Online Therapy is a service I recently added, and is a result of innovations in technology matched with current needs of my clients. Now you can have the same benefits of live sessions from the comfort of your own home.
Note: Live office visits are still available if you live in or around Long Beach. However, if you don’t want to drive or if you live far from Long Beach and would like to work with me, then online therapy is available for you!
Listed Below Are The Advantages And Disadvantages Of Online Therapy. Read On Below To Find Out If This Is Right For You!

Disadvantages Of Online Therapy:
One risk that exists in performing therapy services over the Internet is that confidentiality may be compromised. The privacy of communications over the Internet (e-mail) is less assured, at least today, than when providing live (person to person) therapy, or even services via the telephone. Online risks to confidentiality may occur at various points. For example, one needs to know whether or not others at the client’s location have access to the communications. For instance, if the client/patient is communicating with the therapist from work or home, the employer or spouse/partner may have the right or ability to access e-mail communications.
The ability of others to gain access to communications between the therapist and client during the e-mail or online transmission must also be considered. While encryption may help, it is not yet foolproof.
Online therapy may not be covered by one’s insurance
