What is teletherapy?
When building my practice, I did more research on location than on anything else. I wanted to be centrally located so I could help as many people as possible. I can’t think of a more central location that right here online. More and more therapists are offering services online in an effort to make services more assessable and convenient. Gone are the days of laying on the couch and expressing your stream of consciousness. We’re moving in the direction of conducting sessions at nap time, break time, or even in the morning before work.
Teletherapy or online therapy is conducted using a video-based platform that is HIPPA compliant and secure. I can guarantee privacy on my end and sessions take place in a private office. I use a sound machine and earbuds/headphones. To ensure your privacy, please make sure you have a private space to use and use earbuds or headphones as hearing my voice through a speaker can be distracting. Additionally, it provides an extra layer of security to ensure your privacy on your end. Please feel free to let me know should someone else enter the room and we need to pause for a moment.
As a Licensed Professional Counselor in NJ, I am only allowed to provide therapy services to other residents of NJ.
Please note that Skype and FaceTime are not HIPPA compliant methods of communication meaning that confidentially cannot be guaranteed and you’re session is not secure. Please make sure when engaging in this service with any professional that you’re information is protected.
I get that going to therapy may not exactly be how you chose to spend your time. Maybe your parents or school are making you, maybe things have been “off” with you and you can’t figure out why, maybe friends, relationships, school, your parents, thinking about college, and making sure everything looks perfect is beyond overwhelming. Whatever the reason, whatever the challenge, it’s something that we can figure out together.
I’m not going to pretend like I know what it’s like to be you but I can promise that I will do everything I can to understand what’s its like and work with you on your goals.
One of the best parts about this is that I don’t make you come to my office. We do video chat our sessions so they are more convenient for you and it’s easier to squeeze in this time for yourself.
