Can Online Counseling Really work for me?
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way many people work. So many of us had to quickly learn how to work from home. Therapists also had to transition to online counseling for safety reasons too.
COVID-19 has also contributed to a widespread increase in people dealing with depression, anxiety, family stressors and addiction. If you have a compromised immune system, it may feel downright scary to leave the house. If you are dealing with these emotional issues or feel wary about seeing a therapist for an “in-person” session, online counseling may be the perfect fit for you! Some benefits of online counseling are listed below-
** It eliminates transportation headaches. If you have a physical disability or care for someone who does, no worries about transporting yourself or your loved one in and out of the home.
** You can have total privacy and get the support you need.
** If all the therapists in your city are full or have long waiting lists, no need to wait to get the care you deserve.
** You don’t need special equipment or download a complicated program to have an online session. If you have a smartphone you can have counseling using secure connections.
** Many insurance companies are covering online sessions too!
The therapists offering online sessions at Lakeside Counseling and Wellness Center can see anyone throughout the state of Florida from the comfort of your own home and we can typically schedule your first session within a week or two from your call.
