When I was first approached…Better Help Careers…. to perhaps team up with them on a youtube series among the things that was actually important to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I discussed what what subjects I chose to provide and also you understand my own views when when needed or appropriate to share them and I was given that by a they generally stated you understand we trust you as a clinical expert and

we’re gon na trust you to go out there and speak about what you know and one of the things that I really wished to address is the reality that I’m not simply here to state that online therapy is the answer for everything you understand I believe it can be extremely helpful for many people I have actually seen it myself dealing with people from a couple of months as much as over a year and I seen how being able to message and also have video sessions with someone is really a it

almost enriches the the healing experience in a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see people in person and I thoroughly take pleasure in that and there are people that I see there that I wouldn’t think about seeing online either they would not be appropriate we wouldn’t be able to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it just wouldn’t feel comfy and and that’s fine those 2 things can both be true and I think among the things that I wish to begin to have people think about exists’s a place for both offline and online treatment it is truly a matter of you understand choosing what’s right for you but also what’s most suitable for you with the help of an expert when I speak about certain counseling styles or approaches as being appropriate for you what I imply by that is that it would be the best method for

the particular problem that you’re handling and I think that a person of the concerns that a lot of individuals have is that online counseling is attempting to replace offline therapy and I can tell you 100% that that’s not true I have actually had numerous conversations with the founder of where he has mentioned that his audience isn’t to take on traditional practices or put psychologists or certified specialists out of business his mission is to supply psychological health access to the people who aren’t going to enter the therapy workplace and I 100% support that mission and I believe it’s important and we have a problem with gain access to

to mental healthcare in this nation and is one solution as our other online companies I was pointing out previously that there are things that I personally think that online therapy is better for or offline treatment is better for and I’ve actually I’ve actually discussed this in other settings because it is something I feel quite passionate about and I have to say that my viewpoint has been favored by companies like in regards to ideally how they how they work with individuals that present for care so I simply wished to invest a couple of minutes discussing my own is my own personal opinion about the important things that are most suitable for offline versus online therapy so in my view I see online therapy as a wonderful place for people who are battling with hard life shifts for situations where they’re experiencing more stress than typical for scenarios where you understand they have a really clear-cut issue with anxiety or social stress and anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavior modification which is really structured can can benefit them which therapy due to the fact that it’s not as social as others is perfect for online counseling since it includes a lot of research it involves worksheets it includes learning specific abilities and methods so moderate milder conditions like moderate anxiety mild depression adjustment conditions even PTSD as long as like the individual has actually gotten care initially elsewhere these are all things that can be addressed through online therapy you understand consider someone who has a agoraphobia and perhaps they reach out to a counselor from their house due to the fact that they can’t leave their home and just simply to clarify agoraphobia is a condition where people are really terrified of being trapped and trapped in a location where they may have a panic attack therefore basically they begin to restrict their activities and restrict their activities up until many of them can’t leave their home without truly feeling significant distress so if somebody like that is at house and they can connect through their computer and connect to a counselor that’s an excellent initial step is that going to treat them never due to the fact that agoraphobia to be successfully dealt with requirements that person to be able to go outside and to resume regular activities and sometimes that includes a therapist going to their home to help them with that procedure clearly online counselors are going to have the ability to do that however might they be the bridge that got that person who hesitates to leave their house from that preliminary helpful technique to therapy where they can actually have a much better life 100% and this is what the space that aims to fill with their services my indicate this to this particular video and bringing these

things up is that I I wish to clearly interact that anything that I show you is going to be totally 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 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 share with you that online counseling is the cure-all for everything since I don’t believe that therefore you can constantly expect to hear my truthful opinion on what I believe from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you discovered this video intriguing and valuable if you did please like it listed below and do not hesitate to subscribe to our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing increasingly more videos on a variety of different mental health topics and please reach out if there’s something specific you would like us to address or cover in an approaching video
