Distance or Online
Although, we are therapists practicing out of San Diego, we are able to provide counseling services to individuals, couples, and families throughout California and Oregon.
We believe that in order for therapy to be effective one must feel comfortable enough to share their true thoughts, emotions, and experiences. Online counseling caters to creating a higher level of comfort in that you, the client, are able to choose where you feel most at ease to have your session, be it your home, car, office, or anywhere else. Online counseling is also a wonderful resource for individuals that are too busy to come to an office for sessions or live in an area that does not offer the psychotherapy you wish to engage in.
Many clients thinking about online counseling ask us the same two questions:
What is it going to be like?
Is it effective?
When looking at the process of online counseling think of FaceTime or Skype, in that it can be just as easy as these platforms. The platform we use are HIPPA compliant so that you can know that your personal information and what is being discussed will remain confidential. After consent forms have been completed we will send you a link that you will be able to click, on any smart phone, tablet, or computer with a camera and microphone and we will be ready to start sessions. The session itself will feel just like an in person session.
The effectiveness of online counseling has been reviewed though many studies and it has been found to be just as effective as traditional face to face counseling (please see FAQ page for reference). We believe that the true effectiveness of counseling is ones openness, commitment, and desire to change.
So please join us in your most comfortable space and on your schedule to start taking control of your life by making positive changes and reaching your goals.
