Tele-therapy can offer greater access to clients in rural areas, college students, professionals
who travel, and many others. It offers tremendous possibilities, but it also poses some unique
challenges. While the research supports its efficacy, there are ethical, legal, and clinical
challenges that you should consider before engaging in these services. Dr. Verhaagen has been
a licensed psychologist for 28 years and has practiced tele-therapy for nearly a decade.
