The National Institutes of Health estimates that up to 19% of US adults had an anxiety disorder in the past year. Teletherapy can be an extremely effective option for people who live in remote areas, have mobility issues, or are hesitant to seek in-person mental health treatment.
Las Vegas-based Kayenta Therapy offers teletherapy services to individuals, couples, and families that promote trust, respect, and human dignity. Our licensed therapists are independent providers who believe that, for many people, teletherapy can be just as or more effective than traditional in-person sessions.
