Text therapy is just what it sounds like, yup, you text your thoughts and a therapist responds via text. The question is: is that as therapeutic as in office therapy? Is text therapy going to eventually push in office therapy out? Although I believe text therapy has a therapeutic value in certain circumstances, it absolutely is not therapy nor counseling in the true sense. Nor do I feel text therapy should be instead of in office therapy.
