Benefits of Online Therapy in Florida

Online therapy has many benefits, so let’s start there. One of the biggest is convenience. Sometimes, people choose online therapy because they live in a more rural area of the state. So, there are few options for mental health services. You may have suffered from PTSD for years. As a result, you are only looking for someone who specializes in PTSD treatment. Online therapy opens up more options for you as you’re able to see a therapist anywhere in the state of Florida. In fact, our therapists enjoy working with people not only in Tampa or St. Pete where our offices are located. We enjoy helping clients from the Everglades to Central Florida near Lake George. Or. even the Northern part of the state such as Tallahassee. The bottom line is, we’re able to help people throughout the state.

Other people who appreciate online therapy may be caretakers who can’t leave a loved one.

This might include:

  • New moms or someone caring for a spouse on hospice
  • People who have a busy schedule and can’t fit in a drive to the office
  • People with a health issue that makes leaving the house challenging
Whatever your situation is, online therapy can be a great way for you to work with our trained therapists.

Other benefits include the ability to “share screen” and view a resource together. Online therapy also helps clinicians learn more about your life as they see your surroundings. The comfort of being in your own space may also allow you to go deeper in session.

In the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, our entire office moved to telehealth for a time. Many of us were used to almost only conducting in-person counseling sessions. But, we felt this move was essential to keep everyone safe.

Yet, providing the best possible mental health treatment was still our top priority. Thus, we continued to refine our process. We’ve adjusted to offer the highest quality treatment via telehealth. Now, we have many of our clinicians enjoy meeting with therapy clients online! They’ve actually decided to continue offering online therapy for the foreseeable future.

Types of Online Therapy

Many of the concerns that might bring a person to therapy are appropriate for online therapy. And our psychologists can offer support for a wide range of concerns online. In fact, all our primary services are available online. That said, some of our specialties include online anxiety treatment, online trauma therapy, and online EMDR.

Online Anxiety Treatment

Anxiety treatment is an excellent candidate for online mental health services. Your therapist can meet in a place where you are already comfortable to work on coping skills to use as a resource when anxious. This may be a place like your living room couch. Or, they can virtually join you in a situation that is provoking your anxiety and work with you in that setting. Our clinicians have seen excellent results with online anxiety treatment. We encourage you to consider this as an option if you’re seeking therapy for anxiety.

Online Trauma Therapy

Our psychologists often offer trauma therapy and PTSD treatment online. Trauma therapy is an area where it’s important to work with a specialist. You want to see a therapist with a high level of training. Specifically, in trauma treatment to make sure you’re getting the best care possible. The good news? Most trauma therapies have offerings through an online therapy platform.

Online EMDR

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is gaining popularity in the field. And, for good reason: it works. EMDR has features on Grey’s anatomy, used by Prince Harry, and written about in countless written publications. It’s an amazing form of psychotherapy that can be used as standalone therapy. It can also get mixed in with seeing your regular therapist as a way to get “unstuck.” Luckily, it’s also a type of therapy that is available online. We are proud to have a skilled online EMDR therapist on staff.
