At this time, all counseling services will be provided via live video conferencing, or telehealth.
This can be done anywhere you have a reliable internet connection.
While there are certainly some differences, with preparation and my support, you can still receive the same level of care as you would from an in-person session. Many clients prefer telehealth because of the convenience and ability for them to choose the environment that works best for them.
Tips for a successful telehealth session:
Choose a private location
Make sure the location you choose is in a private place that will have few distractions. Confidentiality and safety are most important.
It is often best to use a laptop or computer
However, if you need to use a smartphone, use it ‘hands-free’ with a phone stand or by propping it up.
Give yourself a few minutes before and after each session
This helps you transition into and out of therapy, much like you would during the drive to a physical location.
Use headphones or earbuds to enhance the experience
This is particularly helpful for EMDR sessions.
Bring tissues, a blanket, or a fidget toy
…or anything that may be comforting during the session.
