Licensed Clinical Social Worker - LCSW online private practice
Chances are, you treat yourself in ways that you would never treat another human being. You beat yourself up and hold grudges against yourself. I believe that this harsh treatment of self is behind many of the many of the painful emotional states that bring people to therapy, and leads to destructive and self-defeating behavior. It a gift to be able to help people make a shift to take a truly kinder stance towards themselves. When my clients begin to view themselves and their own struggles with compassion, something magical happens. They experience profound changes in many aspects of their lives.
Why online therapy? There’s a reason that it’s the direction the field is heading. Teletherapy is just easier to fit into our messy, busy lives.
• No wasting time sitting in traffic or in waiting rooms.
• If you’re feeling a little under the weather, no need to cancel appointments. It’s an ideal solution for people who are medically fragile or have access issues.
• It’s often more comfortable for people to open up when they are in the familiar comfort of their own homes. Some people feel less inhibited talking to a therapist about vulnerable issues online rather than face to face.
• Clients in their own homes have access to family members they may want to involve in treatment.
If you have concerns, call me and we can talk more about the simple process of online therapy. Even my clients who were initially hesitant are sold on it. Some common concerns are that therapy will be “impersonal” or somehow won’t be as effective as in-person therapy. My clients often express that they feel less inhibited talking about difficult issues online. Research shows that internet-based therapy is comparable to in-person therapy in satisfaction and effectiveness across diverse populations.
