Telehealth: Therapy from home

It has been over 3 years now since I, and many other therapists, doctors and healers worldwide, have made the transition to telehealth only services. What happened out of necessity has now changed mental health treatment and accessibility forever. Because of that, let us take a look at what telehealth actually looks like, and why I continue to provide it.


I provide Telehealth therapy in the form of secure video or audio only telephone calls. Sometimes my therapy kittens Thunder and Lightning (who are admittingly bordering on therapy cats at this point) stop by and say hello, but mostly they like sleeping in their pink donut bed beside my chair.


Telehealth removes barriers around commuting, finding care for children, and the anxiety of going to a physical office. The biggest plus of telehealth is being able to engage in therapy from the comfort of your home (and my biggest plus is getting to see your pets occasionally enter the space to say "hi"). 



Make yourself some tea, sit in the comfiest spot of your house, grab your journal, maybe light a candle and take a few deep breaths before clicking your individualized and HIPPA compliant telehealth link to begin your session. Holistic trauma treatment is one click away.

I have worked exclusively via telehealth since March of 2020 and have found this an extremely effective way to offer treatment. Clients continue to report deep healing, and meet their goals in this virtual space. 


The research being done on EMDR particularly is showing that treatment is even more effective online!


In addition, as a MFT licensed in the state of California I can provide therapy services to most residents of California! This means you are no longer limited when seeking therapy by mileage or physical proximity- we can work together from different locations throughout the state.


It is especially important to me to be able to provide LGBTQIA+ and sex positive therapy to those who may live in more isolated or rural communities, and who would not be able to find a therapist that they feel safe with otherwise.


The biggest con of telehealth- outside of tech issues like spotty wifi or low battery- is safety.


If your home does not feel like a safe space for therapy for whatever reason, and you want to pursue treatment, please do not hesitate to contact me to set up your complimentary consultation call so we can discuss some creative solutions.
