Teletherapy across state lines is constitutionally protected speech

Like so many other therapists across the country throughout the pandemic, Elizabeth Brokamp used online video technology to speak with one of her clients about family struggles, COVID-19 related anxiety, d a commitment and an imminent job change.

Unfortunately, the latter meant that these conversations eventually turned from “advice” to “crimes”. Not because anything changed about the client or her needs, but because the job change meant the client crossed state lines — so Brokamp’s helpful conversations were suddenly banned by the government.
