The Success of Online Therapy

The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the adoption of videoconferencing as a medium for delivering mental health services. Here's what the research from the National Library of Medicine says about the effectiveness of online therapy:

Evidence-Based Success: Videoconferencing has a well-established evidence base in delivering cognitive behavioral therapies (CBT) for conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, and bulimia nervosa. Studies have shown that treatments like prolonged exposure, cognitive processing therapy, and behavioral activation delivered via videoconferencing are non-inferior to in-person therapy.

Positive Outcomes: Large trials have reported the efficacy of online therapy for health anxiety and bulimia nervosa compared to treatment-as-usual. Initial studies also show that online CBT is applicable for other anxiety and eating disorders and obsessive-compulsive spectrum disorders.

Therapeutic Alliance: While therapists may find it more challenging to judge non-verbal behavior initially, and clients may take some time to adapt to the videoconferencing format, clients rate the therapeutic alliance similarly to in-person therapy. In some cases, videoconferencing may even be less confronting for clients.

Convenience and Accessibility: Videoconferencing provides unique opportunities to integrate therapeutic exercises within the client’s day-to-day environment, making therapy more accessible and practical for many.

How to Access a Therapist in Maryland

Accessing a therapist can be challenging, but taking that first step is crucial for your mental health journey. Here are some practical tips to help you find a therapist in Maryland, inspired by the insights shared by Gabby, the owner and Clinical Director of Recovered and Restored Eating Disorder Therapy Center.

Tips from Recovered and Restored

1. Decide on Payment Method: Private Pay vs. Insurance

Determine if you want to use your insurance or pay privately. Some practices, like Recovered and Restored, are private pay only but offer sliding scale fees based on financial need and therapist expertise. You can find our therapsits base fees here on our website.

4. Utilize Word-of-Mouth Referrals

2. Choose Between In-Person and Virtual Therapy

Post-pandemic, many practices offer both in-person and virtual therapy. Virtual therapy allows you to meet with a therapist from the comfort of your home and can provide unique insights into your environment. At Recovered & Restored, all our sessions are virtual, allowing for the most convenience to our clients.

3. Identify Your Priorities

Consider what is important to you in a therapist, and identifying your preferences will help narrow your search. Think about the therapeutic approach: do you prefer a therapist who specializes in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), or another specific modality?

Start by asking people you trust for recommendations. Friends, family, coworkers, or even your primary care doctor might have valuable suggestions. Personal referrals often lead to good matches because the referrer understands your needs.

Use search engines to find therapists near you. Search terms like "therapist near me," "virtual therapist in Maryland," or "eating disorder therapist in Maryland" can yield useful results.

Many therapists offer initial consultation calls to help determine if they are a good fit for you. Take advantage of these calls to ask questions and get a feel for their approach. You can meet out team at Recovered and Restored here and decide who might be a good fit for you.

7. Prepare for Your Intake Session

Once you've chosen a therapist, schedule your intake session. These sessions, which can last from 30 to 90 minutes, are designed to gather your background information and discuss your therapy goals. If you're feeling overwhelmed, it's okay to express that and take breaks as needed.

8. Leverage Additional Resources

If cost is a concern, explore options like Project HEAL for financial assistance or ask your insurance about single case agreements, which can help cover therapy costs. Also, you can check out our resources page, download our free mini course, and social media guide.
