Therapy on YOUR Schedule
Want to avoid traffic and talk to your therapist online?
Traffic in Denver and Fort Collins is a bit much, isn’t it? It’s hard enough to make the investment in therapy without having to fight traffic for an hour getting to your therapist of choice. The convenience of online counseling, sometimes called e-therapy or teletherapy, is hard to beat. And it’s been shown to be as effective as in office therapy. The technology is easy to use and incredibly secure. And it’s great whether you’re looking for individual online counseling or for online marriage counseling.
What is Online Therapy
It’s secure, live video meetings, not phone sessions, and the convenience is wonderful! I use doxy.me, an online platform used by physicians, psychiatrists, online therapists, and online psychologists around the globe. There is no user id or password to keep track of, and we use the same secure link for each session. People are finding the same comfort and ease in talking with me online that they do in my Fort Collins and Denver offices.
Why Online Therapy?
Aside from the convenience, online therapy is shown to be just as effective and helpful as in office marriage and individual counseling. Confidentiality is great as there is no neighbor to bump into in the waiting area and no need to explain to your boss why you need a 2-hour lunch. Online counseling also offers greater accessibility for folks with disabilities or for people who live in Western Colorado or other rural areas. You save on gas and time, and you expand your options for the kind of therapy that is right for you.
People who might consider online therapy:
- Busy individuals and families who need to save time
- People who want my unique approach who live too far away from my Fort Collins or Denver offices
- Busy couples who have difficulty finding the time to sit down and talk let alone drive to and from counseling sessions
- Subscribers to the blog who live too far from Fort Collins or Denver to see me in-office
- People with social phobia, depression, or a panic disorder
- Therapists, celebrities, or public officials who want to do their own personal work but want greater confidentiality
- Part of the responsibility for confidentiality is now on you. You will need to be sure your computer is secure and that you can meet in a private room in your home where no one will be eavesdropping or walking into your sessions uninvited.
- Technical difficulties need to be considered. Most often they are cleared up within the first session.
How does it work?
We schedule your sessions just like we would an in-office session. The only difference is when the time comes, we will meet online using doxy.me, a HIPAA compliant website dedicated to ease of use and to your confidentiality. All sessions are secure and private.
After we’ve scheduled your session, you will be emailed the link to fill out the initial paperwork as well as the link for our sessions.
