As an outsider, it would appear that you have it all figured out. You performed well in school, scored an awesome job, and even nabbed an amazing partner. You've got it all! But then why do you feel like crap all the time? It's like your body is in a constant state of panic while your brain is in perpetual crisis mode. "What's wrong with me?!" you wonder. People tell you that you're fine, but you can't shake this feeling that at any moment, this life that you've worked so hard for is about to come crashing down. You keep a smile plastered on your face but inside you're silently screaming. You can't keep this up for much longer.

How rapidly our world has changed. Working from home, constant interruptions, too many meetings by video, discipline, feeling unqualified for distance learning – we’re unprepared for this state of constant chaos. So many meals, demands, screen time, and lack of motivation leave no time for yourself. Irritable, edgy and exhausted, your patience is long gone. Your relationship suffers. Spinning thoughts about health, finances, family, loss of connection immobilize you. You’re running on empty. Individuals and couples - Look no further for someone who “gets” you. I can understand and support you. You don’t have to feel alone anymore.

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
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 20817, 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 20817 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.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 20817 are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in 20817. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 20817

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 20817 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 20817 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 20817 or family therapy in 20817.
