Why online sessions?  

1. Convenience Meeting with your client online provides them with the convenience of meeting you without fighting traffic and finding parking to get to your office. Time is saved and, in an increasingly busy world, time is very precious. Stressed out individuals and couples can now meet with their therapist in the comfort of their own home, office, or hotel room, while traveling.   2. Comfort Coming to a therapist’s office can be somewhat intimidating. Our clients are out of their familiar environments and – in some sense – on ‘our turf’. It is not conducive to the ease of transaction that is essential in a therapeutic relationship. Meeting them while they are sitting on their couch, in their own home, allows for a greater sense of comfort and safety on their part. 

   3. Need There is a tremendous need for therapy around the world. And, in some areas, the need is unmet by local providers. Think of small towns in North Dakota or Alaska, or Ex-Pats living in Dubai looking for English speaking therapists. Some studies show that there is one mental health provider in India for every 400,000 people. (By the way, English is one of two official languages in India and they have a booming economy and a growing mental health crisis). China is another area where the need for mental health care far outpaces the available providers. The need is clear and we, with the ability to meet that need, should explore ways to do it. 

 4. Confidentiality I live in Sparta, MI but I grew up in a small town in Middleboro, Ma. We all knew where the local therapist’s office was and community mental health center. We also knew what car most of our neighbors drove. So, if you saw your friend’s car parked at the local counselor’s office – well, you get the picture. And, there was, of course, always the risk of meeting your neighbor or boss in the waiting room. One can see how online counseling provides just that extra layer of confidentiality in small town America.
