In Person or Telehealth?

I noticed in the last two years that after the initial video session, clients reveal (in verbal and nonverbal ways) that their situation requires more engagement on my part than originally anticipated. This reveals that the two-way non-verbal exchange of information between me and my client may not be as effective on video, and clients request to switch to in person (some say, “at least once”) because they feel the need to be in the same room with me. However, the opposite can also be true, whereby after a consistent series of in person sessions, the client feels comfortable in continuing via video or interspersing (and I do too, at that point.) This may mean that after the relationship is firmly established, switching to video or interspersing video and in-person do not break the bond of trust between therapist and client.
