Online Therapy in New Milford, CT
Are You Looking For Online Support To Protect Your Relational Or Mental Well-Being?
Do you constantly worry, overthink things, or have so much trouble feeling safe that you don’t even want to leave the house? Is an overwhelming sense of hopelessness and dread preventing you from engaging in the world and finding joy in your life? Are you haunted by intrusive imagery and memories of a traumatic experience or event that forces you to relive the past?
Perhaps you are looking for help resolving problems in your relationship, but your partner is resistant to meeting with a couple’s counselor in person. Or maybe you are a new mother who is struggling with postpartum depression or anxiety and can’t find the space in your schedule to work on yourself.
Online counseling is a perfect solution for individuals and couples who are looking to start or continue a healing relationship when traditional in-person sessions aren’t possible. Injuries or health issues can make it difficult to meet in the office. A busy lifestyle or privacy concerns may be preventing you from reaching out for traditional help. Or you may live in a rural area, such as New Milford, and have long commutes or limited options for finding the help you’re looking for.
Whatever your situation and needs are, online counseling can offer you compassionate and effective support on your own terms. Whether you are looking for help dealing with mental health concerns, relationship problems, or challenges as a new mother, virtual therapy with New Milford Counseling Center can help you find greater peace of mind.
Talking To A Therapist Online Is Easier Than Ever
Although online counseling services have been around for years, changing needs, technological advances, and the COVID-19 virus have created a surge in teletherapy’s popularity and use. Given its convenience, accessibility, and ease of use, web therapy helps many clients save time and overcome obstacles that would normally cause them to miss sessions or ignore their pain altogether. Plus, people’s lives are so compartmentalized and our culture’s pace so hurried that working online is sometimes the best—if not only—option.
Anxiety, depression, trauma, and relationship problems are all common issues that have the power to disrupt your life. And though, it can be tempting to deny yourself care in hopes that time will heal all, sometimes trying to go at it alone can perpetuate the suffering and enable situations to evolve into crises.
Taking care of yourself sooner rather than later, allows you to identify and address the core of your suffering before it has the chance to grow into something greater. Online counseling provides you with the perfect option for overcoming challenges, gaining deeper self-awareness, and focusing on overall health and wellness from a distance.
Online Therapy Offers You Relief And Support With The Click Of A Button
Online psychotherapy works very similarly to traditional in-person sessions. It gives you a chance to explore thoughts, emotions, and experiences in a way that you may not have been able or allowed to before. At its core, the dynamics of our therapeutic relationship are the same, and the skills and treatment methods we offer online are just as effective as if we were meeting in-person. And because you can reach out from the comfort of your own home, you may even feel safer and more secure sharing your story.
The only potential drawback to talking to a counselor online is technical difficulties. Therefore, you will need to make sure you have a strong, high-speed internet connection and a reliable video conferencing device. That could be a laptop, PC with mic and camera, tablet, or a smartphone. And given that you can use a phone or other portable device for counseling sessions, we can meet up whenever or wherever is most convenient for you. Whether you have scheduling conflicts, trouble with finding transportation, or you simply feel more comfortable speaking from home, teletherapy can meet you where you are.
Scheduling appointments, making payment arrangements, billing, document sharing, streaming sessions—all can be done online using our secure telehealth portals, Therapy Notes, or our online counseling platform doxy.me. Both platforms are fully encrypted and HIPAA-compliant so you can enjoy the same level of confidentiality online as you do in person.
Working with a therapist online offers a convenient alternative to traditional counseling that meets you where you are. And because you don’t have to worry about missing sessions, working with us online can be more consistent and accelerate the healing process. With our help, you can learn to cultivate awareness around relationships, let go of past hurts, and improve how you think and feel about yourself and the world around you. In time, you can enjoy a healthier and happier life free of limitations.
Perhaps you are considering online counseling but still, have some questions…
How does online therapy work?
Virtual counseling is very similar to meeting in person with the most notable exception being that we will be working together from a distance. Before our first session, we’ll start with a brief phone conversation to get to know each other and some of the challenges that are bringing you to therapy. We’ll follow that up with an email link that will let you schedule an appointment, sign in to the session, and gain access to the virtual waiting room. Then, using the same secure online portal, we’ll meet for a 50 to 60-minute session.
How secure is my information online?
Everything we discuss and do online will be held to the highest standards of confidentiality. All billing, scheduling, document sharing, and meetings are secure and encrypted with HIPAA-compliant software intentionally designed for online therapy services. The only thing you need to worry about is finding a quiet, discreet spot in the home—or wherever you choose to be when we meet—so you can talk freely. Furthermore, working online eliminates the need to physically show up at our office, which increases your level of anonymity and privacy.
Will online therapy sessions be covered by insurance?
At New Milford Counseling Center we understand that the only way most people can receive the help they need is if insurance can cover it. That’s why we are happy to work with multiple insurance providers, including Blue Cross Blue Shield, Connecticare, and United Behavioral Healthcare, and HUSKY. Access to professional help, whether online or in-person, is our focus and the reason why we got into this business in the first place.
