Frequently Asked Questions

What are some common types of online therapy?

Many therapeutic techniques that are practiced in a brick-and-mortar setting can effectively be used in telehealth as well. As mental health clinicians, our primary tools are our voice and our language, and telehealth presents no barriers to their use.

Many therapists are practicing the same types of therapy online as they do in a brick-and-mortar setting. Telehealth technology can support individuals, couples, family, and group therapy. Therapists frequently use evidence-based treatment such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectal Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Motivational Interviewing, and others.
