Telemedicine and Teletherapy

Teletherapy, Columbia Treatment Center (CTC)

As COVID-19 spreads, telemedicine and teletherapy has emerged as a dominant technology all over the world. Also called virtual care, eHealth, online therapy, and audio-conferencing, our clinicians have been providing these services to select clients for several years. We call our teletherapy services Maven Online, coming from the Hebrew name of one who understands, and we are committed to increasing its potential.

Individual Sessions and Virtual Groups

In recent weeks, we are further embracing this technique with all of our current and new clients, expanding it to include not only individual sessions, but groups as well. Last week alone our counselors held virtual groups with a combined total of 87 clients in attendance, and many clients are grateful to continue their therapy with the group members they have spent so much time getting to know.

No one knows what the future holds, but we can say with certainty that Maven Online is here to stay.
