Online Therapy

Online therapy, also known as virtual therapy, provides convenient, confidential interaction between you and our team of mental health professionals. Using Zoom for your appointment makes it easier for you to connect with our team, and attend your sessions in the comfort of your own home or the place of your choosing.

What Is Online Therapy?

Online therapy lets you choose how you interact with your mental health professionals. Your appointments are scheduled online in a private Zoom virtual office, allowing you to adhere to your recommended treatment plan while interacting with our team in a meaningful way. It remains completely confidential and allows you to choose where and when you wish to participate in your sessions.

How Does Online Therapy Work?

We will email you a Zoom link and an appointment reminder prior to your appointment. You can log on and wait in a virtual waiting room where we will join you. You receive the same treatment as you would in a face-to-face session, providing all the benefits without the need to travel.

It is particularly effective for patients suffering from major depression, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, and generalized anxiety disorder. Benefits of online therapy include:
