online therapy, or teletherapy, is therapy that is provided by a licensed therapist or psychologist via a secure video connection.

While online therapy has become much more common in the last few years, teletherapy has existed for decades in the United States and is considered a highly effective method for therapy delivery.

If you’ve ever communicated with a friend or family member via FaceTime or Zoom, online therapy is very similar, except highly secure and confidential, and with a licensed or qualified mental health professional.

Our therapists use a HIPAA Compliant & Fully Secure EHR platform where they communicate with clients through a client portal.

Online therapy is your typical psychotherapy that’s conducted over the internet. You might be used to therapy that’s held in person at an office or clinical setting. The great thing about online therapy is that you can continue meeting with your therapist from the comfort of your own home, without the hassle of traveling or worrying about COVID-19 exposure.

Is Online Therapy Effective?

Online therapy is useful for a wide variety of people. Evidence has shown that online therapy is just as effective as in-person therapy.

Online therapy is also not just useful during these unusual times. You might find that meeting with your therapist from the comfort of your own home might be something you’d like to continue after social distancing requirements ease up. If so, feel free to continue seeking that virtual therapy. New York Behavioral Health will continue providing that option for your convenience.
