When the world feels like a storm, and you don’t have an umbrella, or raincoat, or even shelter. The anxiety or trauma is so intense, and the scars you carry are real. Yes, you feel the chaos, and you can’t see the solution within you. Each day requires all of your strength, and you’re still in “survival mode”- every struggle is a chapter, not the conclusion. You don’t want this to define you, but there are dark nights, despite the stars still shining. And though the path may seem daunting, you want to reach the end. You are seeking some rest, some peace, and (at the very least) a lifeline in your sea of emotions.

Looking for help is difficult; especially, when it comes to something so personal to us, like our mental health. My first goal is to offer a safe, warm, and comfortable environment so that individuals, couples, and families can gain relief and truly thrive intrapersonally and with others. I specialize in trauma, addictions (both chemical and behavioral), anxiety disorders, and complex grief. Before joining private practice, I worked across multiple environments including inpatient hospitals, rehab facilities, and outpatient settings. I also spent a bulk of my training providing care to military and first responders.

Clients who come with a specific need (depression, anxiety, grief, relationship problems), and a willingness to change, will find therapy most efficient and effective. Many people come with a general sense of what is wrong, but seek therapy to help identify the meaning and source of feelings, thoughts, and behaviors that are disturbing. Therapeutic goals can be as simple as diagnosing the concern and developing life strategies to manage symptoms. Goals can be as complicated as working through a history of multiple diagnosis offered by multiple providers and identifying what will work best for this client, then offering treatment.

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.
