We’ll bring the therapy, you bring the couch
Busy professional women can’t always make it into the office to meet a therapist. Whether it’s a packed schedule, childcare responsibilities, desire to reduce commute time, or just a simple preference, more and more people are choosing to access therapy via video from the comfort of their home or private office.
Therapy that’s effective, convenient, and confidential
Research has found that in most cases, video therapy sessions are just as effective as in-person treatment. Which is fantastic news for anyone who doesn’t want to sacrifice quality for convenience.
In many respects, video therapy (sometimes referred to as teletherapy or Zoom therapy) looks a lot like a traditional therapy appointment. You’ll have a reserved 50-minute appointment time to meet with your therapist, and most clients come during the same slot each week. You and your therapist will go through a similar process of getting to know each other, building clarity about your goals, and developing a plan to work towards them together online.
At Stella Nova, video therapy is conducted over our secure, HIPAA compliant platform. If you’re used to using Zoom or Skype, it will look a lot like that—just one click from your email and you’re there.
Hesitant about getting online?
While many people are excited about the convenience video therapy offers, others are hesitant for a variety of reasons. The might wonder whether they’ll feel less connected to their therapist, or have concerns about how privacy works online.
We get it! And we’re here to answer all your questions. In our experience, video therapy can feel awkward initially, but most of our clients find that they settle in and get comfortable quickly during their first session.
