Study Finds Less Fall Off Rates for Phone Therapy Clients With Depression

A San Marcos based company, launches a new website that instantly connects callers to live therapists and professional counselors. Phone therapy and para-professional counseling is fast becoming a valuable service to individuals who may not have the will or the time to make face to face appointments. Last fall, 2008, researchers from Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine conducted a nationwide "snapshot" of telephone-administered therapy and found that face to face therapy sessions were more likely to fall off by 50%, versus only a 7.6% decline found with telephone therapy. Depressed people tend to lose motivation so keeping an appointment is much more difficult than picking up the phone.

"Many individuals are being tasked with so many things during the day that they may not have the time to get the help they need. Therapy by phone is also a great way to reach out to the physically disabled, the elderly and other individuals who may have difficulty making regular face to face visits," said Michael Harlow, President of    

Economic challenges can also motivate callers to use phone therapy even if traditional therapy is covered by insurance. When you factor in time off from work, travel, parking and other variables, the expenses can add up quickly. The professionals at are, on average, about half the hourly rate of face to face therapy visits. The caller can also choose from several hundred degreed, professional and para-professional counselors ranging from licensed clinical social workers to board certified physicians and other business experts.
