Online Therapy in California
So, you live in California and you’re looking for a therapist for your teen? Or perhaps you’re a college student or young adult dealing with the stress of #adulting and looking for mental health support but physically going to counseling every week is not convenient right now. Nonetheless, you still want to make your mental health a priority and get the help you or your teen deserve. That’s where online therapy from ANYWHERE in California comes in!
We totally get that life’s commitments can get in the way making it hard to schedule and who wants to spend time sitting in traffic? Um, no thanks! So, we are taking the stress out of the equation to make it easier for you to get the help you need to live your best life. We know that going to counseling is a big decision for you or your family and we respect the courage it takes you to make this initial step. That’s why our online therapists work so hard to make counseling an enjoyable experience for you, your teen, or your family.
What are the benefits of online therapy in California?
It’s SUPER convenient, like, stay in your PJs convenient!
Online therapy affords you or your teen the ability to meet with a therapist at a time and place that is convenient. That means you can have an online therapy session from your home, dorm room, car, or office. Also, you can meet with a therapist outside of traditional business hours. Need a lunchtime session? Sure thing! So, you don’t have to take time off school or work to get support for the issues that matter most to you.
It’s private and secure! (aka confidentiality)
While we are all about breaking the stigma and barriers to quality mental health care we maintain a secure, private virtual space that ensures confidentiality. We totally understand that it can be scary walking into a therapist’s office for the first time! If you’re worried about running into someone you might know then online therapy may be the answer you’re looking for. Meeting with an online therapist looks like any other zoom or facetime call, so you can have your session in any location that feels private and safe for you.
Access to Specialized Mental Health Services
Depending on where you’re located in the state of California, you may not have access to the mental health services that you’re looking for. While college campuses see the increased demand for mental health services and are overwhelmed with college students struggling with their mental health you may be waiting quite a while to get access to the support that you need. You shouldn’t have to wait and we don’t want you to!!!
A recent study by a Boston University researcher showed how the prevalence of anxiety and depression among college students are peaking at the highest levels they’ve ever been. One highlight of the study revealed that “94 percent of students say that they wouldn’t judge someone for seeking out help for mental health”… YAY for breaking the stigma of mental health support!!!
No matter where you live in California, you should have the ability to meet with a therapist who knows how to handle the issues you’re experiencing and offer you the best care possible. Our online therapists are skilled at handling a variety of issues many teens and young adults experience. This includes: navigating gender and sexual identity, managing anxiety and stress, depression, grief and loss, trauma, transitions to college life or #adulting and more.
Effective Care: Re-imagining how we provide care…
Wondering whether online therapy is as effective as in person therapy? The answer is YES!
Online therapy is, in many cases, as effective as receiving therapy face to face. While online therapy may not be for everyone, it provides a convenient, private and effective way to get the mental health health support you need!
Online Therapy Services:
Our skilled California therapy team offers a wide variety of mental health services online. Our online therapy services include:
Online Group Support for LGBTQIA+ Teens and Parents:
One of the unique services we offer for California teens and parents is an LGBTQIA+ therapy group. This group is to promote positive mental health and discuss common issues LGBTQIA+ teens and young adults face. These issues include questioning your identity, coming out, pronouns/preferred names, support from loved ones, low self-esteem and loneliness, romantic relationships, inclusion, and advocacy.
How Online Therapy at Therapyology Works:
We’ve gone to great lengths to make our online therapy program easy and convenient for our clients. All you need to access your session is a link provided by us, a secure internet connection, and a smartphone, tablet, or computer. How easy is that?!
We want our clients to feel prepared for their sessions and ready to tackle the tough stuff with their therapists. That’s why we recommend our clients login to their session about 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time to allow a few minutes to center yourself and breathe. This also allows you to take a minute to test your connection and technology. Collect yourself, relax, and get ready to do the work!
A note on privacy during online therapy:
We realize that talking about the hard things in earshot of the people you love can be difficult. Perhaps, you’re living with your parents, siblings, or a roommate and you don’t want them to overhear the session with your therapist.
If privacy is an issue in your space, there are a variety of recommendations that your Therapyology therapist can suggest you can do to address this issue. Finding a quiet, private area (bathroom, basement, heck, even a closet will do!) while using earphones can be great ways to address this. The chat feature is also a great way to communicate with your therapist if privacy is a concern. This is a great topic to bring up to your therapist if it is a concern. Our goal is to make you feel as comfortable and safe to get the support you need in therapy!
