I'm not sure what you mean by "side by side" here, but I do want to point out that outcome studies are regularly conducted comparing the effectiveness of therapy and medication. If this is the case, what makes an outcome study comparing the effectiveness of face-to-face and online therapy/counseling so inconceivable?

Even when a client shows a preference for a particular kind of therapy, don't we have an obligation to at least tell them which of the available options is proven to provide the best outcomes?
