When I was first approached…Better Help Virtual Therapy…. to possibly team up with them on a youtube series one of the important things that was truly essential to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I discussed what what topics I selected to present and also you understand my own views when when needed or appropriate to share them and I was given that by a they basically said you understand we trust you as a medical expert and

we’re gon na trust you to go out there and speak about what you understand and among the important things that I truly wanted to address is the fact that I’m not just here to say that online therapy is the answer for everything you understand I think it can be exceptionally helpful for lots of people I have actually seen it myself dealing with people from a few months approximately over a year and I seen how being able to message and likewise have video sessions with someone is really a it

practically enriches the the healing 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 individuals that I see there that I wouldn’t consider seeing online either they wouldn’t be appropriate we wouldn’t have the ability to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it simply would not feel comfortable and and that’s fine those two things can both hold true and I believe one of the things that I wish to start to have people think about is there’s a location for both online and offline treatment 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 counseling designs or techniques as being appropriate for you what I imply by that is that it would be the very best method for

the particular issue that you’re dealing with and I think that one of the issues that a great deal of individuals have is that online counseling is attempting to change offline therapy and I can tell you 100% that that’s not real I have actually had lots of conversations with the founder 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 into the treatment office and I 100% support that objective and I think it’s important and we have a problem with access

to mental healthcare in this country and is one option as our other online companies I was discussing earlier that there are things that I personally think that online therapy is better for or offline therapy is better suited for and I’ve actually I’ve actually spoken about this in other settings because it is something I feel quite enthusiastic about and I have to state that my opinion has actually been popular by companies like in terms of hopefully how they how they deal with the people that present for care so I simply wanted to invest a couple of minutes talking about my own is my own personal viewpoint about the things that are most proper for online versus offline treatment so in my view I see online therapy as a terrific location for individuals who are dealing with hard life shifts for scenarios where they’re experiencing more tension than regular for situations where you know they have an extremely precise issue with anxiety or social anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavior modification which is extremely structured can can benefit them which treatment due to the fact that it’s not as interpersonal as others is best for online therapy since it includes a great deal of homework it involves worksheets it involves discovering particular abilities and methods so moderate milder conditions like moderate anxiety mild depression adjustment conditions even PTSD as long as like the person has actually received care at first somewhere else these are all things that can be dealt with through online counseling you know think of somebody who has a agoraphobia and maybe they reach out to a counselor from their home due to the fact that they can’t leave their house and simply just to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where people are really terrified of being caught and trapped in a location where they might have an anxiety attack and so essentially they start to restrict their activities and restrict their activities until a lot of them can’t leave their home without really feeling considerable distress so if somebody like that is at house and they can connect through their computer and link to a counselor that’s a great initial step is that going to cure them never due to the fact that agoraphobia to be successfully treated needs that individual to be able to go outdoors and to resume regular activities and often that includes a therapist going to their home to help them with that process clearly online therapists are going to have the ability to do that however might they be the bridge that got that individual who hesitates to leave their home from that initial encouraging method to counseling where they can actually have a much better life 100% and this is what the space that aims to fill with their services my point to this to this particular video and bringing these

things up is that I I wish to clearly communicate that anything that I share with you is going to be completely from where I stand as a professional psychologist and more importantly what I think is as just a human being on this earth trying to do the very best that I can and so I I won’t tell you that something is appropriate that I do not think is appropriate I won’t show you that online therapy is the cure-all for everything because I do not think that therefore you can always anticipate to hear my honest opinion on what I believe from my own experience and knowledge base as a licensed psychologist I hope you discovered this video interesting and practical 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 connect if there’s something particular you would like us to cover or address in an approaching video
