Those who benefit most from online therapy are clients needing the convenience of an instant, streamlined connection that virtual therapy offers.

What Are The Drawbacks To Online Therapy?

The drawbacks to online therapy are few. The “cons” include not “officially” meeting in person, which sacrifices some of the intimacy of the process. In addition, the process can be a bit more focused when meeting in person versus virtual therapy as there aren’t the distractions of home or work occurring simultaneously. Also, if your house is crowded with family members, online therapy might not afford the privacy necessary to speak freely.

The length of online therapy varies from patient to patient. It also depends on many factors, including severity of symptoms, severity of anxiety, and time available to meet online.

Online therapy using ISTDP, the modality in which I am trained, is excellent and very effective for anxiety. I had many patients who began online therapy during Covid and had great results.

The online therapy I offer is very good for depression as it allows you to have the experience of working together on your goals as a team rather than do the hard work all alone.
