Transformative Connections is a completely virtual private practice. This means I offer sessions online only, statewide to those physically located in California.
This way of delivering services is also known as Teletherapy, Telehealth, virtual counseling or E-therapy.
In our modern world where we’re all busy and on the go, online therapy makes mental health care more accessible while having the ability to simultaneously keep your information secure.
Instead of having to spend precious time commuting to my office, I’m able to link up with you effortlessly online. Who doesn’t like the idea of getting comfy on your couch or chair while doing some transformational therapy?
And online therapy allows you a greater degree of privacy than could be afforded to you at a physical office as well, as you don’t ever have to worry about running into someone. The sessions take place via a HIPAA-compliant, encrypted and secure platform that allows confidential, synchronous (real-time) video communication between you and me.
Online therapy being used widely is relatively new, but studies are now showing that it can be useful to treat many of the same mental health issues as face-to-face treatment (How well is telepsychology working?).
