Online Therapy

My online clients who have also seen me for in-person sessions have reported that online therapy has been just as effective as in-person sessions. Some have felt that it is even more comfortable and effective than being in the office.

I also provide therapy for a number of clients who only engage in online therapy with me..

I use many therapeutic techniques that work just as well over the internet as they do in person. These include Somatic Experiencing (SE), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), hypnotherapy, and talk therapy. I include the body or "soma" in the treatment that I offer, knowing well that our body's wisdom is profound. It helps us resolve our emotional wounds and traumas.

 

Questions To Ask Yourself Before Engaging in Online Therapy

Online treatment is usually as effective as in-person therapy. It may be ideal for you if any of the following questions are true for you:

Do you have a busy schedule that makes it hard to take the time to get to and from a therapist's office?

Does your job involve traveling that makes it hard to come to regular in-person therapy sessions?

Are you someone who is potentially as comfortable talking to a therapist from a private room or location as you are being at the therapist's office?

Does it appeal to you to do therapy from your home, office, or another private location more than being at a therapist's office?

Are you used to spending much of your time on Facetime or Skpe so that using it for online therapy would feel comfortable?

Do you suffer from agoraphobia or something else that makes it difficult or impossible for you to be at a therapist's office?

Advantages of Online Therapy

Convenience

You can save a lot of time being able to do therapy at home or in a safe, private location. In addition, you don't have to worry about someone you know seeing you walk into a therapist's office.

Comfort

Engaging in therapy in a familiar setting can help you be more at ease. You can be anywhere in the world and still receive the treatment you need.

Control

You get to decide what private setting works best for you, as well as how you want your private space to be set up. If you want to sit in your favorite chair or on the sofa with your pet, you are free to do so.

Online Therapy Groups and Classes

I am offering online groups and classes in 2019. These sessions can help you achieve a more positive outlook in life.

Self-Discovery: Transforming the Shadow Within

This group will begin in September 2019. The cost is $50 per session, with a sliding scale fee if needed.  The group explores the "shadow" elements in us that cause us to negatively judge others as well as aspects of ourselves. Deeply exploring our shadow aspects helps us to gain greater self-understanding, self -compassion, and self-acceptance. To learn more about this group, click here

Speaking Truth From the Heart

Online Therapy Technology

I provide online therapy sessions via phone and through FaceTime, Skype, or Zoom. To ensure that the therapy is encrypted and safe from being hacked, I use an online video platform called Doxy.me, which guarantees that your therapy session remains private and safe. I can send you the link, and we can do video sessions securely.

The couple, family and group therapy I offer is encrypted through the Zoom platform using “Regroup Connect.”

Trying Out Online Therapy

During an intial 20 minute phone or online consultation, we can discuss online therapy and youare welcome to try out an online platform with me. However, once we schedule you for a full online session,  I will have to charge you.

If you want to try online therapy sessions, do not hesitate to reach out to me. Ideal for individuals, couples, families, and groups, my online sessions are very convenient and effective.
