Helping you and your family live the lives you want and deserve.
Online Therapy in Los Angeles and Ventura County
You want to start therapy, but that’s not as easy as it sounds.
Perhaps you live in downtown Los Angeles and you just don’t have time to sit in traffic for an hour each way trying to get to a therapy appointment. Even if you live in a less congested city in Ventura County life can feel hectic enough and you don’t want to add another thing to it. Or maybe you are just more comfortable attending counseling from the comfort of your own home.
Life happens and sometimes we need a simpler solution. Between all the hustle of life and unpredictableness sometimes it really is best to use technology to our advantage. You want high quality, specialized counseling services, but you also need therapy that fits with your lifestyle. Our team of psychologists and therapists understand.
What are the benefits of online therapy?
Online therapy can save you time. You don’t have to worry about Los Angeles traffic during rush hour. Maybe you are a mom that is constantly driving from place to place already. If it’s not to soccer practice, then it’s tutoring and if it’s not tutoring then it’s a playdate. Or maybe it’s already tough getting your teen out of the house. Possibly you work odd hours or spend long days in the office. WIth online counseling you are able to have your session at the office or in the comfort of your home, you choose.
Will I be able to connect with the therapist using online counseling?
Many people wonder if they will still be able to “connect” with their therapist in the same way as an in person session. We find that this is absolutely possible and you will likely be surprised how comfortable it can feel to have an online therapy session. In fact many prefer online therapy to traditional in person therapy sessions. Above all it is essential to make sure to take care of you and your family. In whatever format this looks like.
Online therapy is a professional mental health therapy delivered via a confidential and secure video conferencing system.
How Does Online Therapy Work?
It’s very easy! We use our integrated Simple Practice Telehealth system. You will receive an email reminder 24 hours prior to the appointment with a link to the call. And another reminder 10 minutes prior to the call both via email and text. You simply press the link to join the call.
What Will I Need For my online therapy session?
Try to be in a comfortable private place during the call with your therapist. It’s important to be aware of your surroundings during a online counseling session. Limiting distractions as much as possible. Make sure to test out your microphone and speaker before getting started on the call. You can either use a laptop/desktop or download the app to use on your phone. When you attend a counseling session in person at our Simi Valley office our therapists go to great lengths for you to speak comfortably. We want to ensure you have the same comfort during your online therapy session wherever you are.
