“Online therapy is quickly becoming a superior alternative to the traditional therapy office visit. In addition to benefits like increased privacy, convenience, and the saving of time and money, scientific studies prove online therapy to be as effective–and in some cases, even more beneficial–than in-person therapy.”
-Dr. Steve Orma
In a comprehensive review of numerous studies on the effectiveness of online therapy, the Journal of Technology in Human Services found there was “strong support for the adoption of online psychological interventions as a legitimate therapeutic activity…”
A 2010 study in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry found that video-based anger management therapy was just as effective as face-to-face therapy for a group of 125 combat veterans with PTSD.
A 2013 study in the Journal of Affective Disorders found that online therapy for depression was equally beneficial as regular face-to-face therapy, and online therapy was even better in the long-term for maintaining reduction of symptoms.
“In the right hands of well-trained therapists, the texting approach may offer a more personal encounter than face-to-face meetings with therapists who rigidly follow mechanized behavioral manuals,”
-Dr. Irvin D. Yalom
