Psychotherapy examines how people think, feel, and behave. It is a collaborative process between the therapist and the client We work together to bring awareness to your psychological experience and attend to the dynamic that has been developed. The insight then allows you to choose how to experience life in a way that is meaningful and fulfilling to you.
There are a number of different techniques and theories in therapy that work to support this change. One modality of psychotherapy I frequently utilize is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), the most researched-supported form of psychotherapy for various concerns. I also incorporate mindfulness, hypnosis, emotion-focused, and other psychotherapy interventions into my sessions that support with overcoming barriers to change.
Online psychotherapy is a safe and confidential method of providing therapy that can be done from the comfort of your home. With online therapy, we can connect over video and facilitate the same experience that in-person therapy provides. The experience with telehealth offered an opportunity to utilize resources to support your treatment in a way that in-person may not.
Online therapy can help people who live in rural communities or far away from mental health professionals. It can also help people who are hesitant to see a mental health professional in person, such as people dealing with shame or stigma. Online therapy is also beneficial for people who cannot take the time to visit a therapist in person. The online modality is flexible and faster.
Additional benefits of telehealth are found in the optimization of the platform. As technological advances are made in our world today, we can do more via our devices. The treatment planning, worksheets, and other resources are easier to access and tailored to your specific needs.
The length of therapy varies depending on the person’s needs and goals. It is not uncommon for people to undergo therapy for a year or more. However, some people may only need a few sessions. I offer a free consultation to discuss your needs and determine how many sessions will be necessary.
Therapy can be helpful for anyone, not just people with major/clinical problems. You don’t have to have a diagnosed mental health condition to see a therapist. Many people go to therapy to deal with stress, anxiety, or relationship problems.
Some people seek therapy because they may struggle with self-esteem, family relationships, feelings of worthlessness, or loneliness.
In many cases, psychotherapy is about prioritizing yourself. Many clients who engage in therapy seek to develop a deeper understanding of their experiences and innate responses. As such, this insight allows for a more fulfilling life experience.
There are many types of therapy, but some of the most common are:
The consultation is a 15-minute session, during which we will get to know each other. I will ask questions about your life, goals, and personal history. You may also have questions for me so that we can address them as well. You may discuss the reasons for coming to therapy, your hopes to get out of it, and what kind of treatment feels right.
Additionally, a consultation session offers an opportunity to get the feel of the telehealth environment. Resolve unforeseeable difficulties relating to connecting to your video session. Resolving these technical barriers can provide a better experience in your future sessions.
If you have found that my style of therapy has not been a good fit for you, please feel free to discuss that with me. It is not only appropriate but it is also encouraged to advocate for your treatment. I will answer any questions you may have and provide referral options for you to review.
I can understand the difficulty of having this conversation, and so you may notice me periodically checking in with you during your treatment.
Yes! My services are covered by insurance providers. I am credentialed with most major insurance networks. I am in-network with these major providers insurance companies:
If I am not in-network with your insurance provider, you may still be able to receive coverage for out-of-network services. Insurance companies will often cover out-of-network psychotherapy services, but it is important to check with your insurance company first. For these instances, I will provide you with a superbill at the end of each month which you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
