Is online therapy effective? The short answer is... YES! * Now for the longer answer...
Participating in online therapy is the future of our field. The research on its efficacy is rapidly growing while consistently demonstrating that online therapy is just as effective as seeing your therapist in a clinical office. I provide online therapy and consulting services to children, parents, adults and families using a private, HIPAA compliant video session connection.
Some people are concerned that with online therapy they will not feel connected to their therapist or that it will be harder to have their child engage in therapy sessions. I shared similar concerns before I started providing online services in 2013. However, once I started offering therapy in this format I quickly discovered genuine, therapeutic relationships can be created this way. I find that children, adolescents and teens love participating in therapy sessions from the comfort of their home. I often tell new clients to imagine it as a private, secure and confidential FaceTime call. With my secure video connection I am also able to have you engage in therapeutic activities with me, share materials with you in the moment and have you interact with me as if we are in a clinical room while in the comfort of your own personal space and on your schedule.
I am confident you will get you the results you're after because online therapy is easy to fit into your life routines. This ease of online access is easier to commit to, allows for more flexible scheduling and enables patients to participate in therapy from the comfort of their home or location of choice anywhere in the world.
Please consider when starting any therapy, consistency is truly the key to the progress and positive behavior changes you are striving for whether we meet face-to-face online or in a clinical office.
