Online Therapy

Virtual sessions are easier than ever.

When your child needs support, they need it now.

Called a bunch of therapists… only one picked up.

They don’t see kids, and they don’t know anyone else who does.

Finally found someone after hours of searching online, but the first appointment is weeks out.

Have to convince my child to go, and then drive miles to get there. Not even sure the therapist is the right fit.

Then it’s back to the beginning if it doesn’t work out.

When your child can’t get through their day because of worry, sadness, discomfort in social situations, or other sources of anxiety, it’s important you intervene early before challenges mushroom out of their control.

Because children are not always telling you what’s wrong, it’s your role to swoop in and find the right type of help so they can get back to a place of comfort and self-confidence.

If your child is struggling, it’s crucial to find someone who understands…

When you’re seeking someone to help your child, you want someone who “gets” them; you want somebody who understands how fragile they are and how urgent it is to act quickly.

Your child is in their most vulnerable state. They feel so alone and perceive that no one understands them or has been where they are. Perhaps they don’t even know why they are feeling this way. They may lash out or retreat into themselves, and you are desperate to draw them out and fix the problem.

When you find someone who truly cares about your child and has answers, it’s a relief. You don’t have to try to help them on your own. We can work together to uncover solutions to alleviate their pain. You can be assured there’s a path forward and a partner in helping your child get there.

To get help for your child, you used to have to rely on general referrals from pediatricians, schools, friends, etc. Sure, the Internet has made it easier to search for a therapist, but it is still difficult to find someone in your neighborhood who also specializes in your child’s particular issue.

Online therapy is the answer!

Really, in-person therapy is just one way to deliver support. The online option has numerous advantages…

  • Scheduling is flexible, which is convenient for busy families on the go.
  • It saves time because you’re not driving to appointments or waiting for sessions to start.
  • You can see your therapist from the comfort of your home.
  • Children easily participate by using electronic devices with which they’re already comfortable.
  • Parents have at-home resources at their disposal to help their kids work on therapeutic goals.
  • Skills can easily be applied to everyday situations.
  • Children report feeling less self-conscious talking online, so they are more willing to share.

Whether you have a smartphone or a laptop with video capability, you can easily dial in to our sessions with your device. All you need is a high-speed Wi-Fi connection and a quiet room away from others to ensure privacy.

For our online sessions, I use a HIPAA-compliant video conferencing technology that ensures your privacy, security, and confidentiality.
