It can be difficult, for varying reasons, to make it into the office for an appointment. Due to the busy schedules of people and their families today, it has become essential to find alternative ways to make therapy accessible and convenient to access.
I have to say I was a little skeptical about offering online therapy when I first heard about it. I was scared that I wouldn't be able to connect with my clients online in the same manner I’m able to when I meet them face to face in my office. After being assured by other colleagues who had ventured into the world of online therapy, I decided to take the leap into offering therapy online and I'm glad I did.
I've learned, not only have I been able to connect with my clients online as well as I do with the clients who come to my office, but I have found a multitude of ways that my clients have benefited from providing them with my services online, such as being able to do sessions when their schedules are busy, when they don’t have access to a transportation, or when they are apprehensive to travel through bad weather. For others, the convenience of being able to do sessions in the comfort of their own home has made the prospect of doing therapy less anxiety inducing. Whatever the reason, online therapy allows me to provide quality care and support to those who need it anywhere in the state of Florida. This has allowed me to provide my services to those who may be in areas where they do not have access to the mental health care they need or do not have access to quality specialists in eating disorders, anxiety, or OCD.
