What are the benefits of participating in online therapy sessions?

  • Convenience of appointments.  No more scrambling to get to your therapist's office or needing to  factor in the cost of gas. Many clients find it helpful that they can easily schedule a virtual session into their existing workday, so as to not take time away from their family or add to the chaotic evening routines most of us already experience.

  •  It is private.  There does not exist the possibility of running into someone you know in the waiting room.

  • Comfort.  You can log on from anywhere in the state of Connecticut and/or from the comfort of your own home.  This is especially beneficial if you live in a rural area and it is difficult to get into traditional, in-person therapy. This allows most clients to feel more comfortable opening up, as you can be in your personal "safe space", cuddled up with your favorite pet and do not need to worry about being late getting to an office. Important to note that clients should log on in a place where no one can eavesdrop or overhear the sensitive content of an online session.

  • Reduced stigma.  Oftentimes clients may worry about the stigma of mental health and attending therapy in a more traditional office setting.

  • Getting to the heart of things.  Clients who attend online therapy may feel a greater sense of anonymity and thus may feel more motivated to get the heart of the challenge more readily than in traditional therapy.  This may result in faster healing for the client and a more expedited form of therapy.

  • Consistency.  If a client is sick or if there is inclement weather, there is no need to cancel as is with traditional, in-person therapy.

  • Accessibility.  Online therapy allows many clients to overcome barriers that may have otherwise prevented them from seeking therapy.

What are some of the disadvantages, concerns or disclaimers about online therapy?

  • It is important to note that online therapy may not be a good fit for some clients.  With this in mind, I offer a free consultation to determine if online therapy may be a good fit for you. 

  • Since I offer online therapy for the whole state of Connecticut and New York, online therapy can place the therapist and client at a distance geographically, so it is oftentimes difficult to respond quickly and effectively when a crisis happens. For example, if a client is experiencing suicidal thoughts and/or has suffered a personal tragedy, it can be difficult or even impossible for the therapist to provide direct or even immediate assistance.

  • Online therapy is not appropriate for clients with severe psychiatric conditions who require more close and direct treatment, nor is it appropriate for individuals that are actively suicidal or homicidal.

  • Online therapy may not be a good fit for you if you are not comfortable with technology.  To ease this discomfort, I offer a free consultation online through a secure and confidential platform to allow you to test the waters and determine if online therapy will be a good fit for you.

  • Connectivity and reliability of your online service provider.  Clients will need to ensure they have the proper internet speed in order to reliably connect to an online session.  With this, if you can stream a Netflix movie, you should be good to go; however, your therapist will review a plan should a technology issue arise.

  • Lack of body language and the possibility for miscommunication.  While this is a valid concern, it may be easily remedied with consistent, open, and honest communication with me, as your therapist and may require clarifying when needed.
