When I was first approached…Better Help Careers…. to potentially work together with them on a youtube series one of the important things that was truly crucial to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I spoke about what what topics I picked to present and also you understand my own views when when needed or appropriate to share them and I was approved that by a they essentially stated you know we trust you as a clinical professional and

we’re gon na trust you to go out there and discuss what you understand and one of the important things that I really wished to address is the reality that I’m not just here to say that online therapy is the answer for everything you understand I believe it can be incredibly practical for lots of people I have actually seen it myself working with people from a couple of months up to over a year and I seen how being able to message and likewise have video sessions with somebody is actually a it

practically enhances the the healing experience in a manner at the same time I have a private practice where I see individuals in person and I thoroughly enjoy that and there are people that I see there that I wouldn’t consider seeing online either they wouldn’t be appropriate we wouldn’t be able to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it simply would not feel comfortable and which’s all right those two things can both hold true and I believe one of the important things that I wish to start to have people consider exists’s a place for both offline and online therapy it is truly a matter of you know choosing what’s right for you but likewise what’s most appropriate for you with the help of a professional when I discuss particular counseling styles or methods as being appropriate for you what I indicate by that is that it would be the very best approach for

the particular issue that you’re handling and I believe that one of the concerns that a great deal of people have is that online counseling is trying to change offline counseling and I can inform you 100% that that’s not true I’ve had lots of discussions with the creator of where he has actually mentioned that his audience isn’t to compete with traditional practices or put psychologists or certified professionals out of business his objective is to provide mental health access to the people who aren’t going to come into the therapy office and I 100% support that objective and I think it is necessary and we have an issue with gain access to

to mental health care in this country and is one service as our other online business I was discussing earlier that there are things that I personally believe that online treatment is better suited for or offline therapy is better suited for and I’ve in fact I’ve really spoken about this in other settings because it is something I feel quite enthusiastic about and I have to say that my opinion has been favored by companies like in terms of ideally how they how they deal with the people that present for care so I just wished to spend a couple of minutes discussing my own is my own personal viewpoint about the things that are most appropriate for online versus offline treatment so in my view I see online therapy as a terrific place for people who are dealing with difficult life transitions for circumstances where they’re experiencing more stress than typical for scenarios where you know they have a very well-defined concern with stress and anxiety or social stress and anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavioral therapy which is really structured can can benefit them which therapy due to the fact that it’s not as social as others is ideal for online counseling due to the fact that it includes a lot of research it includes worksheets it includes finding out particular skills and techniques so moderate milder conditions like moderate anxiety mild depression adjustment conditions even PTSD as long as like the individual has actually gotten care at first somewhere else these are all things that can be attended to through online counseling you know consider somebody who has a agoraphobia and maybe they connect to a therapist from their house due to the fact that they can’t leave their home and just just to clarify agoraphobia is a condition where individuals are actually frightened of being trapped and trapped in a location where they may have a panic attack therefore essentially they start to limit their activities and limit their activities till much of them can’t leave their home without truly feeling considerable distress so if someone like that is at house and they can reach out through their computer and link to a therapist that’s a fantastic initial step is that going to cure them absolutely not due to the fact that agoraphobia to be effectively treated needs that individual to be able to go outdoors and to resume typical activities and in some cases that involves a therapist going to their house to help them with that procedure obviously online counselors are going to be able to do that but could they be the bridge that got that individual who’s afraid to leave their home from that preliminary helpful technique to counseling where they can actually have a much better life 100% and this is what the gap that intends to fill with their services my indicate this to this specific video and bringing these

things up is that I I wish to plainly interact that anything that I share with you is going to be completely from where I stand as an expert psychologist and more notably what I think is as simply a human being on this earth attempting to do the best that I can therefore I I will not inform you that something is appropriate that I do not think is appropriate I will not show you that online therapy is the cure-all for whatever since I do not believe that therefore you can constantly expect to hear my honest opinion on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you discovered this video helpful and interesting if you did please like it listed below and do not hesitate to register for our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing increasingly more videos on a variety of various mental health subjects and please connect if there’s something particular you would like us to cover or resolve in an approaching video
