This is a personal preference for most people. There have been multiple studies conducted over the past year showing that telehealth for therapy has been just as effective as in-person visits. Many people choose telehealth due to convenience, safety reasons, mobility from home due to a disability or lack of transportation to an office. Others has said this saves them time and money to not locate and pay for childcare or time off work. Without a telehealth option available, many people would never be able to seek services. Telehealth is not recommended for those in an acute crisis.
Many people prefer In-person appointments as they feel they can't replace the personal connection of face to face interaction. They enjoy the intimacy of in-person therapy and don't have the privacy at home. Some individuals like a "hybrid" use of both telehealth and in-person.
Both options are offered at North Valley Center for Hope. We follow CDC guidelines for in-person visits.
