We’ve only ever done teletherapy, so I can’t give a perspective on traditional in-person therapy. In-person was what we wanted, as it’s a lot easier for us to feel comfortable around a person if we can “feel” their energy, and we have a lot of trouble doing that online. But, in the end, teletherapy has the immeasurable benefit of us seeing a therapist who has experience with DID. She takes our memories seriously, even when we think we are crazy, and tells us that we aren’t imaginary, even when we try to insist that we are.
I think the biggest benefit to teletherapy is that it gives you a bigger pool of therapists to choose from. And that, from my own experience and from what I have heard other systems say, matters with dissociative disorders.
