Online therapy is usually as effective as in person therapy.
Have you considered engaging in online therapy but you don’t know how it works?
Does your job take you to different locations, making in person therapy difficult?
Does your work schedule not allow for regular, in person sessions?
Do you worry that someone you know might see you enter or exit from a therapist’s office?
Are you used to spending much of your time online?
Do you just like the idea of doing therapy from the comfort of your own safe place, perhaps with your pets in the room, in your bedroom on your bed or in your home office in your own comfortable chair?
Are you open to trying a growing and newly popular way to engage in therapy?
If any of these are true for you, then you would likely be a good candidate for online therapy.
Other Advantages of Online Therapy
I am able to fit you into my schedule as we both have openings, if needed, and at times I can vary the length of the sessions, which is usually not the case with in-person sessions.
As well, I am able to provide the same kinds of therapy (in addition to talk therapy) that I offer in person, such as Somatic Experiencing, EMDR, hypnotherapy, and couples therapy.
Also, you can be both an in-person and an online client. I am able to schedule you for therapy office sessions when you are able to see me in-person, and online sessions when you are not.
Online therapy technology
The video technology available these days is amazingly clear and very secure. The same is true for payments for therapy over the internet through Paypal. But you always have the option of sending me a check.
Online therapy is offered via the phone, and through Facetime, Skype, and Zoom. However, in order to ensure that the therapy is encrypted and safe from being hacked, I use an online video platform called doxy that guarantees the therapy remains private and safe. I just send you the link, you click on it, and voila–we can do video sessions securely.
Trying out Online Therapy
You are very welcome to try out an online therapy session to see if it is something you would want to continue with. But please understand that I still do need to charge you.
The fees are the same as for in-person sessions: $150 for 50 minute individuals and $160 for 60 minute couples sessions. (Yes, doxy works quite well for couples therapy. You are able to see all three of us.)
