Telehealth Therapy for Adults

Start Telehealth Therapy for Adults

Today, you can do almost anything on the internet from buying a new car to chatting with your friends around the globe. For the past several decades, healthcare professionals have been developing ways to utilize the increased connectivity of the internet to offer greater access to treatment. At Family Connections Therapy, we use a telehealth communication platform to conduct therapy sessions online. Via video chat software, we’re able to talk face-to-face with you just like we would in the office. You can learn more about adult telehealth therapy sessions on this page or call our team to find out more.


What is Telehealth?

Telehealth, which you may have heard called something like virtual or online counseling or teletherapy, is a way of utilizing video chat platforms to conduct therapy sessions. At Family Connections Therapy, we’re excited to provide this option that delivers many benefits for our clients, including:

  • Greater access – we’re able to provide the same quality of care for those in our San Diego community and across the entire state of California via online counseling sessions.
  • Convenience – if you can’t get away from work or school to come into our office for regular sessions, you can still visit us consistently using teletherapy.
  • Increased comfort – if you struggle to relax and open up in the office, online sessions can help you feel more at peace. When you’re in your own home where you feel more relaxed, you may be able to talk more openly.

How Does it Work?

We offer teletherapy using a secure and private HIPAA-compliant platform. This form of counseling may be new to you, but we will help you feel completely prepared for the teletherapy session. We offer regular 45 to 50-minute telehealth sessions and 25-minute sessions. Below, we’ve included the basic steps to help you feel prepared for your online visit:

Before Your Session:

  • You’ll receive an email from your clinician with a link to the teletherapy platform.
  • For the session, you’ll need a computer, smartphone, or other devices with a camera, microphone, speakers, and internet connection.
  • Plan to conduct your session in a private space where you feel comfortable.

The Day of Your Session:

  • About five to ten minutes before your scheduled appointment time, click on the link from your clinician.
  • Enter your name and complete any other prompts that appear when you access the telehealth platform.
  • Enable the audio and video buttons on your screen.
  • When your therapist logs in, they will connect with you
  • Then, you should see your therapist, and your session will begin.

Are Teletherapy Sessions Right for Me?

Teletherapy is a convenient way to work with your therapist! Because our platform is HIPPA-compliant, it is just as secure as seeing your therapist in person. There are may reasons why you may want to visit with a therapist from your own home. Sometimes, there’s too much traffic or it’s raining. Other times, you are just too tired to get dressed and get into the car. No problem. Just open your telehealth therapy link, and you are in a virtual office without the stress or time of driving to our physical location. Your therapist will be in a secure (according to HIPPA-compliance standards) area of either their own home or our office. From anywhere in California, we can see you in the comfort of your own home.

Online therapy may be new to you, but we can make the process easy and straightforward. When you’re ready to learn more, the Family Connections Therapy team would love to hear from you.
