Online therapy brings all the benefits of an in-office counseling session to wherever is convenient for you.
At Great Lakes Psychology Group, we take pride in our ability to expand care with hundreds of therapists and multiple offices. With the addition of online therapy, we’re now able to serve individuals of all ages throughout Michigan and Illinois.
Have you considered therapy but can’t find the time? Do you live in a rural area without a nearby counseling office? Are you restricted to your living space due to medical or personal reasons? These are just a few scenarios where online therapy makes sense.
Years ago, if you were without a local mental health provider, you would have very few options for help. Even if you have access to mental healthcare locally, there are a myriad of other factors that can prevent seeking in-person psychotherapy, including physical or mental health limitations, lack of transportation, lack of childcare, time constraints, and so forth.
Thankfully, now these barriers to mental health counseling have started to diminish. With the technology available today, online psychotherapy can take place over the internet via video chat on your phone, computer, or tablet.
There’s no question that online therapy is more convenient, but is it as effective as in-person therapy?
In a study of adults seeking psychotherapy for depression at a mental health clinic, 30 participants received therapy treatment by telephone for 8 sessions. Sixty-nine percent reported they were very satisfied with the therapy.
Furthermore, they reported a significant reduction in their symptoms of depression, and 42% considered themselves to be fully recovered at the termination of their online therapy. Other studies have shown similar results.
Many clients have found online psychotherapy to be highly beneficial. In addition, unlike national online therapy services, we can match you with a local mental healthcare provider in or near the community in which you live, allowing for a stronger connection and the option to meet in-person.
If you have any questions for us or wish to make an appointment, call (800) 693-1916.
