My Approach

Online therapy has been proven to be as effective as in-person therapy.  Here are some benefits or advantages of online therapy or teletherapy:

  • Easier access: Clients who live in remote areas or who have limited mobility or limited access to transportation may be more motivated to participate in online therapy.

  • Reduced cost: Online therapy eliminates the costs associated with travel time and gas.

  • More consistent therapy: Online therapy decreases absences due to poor weather conditions or sickness, allowing clients to participate in therapy on a regular basis.

  • More intense therapy: Online therapy can be scheduled more frequently, as clients do not have to commute long distances.

  • Increased progress: Since online therapy provides more intense therapy, it can accelerate progress.

  • Better access to specialists: Online therapy can allow individuals in remote areas to get help from specialists who may not be available in their geographic location.

  • Psychological comfort: Online therapy can help with eliminating the social stigma related to receiving mental counseling or other therapy.

  • Flexibility: Clients have access to more specialists and can select the specialists who can work with their schedules.

I utilize an Integrative approach to providing therapeutic support, as I adapt my approaches and techniques to provide individualized support, unique to each person's wants and needs (which varies, even over the course of treatment). 

 

My innate, foundational therapeutic approach is Person- or Client- Centered, see brief description below:

 

Person-Centered Therapy uses a non-authoritative approach that allows clients to take more of a lead in discussions so that, in the process, they will discover their own solutions. The therapist acts as a compassionate facilitator, listening without judgment and acknowledging the client’s experience without moving the conversation in another direction. The therapist is there to encourage and support the client and to guide the therapeutic process without interrupting or interfering with the client’s process of self-discovery.

  ​​

I also have a background in providing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which is widely known to be a leading evidence-based treatment approach, see brief description below:

 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) focuses on modifying dysfunctional emotions, behaviors, and thoughts by interrogating and uprooting negative or irrational beliefs. Considered a "solutions-oriented" form of talk therapy, CBT rests on the idea that thoughts and perceptions influence behavior. Feeling distressed, in some cases, may distort one’s perception of reality. CBT aims to identify harmful thoughts, assess whether they are an accurate depiction of reality, and, if they are not, employ strategies to challenge and overcome them.
