Pros and Cons of Long Distance Therapy
Posted by Member: Arva Rose
Arva Rose MFT has been in practice for nearly 30 years and now works from home.
Please read all of the NYTimes article below. You may not have considered some of these issues.
The best long distance therapy is something I have been practicing by phone alone for years. Phone therapy. But that phone therapy has been with an established client who is bi-coastal, or sick or away on business or in show business etc.
It is unquestionably a better thing to do if the patient is already a known commodity to the therapist and vice versa. But if after reading the following article, a person is still interested in doing therapy with me, I suggest going to my website www.arvarose.com and contacting me by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Although Arva is licensed in the State of California and has been in practice for nearly 30 years, since she is not in the office face-to-face with a client, (which is what is sanctioned by her license in this state) these therapy sessions must be categorized as advice, consultation, or even entertainment.
