Online Therapy sessions allow the convenience of in-person therapy sessions but in the comfort and privacy of your own home or other private location. Online therapy sessions are appropriate for clients who are struck with extremely busy lives and schedules, who may struggle with crippling anxiety or depression that make attending in person sessions difficult or for individuals who live remotely and are unable to schedule in person sessions receive the benefit of therapy at a time and in location that is most beneficial for them.
All online therapy sessions are held in “real-time” via a HIPPA compliant, secure platform. Once an appointment is confirmed via email or phone, you will be provided with the login information prior to your first session. Online therapy works perfectly on computers, smartphones or ipads that are equipped with a webcam.
Our clients enjoy the benefits online therapy sessions provide which includes the benefits of in person psychotherapy while also providing convenience, flexibility and accessibility. This medium of psychotherapy is very effective for both situationally-based interventions as well as for individuals who live in remote areas, have very busy lifestyles, need the convenience of meeting with a therapist outside of traditional work hours, or have significant anxiety that prevents them from participating in therapy on a consistent basis.
As noted in a recent article in verywellmind.com there are numerous benefits of online therapy, however this medium is not for everyone. For individuals who are in crisis, cannot guarantee the privacy of the clinical setting or who reside in a state outside of the treating clinicians state, there could be problems associated with this modality of psychotherapy. If you believe this option of therapy would be a good fit for you or if you have questions, please feel free to contact our office for more information or to schedule an appointment.
