Online Therapy In Pennsylvania

Benefits of Online Therapy in Pennsylvania

There are many benefits and positives to online therapy!  Mental health therapy is basically at your finger tips.  Here are some benefits we want to highlight:

  • Convenience: Access therapy from the comfort of your home or wherever you are in Pennsylvania, without commuting to an office.

  • Flexibility: Schedule sessions at times that suit you.  Along with convenience, you don't have to account for extra time on driving or commuting to an office.

  • Comfort in Familiar Surroundings: Being in your own space can make opening up easier.  You can have your favorite blanket with you, sit in your own chair... you don't even have to worry about an office being too hot or too cold!

  • Wider Selection of Therapists: Choose from a broader range of therapists statewide, not just those in your locality.

  • Anonymity and Privacy: Online therapy offers more discretion, without the need to visit a therapist's office.

  • Reduced Stigma: Engaging in therapy from home can lessen the stigma or anxiety some feel about seeking mental health support.  Even at this time, mental health therapy is still stigmatized to some extent, it is unfortunate, but is the current reality.  With joining in virtual therapy, you don't have to leave an event early or walk by someone you know on the way to therapy.

  • Accessibility for Individuals with Mobility Issues: It's an ideal option for those who find traveling difficult. 

  • Continuity in Changing Circumstances: Even if you move within Pennsylvania, you can maintain the same therapist.  Having a therapeutic relationship is so important, and by having therapy online, you don't have to worry about starting the therapy process all over again.

  • Therapy in a Safe Environment: For those with anxiety or phobias, starting therapy in a familiar environment can be beneficial.  Even if you are experiencing depression and it makes it hard to get out of your house or even your bed, therapy is at your fingertips.  

  • Ease of Use: Modern platforms make joining and participating in online sessions straightforward.

Limitations of Online Therapy

Online therapy, aka teletherapy, is not for everyone.  We recognize that some may benefit from in person therapy over virtual therapy, and that is okay.  Everyone has different needs and different goals in therapy. 

  • Technology Issues: Poor internet connection or tech glitches can disrupt sessions.

  • Limited Crisis Management: Online therapists may not be able to provide immediate assistance in a crisis situation.

  • Confidentiality Concerns: While online therapy platforms are designed to be secure, you may find that the space that you are in may not lend itself to be private.

  • Insurance Coverage and Reimbursement: Depending on the state and the insurance provider, coverage for online therapy might be different from in-person sessions. Some clients in Pennsylvania may find that their insurance does not cover online therapy or offers limited coverage, making it a less accessible option for them.
