TeleTherapy

Teletherapy, also known as tele-mental health, distance, online, and virtual counseling, is the delivery of mental health services where you (the client) and the therapist are physically located in two separate locations using technology to communicate with each other.

Your teletherapy appointments can take place from anywhere on any device. Experience simple and stress-free video appointments. I send you automatic reminders and the link for our virtual sessions. Clients just click a link to start— no logins, no passwords, no hassle.

Current trends suggest that teletherapy is rising and will be routine in a few short years. Did you know that mental health conditions are more common than cancer, diabetes, or heart disease? The stats are worth repeating. Nearly 1 in 5 American adults – about 43 million – face a mental illness each year.


72% of patients ages 18 to 44 and
43% of patients 45 and older
would opt for a virtual mental health visit
over an in-office appointment.

Common Reasons for TeleTherapy:

  • The commute can be inconvenient or impossible.
  • Expanding the possibility to find a therapist who has a particular expertise.
  • You don’t have to take time off work for a therapy appointment.
  • People worry about the stigma of in-office therapy.
  • Clients are concerned they will see someone they know enter or leave a therapist’s office.
  • Clients are more comfortable and open while at home.
  • Clients don’t have to cancel if they get sick.
  • It is a convenient option for people with disabilities.
  • People in an abusive relationship receive therapy without their partner knowing.

People who suffer from severe social anxieties, major depressive disorder, and PTSD may find telehealth more accessible than traditional face-to-face counseling. You will receive online therapy sessions that includes evidence-based techniques and abides by the American Counseling Association code of ethics. Your video appointments are always protected with high level encryption and security. I always use the strictest privacy measures and encryption for all communications with you.
