About Online Therapy

Therapy helps you build the skills to face challenges, make wise decisions and discover your birthright to live a full and satisfying life.

Online Therapy, also know as e-therapy, distance therapy, and video therapy, is a fairly new  phenomenon. Yet peer-review research has proven the efficacy of therapy via the internet to the point where it has become a viable alternative to in-person sessions.

Many people find video therapy as good or better than face to face. For instance, it takes less time out of your day (I.e., no drive time), and you can stay in the comfort of your own personal space.

Online Therapy may be a good choice for you whether because of traffic, transit costs, disability, medical conditions, scheduling, or time constraints.

Guidelines

Eliminate distractions

“Many of us do other things while we are talking in informal conversations, and if you don’t watch yourself, it is easy to let that habit slip into your online work,” says Dr. Davis.

Please put your phone, computer, iPad or any other device into “DO NOT DISTURB” mode prior to the session.

Make sure others around as well as people who might call you, know not to disturb you until our session is over.

Optimize Your Video Device Location

NYC-based psychotherapist Jasmin Terrany prefers video sessions over voice. “Over video, I can still feel and experience my clients as if we are in the same room,” she explains. “I can feel whsessionen [clients are hiding their emotions] or when something isn’t being said. This non-verbal communication is integral in the therapeutic process and can still be completely present in a virtual video conference . “

We will need to see each other clearly to experience as realistic an in-person encounter as possible.

I have found that it’s best if your device is far enough away so that your hands are free, but not so far that you can’t can’t see me clearly.
