When I was first approached…Better Help Therapy Den…. to potentially team up with them on a youtube series one of the things that was truly important to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I discussed what what topics I picked to present and also you know my own views when when required or appropriate to share them and I was granted that by a they essentially said you understand we trust you as a scientific professional and

we’re gon na trust you to head out there and discuss what you know and one of the important things that I really wished to address is the truth that I’m not just here to state that online therapy is the answer for whatever you know I think it can be exceptionally useful for many people I’ve seen it myself dealing with individuals from a few months as much as over a year and I seen how having the ability to message and also have video sessions with someone is truly a it

nearly enriches the the therapeutic experience in such a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see individuals in person and I completely enjoy that and there are people that I see there that I would not consider seeing online either they would not be appropriate we wouldn’t have the ability to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it simply wouldn’t feel comfy and and that’s okay those 2 things can both be true and I think one of the things that I want to begin to have individuals think of 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 likewise what’s most appropriate for you with the help of an expert when I discuss certain therapy designs or techniques as being appropriate for you what I suggest by that is that it would be the very best approach for

the particular issue that you’re dealing with and I think that a person of the issues that a great deal of individuals have is that online counseling is attempting to change offline therapy and I can inform you 100% that that’s not real I have actually had numerous conversations with the creator of where he has mentioned that his audience isn’t to compete with physical practices or put psychologists or licensed experts out of business his objective is to provide psychological health access to individuals who aren’t going to enter the therapy workplace and I 100% assistance that mission and I think it is necessary and we have a problem with gain access to

to mental healthcare in this country and is one solution as our other online business I was mentioning previously that there are things that I personally believe that online therapy is better suited for or offline therapy is more appropriate for and I’ve really I’ve in fact discussed this in other settings since it is something I feel quite enthusiastic about and I need to state that my viewpoint has been favored by companies like in regards to ideally how they how they deal with individuals that provide for care so I simply wanted to invest a number of minutes speaking about my own is my own individual opinion about the important things that are most appropriate for offline versus online treatment so in my view I see online treatment as a wonderful place for individuals who are fighting with difficult life transitions for situations where they’re experiencing more stress than normal for scenarios where you know they have a very well-defined issue with stress and anxiety or social stress and anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavioral therapy which is extremely structured can can benefit them and that therapy since it’s not as interpersonal as others is ideal for online counseling since it involves a great deal of research it includes worksheets it involves finding out particular skills and techniques so moderate milder conditions like moderate stress and anxiety mild depression modification conditions even PTSD as long as like the person has gotten care at first somewhere else these are all things that can be resolved through online counseling you know think of someone who has a agoraphobia and perhaps they connect to a counselor from their home due to the fact that they can’t leave their home and just just to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where people are actually horrified of being caught and caught in a location where they may have a panic attack and so basically they start to restrict their activities and limit their activities till much of them can’t leave their home without truly feeling significant distress so if someone like that is at home and they can reach out through their computer system and connect to a counselor that’s a terrific primary step is that going to treat them never since agoraphobia to be successfully treated requirements that person to be able to go outdoors and to resume normal activities and often that involves a therapist going to their home to help them with that process certainly online therapists are going to be able to do that however might they be the bridge that got that person who’s afraid to leave their house from that initial supportive approach to therapy where they can in fact have a much better life 100% and this is what the space 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 clearly interact that anything that I show you is going to be completely from where I stand as a professional psychologist and more notably what I think is as simply a human being on this earth attempting to do the very best that I can and so I I won’t tell you that something is appropriate that I do not believe is appropriate I won’t show you that online therapy is the cure-all for whatever because I do not believe that and so you can always expect to hear my honest viewpoint on what I believe from my own experience and knowledge base as a licensed psychologist I hope you found this video handy and fascinating if you did please like it below and feel free to sign up for our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing more and more videos on a range of various mental health topics and please reach out if there’s something specific you would like us to address or cover in an upcoming video
