What is tele-therapy?
Tele-therapy is an online counseling service from the comfort of your home or from anywhere you choose to be. The services are provided confidentially using video conferencing that is HIPAA compliant. This is a virtual face-to-face setting that is similar to Skype.
Is Tele-therapy Effective?
Teletherapy is best suited for those who suffer from anxiety, depression, or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Research has demonstrated that tele-therapy using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is as effective as when used in traditional settings (Tutty, Spangler, Poppleton, Ludman, & Simon 2010). In addition, Tugoose, Ashwick, and Murphy (2017) found that tele-therapy is as effective as traditional in person counseling in helping reduce the symptoms of PTSD.
Will My insurance pay for Tele-therapy?
We offer self-pay services and accept Medicaid (SoonerCare).
What is the cost?
One hour sessions for Oklahoma residents are $80 (person must be in the state to participate). If using insurance rates will be based on individual insurance plan and if we accept that insurance. Check out https://teletherapytexas.com for services in Texas.
What is the difference between your service and other popular online therapy services?
Our services are not subscription-based like some of the popular online services out there. You don’t pay weekly or monthly fees. You only pay for the session you attend as traditional therapy.
