You may be new to the idea of teletherapy, or meeting with a therapist online. It’s a relatively new concept that leverages technology to solve common access problems. Therapy and psychiatry appointments are made more convenient by eliminating commute times, transportation costs, and geographic limitations, making mental health care more accessible to everyone.
Like meeting in person but with less hassle
