I suppose every client is the "ideal" in the sense that each person brings a unique story worthy of dignity, grace, and respect. By the time a person walks into my office, he/she is usually exhausted, confused, empty, and/or feeling hopeless and alone. Not all, but many of the folks I see want to be known, understood, and accepted. Most believe the lie that "if people really knew me, what I think about, what I've done, or what's been done to me, they would not love me, accept me or want me their lives." I enjoy helping people experience the freedom grace can give and the hope it has to offer.

Welcome! I am glad you are here. My name is Mariah Vlach (pronounced Vlock) and I assist people to be the catalyst for change and healing in their lives. Dysfunctional life experiences compromise the energetic system of the mind-body-spirit connection. These experiences can compartmentalize in the psyche and physical body, creating depression, shame, fear, anxiety, and suffering. Together, we will uncover your personal mythology to reveal a deeper understanding of your life experiences, the reasons behind why you feel stuck, and ignite your natural healing capacity to bring ease and reduce suffering.

I teach people how to build a strong sense of Self and use that powerful foundation to create the life they desire. To make it in this world, you may have invested in “being normal” or just "surviving" and, in that process, forgotten who you truly are. Many people who identify as highly sensitive, or neurodiverse find themselves in this situation, as well as people who have experienced trauma or significant change. Reconnecting with your authentic self allows you to: experience increased success & abundance, cultivate closer relationships, undam your creativity, and build resilience.

You're someone who does well with a balanced blend of nurturing and challenge. You think growth is possible and awesome and, yes, uncomfortable, but well worth it. Whether you're good at asking for help or not, you know you need it at this moment to get where you're headed. Your dreams are a little scary to say out loud (a good sign!).

Online Therapists

Is online therapy as effective as in-person?

Numerous studies suggest that online therapy can be as effective as in-person therapy. However, further research is needed to determine if online therapy provides the same benefits across all client populations. Individuals with severe mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, or those who may benefit from in-person check-ins, like those with eating disorders, may not experience the same level of benefit from online therapy. Nonetheless, the success of online therapy, much like in-person therapy, often hinges on the quality of the therapeutic relationship between the therapist and the client rather than the specific modality of therapy used.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of therapy conducted online?

One of the main advantages of online therapy is its convenience for both clients and therapists. It also allows clients who require specialized therapy to access a wider range of professionals than they could with only in-person sessions. Additionally, online therapy may be a more affordable option in some cases and often offers the same insurance benefits as in-person therapy. However, online therapy may not be suitable for everyone, especially those who value face-to-face interaction with a therapist. Therapists may find it more challenging to assess clients accurately in an online setting due to reduced nonverbal cues on camera. There is also the increased risk that disruptions caused by external factors, such as technology malfunctions, can hinder the therapy session. For these reasons, many therapists offer a "hybrid" therapeutic approach, alternating between seeing clients in-person and online.

Is online therapy suitable for children and adolescents?

Just like with adults, the accessibility and convenience of online therapy can greatly benefit children and adolescents. In fact, children and adolescents may be more accustomed to navigating online platforms than older adults, making online sessions feel more natural for them. Teens might also be interested in using additional online tools, such as therapist-recommended apps, as an adjunct to online therapy sessions. Apps for developing CBT skills, practicing mindfulness exercises, or tracking thoughts and moods can be helpful for teens receiving therapy. However, it's important to note that not all therapeutic modalities are well-suited to online therapy, especially those used with younger children. For example, play therapy, which helps younger children express their emotions, often requires in-person sessions to be fully effective.

Can I receive prescriptions and medication management with online therapy?

The ability for psychiatrists to prescribe medications through online therapy varies based on the medication and the states where the medical professional and client are located. While many prescribing regulations were relaxed during the COVID-19 pandemic, some states still enforce rules, especially concerning controlled substances, which may mandate an in-person visit before prescribing. Generally, however, medical professionals can prescribe non-controlled substances through online therapy sessions just as they do during in-person sessions.
