When I was first approached…Better Help Questions…. to possibly collaborate with them on a youtube series among the important things that was truly important to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I discussed what what subjects I picked to present and likewise you understand my own views when when essential or appropriate to share them and I was granted that by a they basically stated you understand we trust you as a scientific professional and

we’re gon na trust you to go out there and discuss what you know and one of the important things that I really wanted to address is the truth that I’m not simply here to say that online therapy is the answer for everything you understand I believe it can be exceptionally helpful for lots of people I have actually seen it myself dealing with people from a few months up to over a year and I seen how being able to message and also have video sessions with somebody is actually a it

almost enhances the the therapeutic experience in a manner at the same time I have a private practice where I see people face-to-face and I thoroughly delight in that and there are individuals that I see there that I would not think about seeing online either they would not be appropriate we would not have the ability to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it just would not feel comfy and which’s fine 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 online and offline therapy it is actually a matter of you understand choosing what’s right for you but also what’s most appropriate for you with the help of an expert when I speak about certain therapy styles or methods as being appropriate for you what I imply by that is that it would be the best method for
