Traffic in Roswell, Marietta, and Alpharetta is a bit much, isn’t it? And Woodstock? It’s a lot, and it seems to keep getting worse. It’s hard enough to make the investment in marriage counseling or Sex Therapy in Georgia without having to fight traffic for an hour getting to your therapist of choice. Not to mention if one of you travels for work! Scheduling marriage counseling can be tricky with how busy we all are these days. The convenience of online counseling, sometimes called e-therapy or teletherapy, is hard to beat! People are relieved they don’t have to get out and drive the 10-20 miles to see their therapist. Access to therapy is easier than ever. Plus it’s been shown in thousands of studies now to be as effective as in office therapy. The technology is easy to use and incredibly secure. And it’s available whether you’re looking for individual online counseling or for online marriage counseling.
It’s secure, live video meetings, not phone sessions, and the convenience is wonderful! My practice uses doxy.me which is an online platform used by physicians, psychiatrists, online therapists, and online psychologists. There is no login required, no user id or password to lose. We will use the same link for each marriage counseling or individual counseling session. People are finding the same comfort and ease in talking with me online that they did when I was in my Roswell, Georgia office.
Aside from the convenience, online therapy is shown to be just as effective and helpful as in office marriage and individual counseling. Confidentiality is great as there is no neighbor to bump into in the waiting area and no need to explain to your boss why you need a 2-hour lunch. Online counseling also offers greater accessibility for folks with disabilities or for people who live in rural areas who have greater difficulty getting to marriage counseling in Georgia. You save on gas and time, and you expand your options for the kind of therapy and therapist that is right for you.
*Busy individuals and families who need to save time
*Busy couples who have difficulty finding the time to sit down and talk let alone drive to and from counseling sessions
*Couples and families who travel for work and need to be able to have a session regardless of whether they are out of town
*People with social phobia, depression, or a panic disorder
*Folks who want a greater degree of confidentiality
Part of the responsibility for confidentiality is now on you. You will need to be sure your computer is secure and that you can meet in a private room in your home where no one will be eavesdropping or walking into your sessions uninvited.
Technical difficulties need to be considered. Most often they are cleared up within the first session.
We schedule your marriage counseling (or individual) sessions just like we would an in-office session. The only difference is when the time comes, we will meet online using doxy.me, a HIPAA compliant website dedicated to ease of use and to your confidentiality. All sessions are secure and private.
After we’ve scheduled your session, you will be emailed the link to fill out the initial paperwork as well as the link for our sessions.
