Online Therapy

Get professional support from the convenience of your home

One of the perks of the modern world.

We all go through periods of struggle, but we don't need to do it alone. The help of a trained therapist can help you make needed changes come smoother and faster.

Thanks to online video telehealth, you can receive high-quality therapy from the convenience of your home...no getting ready to go out, no driving to an office, no parking. Just sit or lay down in your comfy place at home, click a button and boom...you're in therapy.

And afterwards, after doing the work, there's nowhere to go...you're already home. You can relax, or immediately get to work on things that are on your mind from the session.

Thanks to Covid, I came to realize that both myself and many of my clients prefer online therapy, and so now I've shifted my practice so that, with few exceptions, all sessions are exclusively online.

Is online therapy secure?

As secure as anything online can be, yes. I only use HIPAA-compliant video-conferencing software, not standard Zoom. Two years of the Covid pandemic created a major leap forward for online video-conferencing for healthcare professionals, so that now we have many secure options to use with clients.

I use the video-conferencing platform of my online therapy practice management software, called Simple Practice. As a backup, I use Doxy.me, which many doctors and healthcare people also use due to its ease of use and internet-security.

Self-care before and after sessions, which we therapists frequently emphasize as part of the process of healing, is now easier than ever.

Another benefit of online therapy is that - because your therapist can live hundreds of miles away from you since you now longer need to physically travel to them - it greatly expands the pool of therapists to choose from.

Can online therapy go as "deep"?

Definitely.

Both the deep trauma-healing work of EMDR and the complex relational work of couples therapy is doable over online therapy. It is arguably more effective because your home can feel like such a safe place from which to go to difficult places in your psyche.

Sometimes therapy sessions leave you quite emotionally raw or stirred-up, and it's really nice that you don't have to get in a car and drive home...you're already there.

There are indeed some things that are different about online therapy, however, nearly those differences are easily addressed with simple adjustments to make sure you feel safe and supported.

Give it a try?

It might be that you're skeptical that therapy can work online, and I get it if what you are really wanting is an in-person meet-up. If that's the case, then you should listen to that and find a local therapist.

However, one of the benefits of online therapy is that you have a much broader pool of therapists to choose from...not just the ones that happen to be in your local town or city.

If you feel called to work with me as a therapist, then I suggest you give it a try. Like me and so many clients, as happened for us during Covid, you might just be surprised. You might just also, like me, come to prefer it.

Regardless, of all the choices you have for therapists, I'm honored that you're considering me. If you think we'd be a good match, reach out and let's chat. I look forward to meeting you!
