Parenting can be tough. The emotional drama, the power struggles, the bedtime or homework resistance, the clinginess. You love your child, you love being a parent, but parenting is draining. It stirs self-doubt and tests your patience. It requires humility and selflessness. In the darkest moments, you wonder if your mistakes are damaging your child. In short, it really is the toughest job most people will ever do. For children and adolescents, each stage of life comes with different challenges. Even children can feel lost, alone, scared, and anxious during these transitions. You want to help them, but how?

Self esteem issues, body image problems, self worth are all originating from early problems that were never addressed. By going to the core of the problem, we can fix the problem that keeps on weighing on the individual and help them find a solution. Digging deep is somewhat needed to understand where it all came from and find a treatment plan to allow the person to let go of the negative and focus on the positive. It is crucial to keep an open communication module between client and therapist so we can both find the best alternative plan that will fit the client needs. I cover all groups, all ethnicity, all races in all my groups.

You may feel like you’re the only only one experiencing sexual challenges in your relationship, but dificulities like low desire, painful sex, or premature ejaculation are more common than you think. If you’ve been afraid to talk about your sexual challenges, you probably feel alone, overwhelmed, and unsure about what to do. If you’re in a relationship, you and your partner may have stopped even stop talking about sex, deepening the disconnection and feelings of lonliness and shame. Fortunately, there is a way out of this negative cycle, and you can create the sex life and relationship that you desire.

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 20878, 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 20878 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 20878 are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in 20878. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 20878

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 20878 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 20878 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 20878 or family therapy in 20878.
