Online therapy at Healthy Behaviors of Westchester refers to video conferencing (Skype®) or phone sessions.  Although face-to-face therapy is preferable (and required when able), video sessions (phone sessions) can be a viable alternative to traditional in-office treatment.  Certain situations limit individuals from getting needed treatment.  If after an initial phone evaluation and if deemed appropriate, virtual therapy can be conducted instead of in-office psychotherapy.  Video therapy has been deemed appropriate under some of the following circumstances:

  • Person lives in an area where a therapist/expert is not available
  • College students
  • Work travel
  • Disorder prevents individual from leaving their home
  • When a home-visit is not possible
  • When medical condition prevents travel
