You’ve likely already tried the DIY method of talking with friends and family, listening to podcasts, and reading all the articles and books. Yet, it still feels like there’s something missing.
While some therapists take a more passive approach of nodding along with you in session, I provide concrete direction and remind you of the goals that brought you to counseling. I will frequently check in with you about our progress, and what is and isn’t working in our sessions together.
What is online therapy and how does it work?
Online therapy allows me to provide quality individual mental health services to you via HIPAA secure video conferencing. We can see each other using a computer, smartphone, or any other device that connects to the internet. There is no confusing software to download, all you need is a confidential space, internet, and headphones and we’re ready to get to work.
When I first transitioned to online therapy, I was concerned it would prevent me from forming a connection with my clients. I have found this is not an issue as I have helped many clients using online therapy from the convenience of their offices or homes. Many clients actually feel more at ease as they are now able to meet with me and have their pets, favorite blanket, or cup of tea handy.
Research has found that online therapy is as effective as in person therapy for depression and anxiety. It also eliminates additional issues such as:
- Trying to leave the office when you’re just too busy
- Finding childcare
- Confidentiality, seeing your old coworker in the waiting room
- Time spent driving in Houston traffic (avoid 5pm at all costs am I right?)
- Having to put on pants (mostly joking) but seeing a therapist from home is that much more comfortable
I’m able to work with anyone who resides in Texas, so even if you’re not in Houston, we can still work together. To learn more and get started with virtual therapy, please schedule a free consultation call today.
I am now offering in-person therapy services on a limited basis. We will still complete your intake documents through my HIPPA secure portal so there is no confusing paper work to print out, just bring yourself to our initial appointment and we can go from there. Please contact me for additional details if you’re ready to get started with in-person therapy in Houston, TX.
