Does online therapy actually work?

Teletherapy can be just as effective as meeting a therapist in person, research and experts shows, it could also help alleviate the shortage of mental healthcare providers. “There are a number of studies looking at telemedicine for different kinds of disorders and they tend to be amazingly effective,” said vice chair for research in the department of psychology at Georgetown University Medical Center.

Studies have found that cognitive behavioral therapy, a type of talk therapy, is just as successful via telephone or Skype as it is face-to-face for some mental health conditions.
