Does online therapy work for children?
Yes, an experienced therapist can bring many of the same tools and practices to an online therapy environment that would be typically used in an office setting. Cognitive-behavioral therapy, play therapy, art therapy, and narrative therapy can all be useful methods of working with children online. Our work with children includes a strong parenting component to help skills carry over to everyday life.
What are the potential benefits of online therapy? Is it effective?
Similar to in-person therapy, online therapy is proven to be beneficial to those seeking help with anxiety, depression, low motivation, stress, relationship issues, parenting challenges, work/life balance, and attention difficulties. For many, there are new challenges associated with COVID-19, such as worries about the impact of the virus itself, increased role demands (working from home while homeschooling children), financial stressors, and concern about the future. Short-term online therapy may be helpful in learning to cope during these unprecedented, uncertain times.
Does your practice offer therapists licensed in my state?
State licensing laws require therapists to be licensed in the state where they are located and where the client is located. During the COVID-19 pandemic, some states have temporarily relaxed their restrictions to support continuity of care, which means we are unable to start therapy with clients across state lines. For this reason, it is important to find a therapist that is licensed in your state. Our therapists are currently licensed in California, Maryland, North Carolina (pending), New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, and Washington, DC.
How do I find the right therapist for me?
It is important to find a therapist experienced using treatment methods that are proven most effective in helping you work through your challenges. When you contact our office, our Client Services specialist will ask you questions to find the best match while taking into account your scheduling preferences. We will then schedule the intake appointment with the therapist.
