Online Therapy for Adults
Do You Wish You Had The Time And Energy For Therapy?
Have you been feeling down lately but you don’t know where to turn? Do you want to see a therapist, but you feel like you don’t have time to? Maybe you’re so busy with work that going to a counselor’s office would be an inconvenience. Or perhaps you have children and you don’t feel like stressing over childcare options while you’re in therapy. It may be difficult arranging for transportation, as you don’t have the time or money for it.
Even so, your emotional struggles probably won’t disappear on their own. Without anyone to help you, you may be feeling anxious, depressed and worried that your symptoms aren’t getting better. Whether you’re dealing with ADD/ADHD, anxiety, autism or a physical disability, today’s world makes it hard to overcome your challenges without help. The hustle and bustle of modern society and the inability to maintain a work-life balance make it hard to find time and space for self-care.
Thankfully, online therapy for adults breaks down the barriers of inconvenience that prevent you from getting help. By working with me from the comfort of your home—or wherever it is you feel most at ease—you can learn to adapt to your struggles and find creative ways to thrive and succeed.
Online Counseling Is The Safest, Most Practical Self-Care Option Today
Imagine that you’ve made the decision to try online therapy and you’re getting the support you need. You have time and space for self-care in your life and you’re feeling balanced, grounded and at ease. Your relationships have improved dramatically and you’ve been able to focus in work and school. You can finally exhale—your life isn’t perfect, but you have new coping skills for weathering your storms and you are able to find peace in the midst of them.
If you’re feeling down, I encourage you to remember that the described above can be yours. Millions of people have found online counseling helpful, and I believe that you will, too. It ensures that you don’t have to worry about any mobility and accessibility issues you may face.
What’s more, our world has become increasingly digital and more and more people are working from home. This has its benefits, but it has also spawned a new pandemic—loneliness. It’s important to stay safe, but it’s equally vital to take care of your social and relational needs. By pursuing virtual counseling, you can meet those needs without having to worry about your safety and well-being.
My Approach To Online Counseling For Adults Is Gentle, Convenient, And Deeply Compassionate
One of the toughest parts about in-person counseling is finding time to consistently meet. Oftentimes, clients have to cancel sessions at the last minute, leading to late fees and missed opportunities for growth. With online therapy, it’s easier to find consistency and avoid these costs. You can ensure that your emotional needs are regularly taken care of and you have time in your busy day to de-stress and relax.
Additionally, online therapy allows you to have greater privacy; since no one else has to see you go to counseling. And the platform I use for video-conferencing is 100-percent HIPAA-compliant, meaning that you don’t have to worry about online breaches of privacy. It’s easy to manage and very similar to Face Time and Zoom. It’s important to know that you can engage in therapy on your phone, laptop or tablet.
On your end, I encourage you to find a quiet, private space where you can talk with me without having to worry about distractions or anyone listening in. You can participate in virtual therapy wherever you’d like—in your home, your car or wherever you feel most comfortable.
My approach to the healing process is gentle, personal and deeply compassionate. The essence of therapy is a relationship and that’s as true of online counseling as it is of in-person treatment. If you’re dealing with ADD/ADHD, anxiety, autism or physical disability, I believe that counseling can help you. My hope is that, by working together, you will learn new coping skills for everyday problems and live abundantly and joyfully in the years to come.
YOU MAY HAVE SOME QUESTIONS ABOUT ONLINE COUNSELING…
Can Online Therapy Really Work For Me?
I’ve been doing online therapy for a while now and I’ve found it to be just as effective as in-person counseling. It allows for more privacy and more ease of access and you still get the same face-to-face relationship you would in normal sessions. And if you have any technological concerns, we can work together to navigate those issues from the start. It’s okay if you’re not savvy with technology—online therapy is easily workable and requires very little tech-knowledge on your end.
Is Online Therapy For Adults Really Private?
Yes, sessions are completely private on my end. I use a HIPAA-compliant video-chat platform, so there is no risk of anyone intercepting information from our sessions. What’s more, I promise that I will hold sacred what you tell me, ensuring that no one else in your life knows about the things we talk about.
Does Insurance Pay For Online Counseling?
Most insurance plans allow for online therapy services in the wake of COVID-19. During the initial phone consultation with me, I will make sure your insurance plan covers treatment. If it doesn’t, I will gladly direct you to other resources.
