Covid-19 and Telehealth
One of the main factors in successful therapy that produces lasting change, is the connection you have with your therapist. This builds a sense of safety and closeness where we’re able to explore the harder stuff. Building this kind of bond through a phone or computer may seem impossible, but I think you’d be surprised about how well it can be done.
There are many questions and concerns that clients have about Telehealth:
I just do better face to face, will this be helpful?
Will this still be confidential? Will someone on your end hear me?
How do I find a quite private place now that the kids are home?
I can see individual therapy being ok, but can couples therapy still be effective remotely?
These are all great and important questions. Therapy is a big deal especially over a platform that may feel unfamiliar. I will do my best to talk through all these concerns and provide the reassurance and flexibility where I can.
I believe that we are hard-wired for closeness and a sense of belonging. The Covid-19 outbreak has gotten in the way of us finding that closeness in our usual ways, through a hug, or a touch. It is harder to know how to “be with” in these extreme circumstances when we may need that the most. You are not alone in these feelings. I am here to help.
