Therapy Tools grants doxy.me providers access to a comprehensive library of therapeutic exercises, enriching both in-person and telehealth sessions with clients. This feature enables providers to actively engage in skill-building exercises alongside their clients, fostering collaboration and understanding before assigning them as independent activities. Additionally, providers have the flexibility to send any exercise or activity as an automatic reminder, encouraging clients to complete them between sessions. By leveraging Therapy Tools, providers can enhance the therapeutic journey, promote skill development, and reinforce progress even outside the session environment.

This article covers the available exercises, practicing them with clients, scheduling automatic reminders, and reviewing completed exercise results.
