What is Online Counseling?
*Due to COVID-19, most counselors are providing support via online, but this section was created BEFORE this pandemic. I plan to continue offering only online counseling once we are back to “normal.”*
Online counseling or virtual counseling works in the same way as in-office counseling, but is done online, similar to a Skype or FaceTime conversation. Clients are able to have sessions from home, work, or any other convenient location (some clients see me from their cars!). I meet with clients using the HIPAA-compliant SecureVideo platform from my home office.
What are the advantages of Online Counseling?
Online therapy allows you to work with me from the comfort of home, or any private location of your choosing. For some, the screen provides an added layer of comfort that makes the sometimes challenging work of being vulnerable in therapy a little easier.
Online therapy also creates the unique opportunity for you to work with me specifically, even if we are not located in the same area. Should my areas of expertise and treatment approach meet your unique needs, online therapy allows us to work together without the constraints of location! I am licensed in California and I work with clients across the entire state.
Who benefits from Online Counseling?
Online therapy is a great option for clients that travel for work, for college students that go home during summertime and do not want a break in their sessions, and for anyone with a challenging or inconsistent day-to-day schedule. It is an excellent choice for clients seeking a therapist with a particular specialty that they are unable to find support for locally. It is also a great choice for stay at home/busy parents and tech-savvy teens! Also, its’ useful for people who live in more remote areas and are seeking quality clinical care.
Is Online Counseling for Everybody?
No. In my experience, I’ve noticed that for some clients with more complex symptoms or safety concerns, having a local therapist that is readily available is important to insure safety in case of crisis or the need for a higher level of care. Online therapy is also a challenge for clients that do not have access to a private, quiet space to be “in session” for the hour, or for those that do not have adequate internet connectivity.
Feel free to contact me to find out whether online counseling could be a viable option for you.
