VIRTUAL COUNSELING FOR CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS
For many of us, scheduling time to see a therapist is a feat in and of itself. Tele-therapy (or virtual counseling) gives you the opportunity to meet with an online therapist when and where it's convenient for you.
Stuck at the office?
Busy traveling for work?
Want to meet from the privacy of your own home?
On a break between classes?
Whatever your reasons, online therapy makes all this possible and more.
"How is online counseling different from text message therapy?"
Unlike text therapy, which limits you to back-and-forth messaging and can often feel impersonal, online therapy gives you the same dedicated face-to-face support you would get in person. Imagine being able to work through crippling anxiety from your office—right before that big meeting or presentation. Or picture yourself being able to process through deep hurts from the comfort and privacy of your own home.
One of the major benefits of online counseling is that it gives you options.
"How does online therapy work?"
Teletherapy with an online therapist is conducted through a secure, HIPAA compliant, online video platform (similar to Skype or FaceTime). So as long as you live in California, all you'll have to do is simply log into the virtual office at the time of your appointment. This means you get to skip the traffic and cozy up in your favorite chair while you meet with me.
"I'm afraid online counseling won't feel personal."
Some people express fears that online therapy might lack the connection you'd expect to feel when you meet in person. This is understandable and makes sense, especially given that much of our online interactions are colored by the lens of social media and in its impact on authentic connection.
It's good to keep in mind that online therapy is just a space. Connection happens when there is freedom to be who you are, without fear of judgement.
In fact, research shows that telehealth is just as effective as in-person appointments, allowing you to access quality care from wherever it's most convenient for you.
Video therapy and online counseling make getting help possible.
From what our client's tell us, teletherapy is just another room and virtual couch on which to sit and talk. Online counseling at Whole Wellness Therapy can be a convenient, comfortable, safe space for you to explore and work out what's been bothering you or holding you back.
If you've been putting your own emotional health and wellness on hold because of your busy schedule or lack of options, you don't have to any longer.
Choose the convenience of online therapy and take your life off of pause today.
