Online Therapy

Online Therapy at Red Cedar

Online therapy is a great way for individuals to receive professional counseling services from the comfort of their own home. During the current national health pandemic, remote therapy is great for individuals to stay healthy physically and mentally, by receiving the same great counseling support without the risk of being close to other people for an extended period of time.

Online therapy is also a healthy way for those with a busy schedule to still receive counseling services. Individuals who live far away from the counseling location, or don’t have time to commute and sit down with a counselor, can utilize the benefits of online counseling to still receive the services they need. Please make sure you are in a private location without disturbances during your scheduled session. This ensures your privacy, and allows you to get the most out of your session with your counselor.

Frequently Asked

Online therapy works just like in-person therapy, only you don’t have to come into the office. Online therapy sessions utilize technology, either over the phone or on a computer, to connect the counselor with the client and discuss the necessary counseling topics. All counseling sessions are still HIPAA-compliant, and privacy is always a top priority. Anything shared during the duration of the virtual therapy sessions is protected just like it would be in the office.

Online therapy sessions differ depending on the needs of both the counselor and the individual receiving the counseling. Speak with your desired counselor to choose an online counseling tool that works best for both parties. Some individuals may choose to use a video chat platform, in order to talk face-to-face, while others may prefer a simple phone call. Virtual therapy offers a degree of anonymity for individuals who struggle to sit down and discuss difficult emotions in person, while also offering individuals the opportunity to receive counseling in a location where they feel most comfortable.

There is no set number of therapy sessions and no one therapy strategy that works for everyone. Rather, counselors take into consideration each individual’s needs to create a strategy and therapy plan that works best for them. Some individuals may find that they are able to manage their emotions or process difficulties after only a few therapy sessions. Others may find that a consistent therapy schedule is a healthy option for them to process past difficulties and continue pursuing healthy habits in the future.

The number and consistency of anger management therapy sessions is completely up to the individual. At any time, for any reason, an individual can choose to have more consistent therapy sessions or to stop therapy sessions altogether.

Online Therapy & COVID-19

COVID-19 has forced everyone to stay home more often and create a new “normal” way of living. Many employees are learning to work remotely, from a new home office, and families are restructuring their ways of balancing work, school, sports, and activities all from their home. These times can be stressful for everyone, and the inability to leave home and interact with other people can cause many people to feel new emotions that are difficult to process and handle in a healthy way.

Online therapy during the COVID-19 pandemic is a great way for individuals to process the difficulties associated with new life changes in a healthy way. Speaking with a counselor about the new stresses and challenges of life allows individuals to process emotions and develop an excellent set of skills for handling challenges with a healthy, positive perspective.

During the new requirements for safety, it’s difficult to feel in control of your own life. Take control of your mental health by speaking with a trained counselor online from the comfort of your home. Online therapy can help individuals discover a more positive outlook during a scary, challenging time, but can also help families create a healthy home structure during emotional, stressful times.

Adults are not the only ones facing new hardships with the COVID-19 pandemic. Children are also struggling with the cancellation of their favorite activities, and the inability to spend time with all of their friends. It can be difficult for a young child to understand why they are having to face so many challenges, and the home environment can become tense as everyone reacts to changes differently. Online family therapy is a great way for families to discuss openly with a counselor their emotions and difficulties from staying at home, and create healthy ways of supporting one another in the home as a team.
