Online Therapy in Georgia
Having a hard time breaking away to have a therapy session?
You desire change but have a demanding schedule. So demanding that it is difficult to travel to a weekly office appointment. You really want to put yourself first, but realistically know that a 50-minute session easily becomes a 2-hour commitment with Atlanta traffic. You don't have time to sit in an office and talk about the things that bother you.
Or worse, you’re 3-hours away in South Georgia near Albany City where there are few options for therapists let alone Black therapists. You’re discouraged because options are limited and you don’t want everyone in your business.
What if we told you that your life doesn’t have to interfere with your ability to take care of yourself?
With online counseling, you can have your therapy session
wherever you are in Georgia.
Meeting with your online therapist via video without leaving your home or office changes the game. With online counseling, it’s easier than ever to fit sessions into your busy schedule.
What is Online Therapy
Online therapy allows you to connect with mental health services using the internet and communication platforms. There are different types of remote therapy, such as chat or phone therapy. However, video conferencing is most commonly used. At Simplicity Psychotherapy, we meet with clients virtually using a HIPAA secure video platform. Our Atlanta-based online therapists specialize in various areas such as anxiety, workplace stress, and relationship issues.
What can I talk about in Online Counseling?
Virtually everything you can accomplish in the therapist’s office* can be accomplished through online counseling.
Online therapy has been shown to have the same effectiveness as in-person therapy. Studies found Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) provided online to be just as effective as CBT provided in person when treating depression and anxiety. Online counseling has been shown to reduce symptoms of trauma including PTSD. Not only was the therapy successful, but clients also reported feeling connected and satisfied with the experience of therapy online.
Online therapy is for you if you:
- Have little free time and are looking for flexible meeting options
- Work from home and do not want or cannot go out for therapy
- Have physical difficulties, phobias, irregular transportations, or other limits to a regular office visit
- Between living in Douglasville and working in Midtown there's already enough driving in your life
Also called telehealth or telemedicine, online counseling sessions may be used to discuss stress management, burnout, goal setting, action planning, family problems, anxiety, depression, overall wellness and more.
Online therapy sessions involve a process similar to in-office sessions while allowing for connection between you and your therapist. Sessions are at intervals established by you and your online therapist using the same therapeutic approaches offered in the office. If possible, you can also meet in person from time to time.
