Is Online Therapy (Telehealth) Right For me?

Many clients find that online therapy is a preferred method of treatment for their needs. It is an exciting technological era, where therapists are happy to offer quality and privacy-secure treatment options in the comfort of the client’s own home!

  • Online therapy is useful for clients who struggle to leave the home (chronic health issues, rural location, new baby at home, social anxiety, unsafe driving conditions, etc).

  • Online therapy is useful for clients who may want to have family members or partners join sessions in a convenient way.

  • Online therapy allows clients to experience a level of comfort that they may not be able to find in the traditional office setting.
