Do You Feel Too Busy To Make Time For Self-Care In Your Life?
Have you been feeling anxious or depressed lately, but you don’t know where to turn? Do you want to see a therapist, but you don’t have the time or energy for it? Perhaps you have children and going to a counseling office would mean having to pay for expensive childcare services. Or maybe you have social anxiety and, with the potential health concerns related to COVID-19, leaving the house makes you stressed.
Nonetheless, without anyone to turn to for support, you may find yourself empty, sad, and emotionally drained. Maybe you’re so busy that you’ve ended up neglecting self-care. Or perhaps you’re dealing with dysfunction in your relationships, and you struggle to maintain peace with your loved ones. When you combine all your daily responsibilities with managing your mental health, trying to keep up with everything can be exhausting.
Thankfully, with SMPsychotherapy’s warm, compassionate approach to online counseling, you can find time in your busy schedule to focus on yourself. Online therapy provides a safe, secure environment for you to work through your emotional issues, strengthen your relationships, and build a legacy of transformation.
Virtual Counseling Has Helped Many People Find Emotional Support During Hard Times
In the wake of COVID-19, online counseling has been a literal life-saver for many people. Thanks to our digital world, clients don’t have to lose connection with their therapists even amidst a pandemic. They don’t have to leave their home, and they can engage in counseling wherever they feel comfortable.
At the same time, the pandemic has created an atmosphere of anxiety, depression, and loneliness. There is so much uncertainty about the future, and many people feel scared or hopeless. And as more and more people stay home to combat the spread of disease, an epidemic of loneliness has ensued. Many people don’t have the social support networks they once did, and as a result, their mental health is deteriorating.
Thankfully, with virtual therapy, you don’t have to lose your emotional support. You can engage in counseling wherever you feel comfortable. Our approach to online therapy is gentle, compassionate, and capable of guiding you through this time of stress and isolation. And if you have a child or teen who is struggling, we would be honored to provide support for them as well.
Online Therapy Is A Convenient Way To Improve Relationships And Find Meaning In Life
While it’s important to address your symptoms, our ultimate goal is to help you find meaning and purpose in life. In order to do so, it is essential for the relationships in your life to be peaceful and empowering. That’s why a huge focus of our practice is on helping you work through relationship dysfunction. Online therapy provides a safe, confidential way to learn how to resolve conflict and improve your connections with others. Additionally, we want to help you find healing and relief from depression, anxiety, and any other mental health troubles you’re experiencing. This will enable you to focus on what matters in life and build a stronger legacy of healing and empowerment.
In the beginning, after our initial phone consultation, you will talk to your therapist via an online video-conferencing platform (you are also welcome to pursue phone therapy if that works better). If you are coming to us for family or couples counseling, we can accommodate multiple people in our online sessions together. And although our counselors may use different online platforms, all of them are 100-percent secure and HIPAA-compliant, meaning there is no risk of your privacy being compromised. Your safety and confidentiality are our first priority.
On your end, we encourage you to trust the healing process and go at your own pace. You don’t need to have your life figured out, and you don’t need to have your treatment plan set in stone. Oftentimes, new concerns arise spontaneously as therapy progresses, and that’s okay. We want to meet you wherever you are in life and help you solve the everyday problems that prevent you from being your best self. Or goal is for you to experience growth and transformation in your mood, self-esteem, relationships, and every aspect of your life.
In the wake of COVID-19, our entire practice made the transition to online therapy with immediate success. Since then, we’ve seen our clients find healing and relief in ways they never imagined. We want the same for you. As long as you have a quiet, private space to meet with us—whether it’s your home, your car, your yard, or wherever you feel comfortable—we can assure you we can help. Our approach to online counseling provides comfort, compassion, and convenience for children, teens, families, and anyone struggling during this difficult season of life.
You may have some questions and concerns about online therapy…
Can online therapy really help?
Absolutely! As a practice, we’ve been able to engage clients online just as successfully as we were able to with in-person sessions. The majority of our clients love virtual therapy. It’s convenient, easy to use, and allows for greater comfort and confidentiality, since you can engage in it from wherever you feel most at ease.
Is online counseling really private?
All the platforms we use are 100-percent HIPAA-compliant, which means there is no risk of anyone obtaining the information you share in our sessions. And as long as you have a safe, private space to engage in therapy with us, it won’t be a concern.
Is virtual counseling covered by insurance?
Given how much COVID-19 has shaken up the mental health services industry, the majority of insurance companies are covering online counseling. Before we get started with you, we will check to make sure your insurance plan covers the cost of treatment.
