So teletherapy comes with lots of positives, says Cook, and could help more people access treatment. There is a flip side, though, starting with technology. “The software has to be there,” acknowledges Cook. “You have to have a reliable Internet source for video calls. We have to make sure the vulnerable folks who are left behind already won’t be further left behind because now they don’t have the right Wi-Fi or bandwidth or whatever.”
I can say that I didn’t like it as much. But for people who haven’t been able to get therapy in a physical space, there’s no doubt at all this is a massive improvement.
