Frequently Asked Questions

How do you know if your problems are "big" enough for online therapy?

When considering taking the step to seek mental health services, there is no need to question or worry about whether your problems are "big" enough to warrant it.  Everyone can benefit from mental health support at times throughout their lives, and it can be helpful to think of emotional wellness as just another aspect of your health to monitor and maintain.  Just as you visit a dentist or doctor for regular check-ups and non-urgent needs, our mental health benefits from proactive and regular attention.  It can be helpful to remember that therapy does not have to be a long term commitment; some people truly do benefit from one or two sessions, while others may be best helped by a longer course of treatment.  A good therapist will never question you for seeking care for your emotional wellness, we welcome anyone interested in improving their mental health!
