"I remember thinking, "this can't be my life." I was depressed, disconnected from my wife, and struggling with compulsive behaviors that were out of control. Then I reached out for support. Stop trying to do it alone. The right support from a specialized therapist will help you find the power you have to break the cycle. As a clinician who started out years ago as a client, I know the fear of making that first call. I also know the relief of hearing that my therapist understood what I was going through, and knew the way out."

"Psychotherapy is a deeply personal experience that can relieve anxiety and depression and foster authentic connection and meaning in our lives. After 15 years as a psychologist and author, I continue to work daily with clients to uncover early dynamics that still seem to interfere with securing the kind of relationships and positive feelings about ourselves that we all strive for. I often find myself in the role of gently reminding clients about the parts of themselves that have temporarily gone underground and are vital to their creativity and well-being."

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 San Diego, this list of Teletherapyists 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 San Diego 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.

Please discuss with the professional the app you'd like to use e.g. Zoom, Skype, FaceTime, Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp. Professionals sometimes prefer HIPAA tailored apps such as Zoom, VSee or Doxy.me.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
