Does Telehealth Work?
We offer Telehealth now for all of California. Our licenses are to practice within California only so the patient must be physically in our state to engage in care. In special cases, we can get permission from other state Boards to practice temporarily in patient is on vacation or relocating.
Through Telehealth, our counselors provide support via video and phone conference for many areas of concern: problem-solving skills, and enhanced coping strategies for issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship troubles.
Research supports individual counseling is as effective via Telehealth models! There is less research available for families and couples care, however, it's logical to conclude some support is better than no support. The benefits you obtain from any therapy depend on how well you use the process and put into practice what you learn.
Some of the growth opportunities and therapy benefits from utilizing our Telehealth counseling service includes:
Better understanding of how family dynamics work
More comfort and relaxation being in your own home
Convenient and can be done without traveling to an office
Opportunity to include parents more easily
Most insurance plans cover this
We can offer sliding scale and discounts
Therapists have more flexibility in scheduling clients as well
We are sensitive to the following challenges associated with Telehealth: confidentiality, privacy and access to technology. Please let us know if you have any of these concerns
So, if you are on the fence regarding Telehealth, we'd encourage you to try it.
At Grow Through Life Counseling we are excited to reach more and extend our services help those who don't have transportation, are in rural areas with limited access, are sick and/or have immune concerns which prevent them from coming to in person care.
(Please note: all of our onsite locations do offer in person care as well!)
