Online Therapy

Convenience for Your Lifestyle

Get help from the comfort of your home! 

You're busy and therapy is important, but it's not the only important thing you have going on in your life. Online therapy takes less time overall, allowing you to spend more time on what matters the most. 

Virtual therapy allows you to skip traffic, stay safe in poor weather conditions, and easily access your appointments when plans change. It also means that you can take less time away from other responsibilities - work, school, childcare - while still getting the help you deserve.

Comprehensive Answers

What is online therapy?

Online therapy - commonly referred to as web-based therapy, telehealth, teletherapy or video therapy - is a psychotherapy service that is facilitated through the use of technology. It's fairly similar to Zoom or FaceTime, except your therapist uses a secure, encrypted web-based platform, with a ‘virtual office’ accessible only to you and your therapist.

Is online therapy comparable to in-office therapy?

Yes! You will receive the same care as you would coming to the office and we do the same therapeutic work. In fact, some individuals feel more at ease attending their sessions from the comfort of their home, making their sessions feel more engaging and enjoyable.


Studies show that video therapy is as effective as face-to-face therapy at an office and there are many benefits of attending online therapy vs. traditional in-person therapy. Click here to learn more about the potential benefits of online treatment. 

While I love online therapy, that doesn't mean you have to. If you are looking for an in-person therapist to meet with at an office setting, I am not that person. However, there are plenty of other fantastic therapists that are willing to meet you in an office space.
