Virtual Counseling Appointments
I meet with clients virtually using the HIPAA compliant platform Telehealth by SimplePractice. Prior to the session, I will email you a link to the session, and at the time of the session, you will simply click on the link to log on and begin our therapy session. You can connect using your phone or PC.
Meeting with a therapist virtually has several benefits compared to meeting in person. Here are some of the most significant benefits:
- Convenience: Virtual therapy allows individuals to attend therapy sessions from anywhere with a reliable internet connection. This can be especially helpful for people who live in rural areas, have mobility limitations, or have a busy schedule.
- Accessibility: Virtual therapy eliminates geographic barriers, making it easier for people to access mental health services from anywhere in the world. This can be especially beneficial for people who live in areas where mental health services are limited or who prefer to work with a therapist who specializes in a particular area.
- Comfort: Some people feel more comfortable opening up to their therapist in a virtual setting than in person. This can be due to a variety of factors, such as feeling more in control of the session, feeling less intimidated by the therapist’s physical presence, or feeling more relaxed in their own environment.
- Reduced Stigma: Virtual therapy can help reduce the stigma associated with seeking mental health services. For example, some people may be hesitant to seek therapy in person because they fear being seen by others or because they worry that seeking mental health services may be perceived as a sign of weakness.
- Cost-Effective: Virtual therapy can be more cost-effective than in-person therapy, as it eliminates the need for travel time and transportation costs.
Overall, virtual therapy can be an effective and convenient way for people to access mental health services.
However, if you find yourself hesitant to meet virtually, I am happy to set up a complimentary 15 minute virtual “meet and greet” call to introduce you to me, the platform, and the process.
My goal is always to provide the best possible therapeutic experience! Call today to schedule a meet and greet: 904-592-6800.
