Online and Telephone Therapy
"Therapy by text" is widely covered in news media as a convenient and less costly version of the same therapy available in person, Be cautious, however, as many online services portray themselves as therapy but in fine print claim they are really merely self-help. Psychotherapy with a licensed professional is available online and by phone and text. Be sure to work with a therapist licensed in your state, as this is the only form of distance therapy approved by state laws and ethics boards. I approach what is called the "distance therapy" experience using all available forms of technology as needed: online video, phone and text, and I do so while maintaining the highest possible standard of care and professional ethics. I am licensed in both New York and Florida. If you are curious about distance therapy, please don't hesitate to contact me. While distance therapy can be equally as effective as therapy in person, there are some limitations and best practices to follow. We can discuss whether distance therapy is the best option for you.
