Your life was already stressful before COVID-19. Work, school, family, and bills dominated your thoughts and packed your schedule. Now, as we continue to navigate the twists and turns of this pandemic, more and more Americans are reporting an increase in stress, anxiety, and other forms of mental fatigue.

How Can Telehealth Therapy Help?

Telehealth therapy allows clients to speak with a licensed professional about their everyday struggles, but from the comfort of their own home. Without driving in traffic or sitting in waiting rooms, you can focus on what matters the most. If you’ve thought about therapy before, but felt hesitant to start, telehealth therapy would be a great introduction. Even if you’ve seen therapist in the past, telehealth therapy could still be very beneficial.

I’m too busy. How Can Telehealth therapy fit into my routine?

With telehealth therapy, you can connect with a therapist on your schedule. Additionally, many therapists are offering extended hours due to the pandemic. Whether your schedule is the standard 9 to 5, or you have a more unconventional schedule, you can schedule your telehealth therapy sessions to fit your lifestyle.

Is Telehealth Therapy Expensive?

With the added technology and convenience of telehealth therapy, many prospective clients may think that it’s more expensive compared to traditional therapy. However, that isn’t necessarily the case. Telehealth therapy is often covered by your insurance and when it’s not, many therapists offer a sliding pay scale. Cost is one of the most significant barriers that stand between potential clients and therapeutic services that they need. As more therapists recognize this, there is a willingness to be more flexible with the client’s needs.

Ready to Get Started?

As we’ve learned this year, life can be very unexpected, but you don’t have to deal with it on your own. Make telehealth therapy a part of your self-care routine to help you cope with fatigue, burnout, and much more.
