All you need to do is decide today is your day to start feeling better. That takes courage and self-love, and that is enough! Clients who work with me gain the skills needed to have compassion and insight into their moods, and make choices that support both their bodies and minds. While I routinely use medications to treat anxiety, depression and other mental health conditions, I personalize the use of medications to you as an individual, and ALWAYS consider the impacts that other medical treatments, medications and illnesses may be contributing to one's mental suffering. I prioritize client safety above all else!

Teletherapy Psychiatrists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Sharon, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Sharon listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
