Personal Online Therapy & Counseling For New Jersey Clients

Online therapy has gained popularity in recent years, partly due to the internet becoming a major part of many peoples' lives and work environments. People have become more comfortable with the idea of talking to a therapist online. It's a safe, private, and confidential way to talk through your problems with someone who can understand you and help you get on the right track.

What is online therapy?

Online therapy is a type of talk therapy that is carried out electronically. It is also known as teletherapy, distance therapy, or e-therapy. Online counseling is a type of professional mental health counseling that is carried out via the internet instead of through traditional face-to-face interactions.This more recent method of therapy has grown in acceptance over the past few years and now includes voice, text, or video messaging. 

Online counseling is an effective way to help those experiencing mental health issues who cannot attend traditional therapy sessions. This is great for people who have any concerns that they feel unable to talk to their friends and family about, or for whom a local peer group is not available.

Does online therapy work?

Online therapy has been shown to be useful in treating anxiety, sadness, and trauma, according to several studies. Patients who receive treatment in person or online report similar levels of patient satisfaction, and generally the more sessions a person attends, regardless of the mode of therapy, the better the results.

What are the advantages of online counseling?

Online counseling is relatively new, but it is growing rapidly. According to Mental Health America, 19.86% of American adults are experiencing mental illness. That is equivalent to nearly 50 million Americans. As a result, the number of people seeking mental health services is expected to rise. According to a nationwide poll by the American Psychiatric Association, the percentage of Americans saying they would use telehealth services for mental healthcare increased from 49% in 2020 to 59% in 2021.

Unlike in-person therapy sessions, online counseling allows for flexibility and accessibility. You can connect to a therapist at any time, from anywhere. You don't have to spend the time and energy to travel to and from a standard in-person treatment clinic. Online therapy can also be a helpful substitute for traditional in-person therapy settings for those who are unable to leave their homes due to a variety of conditions, such as medical or mental illness, or for people who are housebound or disabled.

Online counseling is also private, and more secure than traditional treatment. If you prefer to keep your mental health treatment private and discreet, you might find it simpler to do so with online counseling services.

Since online mental health services do not have the overhead expenses of physical clinics, like rent and utilities, they are frequently less expensive than traditional in-person counseling. Similar to in-person treatment, the cost of online therapy varies between therapists and between online counseling platforms.

Online counseling gives clients easier access to a larger selection of qualified therapists and clinical social workers, as well as a range of treatment modalities like cognitive behavioral therapy. There are also online therapists who share similar characteristics with their clients, speak multiple languages, have experience working with clients from various backgrounds, and are affiliated with specific communities, such as the LGBTQ+ community and the racial justice community.

You can create more room in your life for connection, self-actualization, and happiness by getting to know yourself and your experiences more thoroughly through therapy.
