"My approach Integrative Psychotherapy draws primarily from Interpersonal Psychotherapy and Insight Meditation. It is my experience that people make changes in their lives in therapy when they feel appropriately supported and understood. This combined with awareness developed through mindfulness practices enables people to take the insights cultivated in therapy sessions and implement them in their lives. I see therapy as an opportunity to explore how our thoughts and perceptions about our life situations, determine the quality of how we experience our lives. Our self-perceptions developed throughout our lives, are often our greatest impediment to changing our lives."

I work with adults who, despite their outward success, struggle with anxiety, low self-esteem, guilt/shame, and unsatisfying relationships. Often times, there's a disconnect between how others perceive you and the way you feel about yourself. Your struggles with loneliness, sadness, and insecurity are things you try to deal with privately so as not to burden anyone but this perpetuates your feelings of isolation. The current Covid situation is certainly not helping matters. I see you and I can help. "

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 Durham, 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 Durham 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?
Therapists in Durham are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Durham

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