I am a licensed psychologist in the state of Connecticut and I offer telehealth counseling to clients in living in both Connecticut and Florida (You can find out more information regarding providing telehealth services in the state of Florida at http://www.flhealthsource.gov/telehealth/). Telehealth therapy provided through video, chat, or phone. Therapy must be provided through a HIPAA compliant platform, meaning that it is a platform in which your confidentiality is protected.
Do you ever get home from work, you’re exhausted, and now you have to drive to therapy. Or you have time during your lunch break, but you could never make it to your therapist’s office and back in time to have a full session. Or maybe, you found the perfect therapist, who you know could help you, but they’re just too far away? Online therapy might be a great option or you. While online counseling or telehealth has been around for a while, it is still new to lots of folks. Online counseling can be done through video, over the phone, or through text or email. I offer video sessions through a confidential client portal that allows you the freedom to get high quality, helpful therapy in your pajamas. To learn more about online therapy, please call me at 203-450-4745 or book a free consultation.
No one develops an eating disorder because it’s fun. They are often painful, hard, and leave people feeling stuck in a cycle of doing something they know doesn’t work for them, but is the only thing that is helping them get through their life. I truly believe that people want to feel good and want to make lives that work for them, and sometimes get a little stuck in that process. I offer a way for people to start helping themselves get out of the eating disorder/disordered eating cyle and into a life that has more freedom. Therapy is a chance to discover what is not working well for you and a chance to explore options on how you are going to build a healthier and happier life for yourself.
For many people, substances start as something fun, something you do with your friends on the weekend; but for some, they will become controlling and using substances ends up causing more trouble in your life than anything else. If you have found that you are losing relationships, losing job opportunities, or getting in trouble with the law, it might be time to explore how substances are working, or rather not working in your life. I offer evidenced-based treatments for people trying to reclaim their lives and learn how to manage emotions and have fun without having to rely on substances.
The transition from adolescence to young adulthood is often difficult, you’re supposed to have it all figured out, know what you are going to be doing with the rest of your life, no longer need help from anyone, and oh yeah, have a six-figure job and you can pay all your bills. That’s often now how it works; we are constantly told we’re doing it wrong if our lives don’t look like that perfect insta-story or snapchat. Not knowing what the hell you are doing is completely normal! Therapy can be a great non-judgmental environment to start figuring out this transition and what you would like your life to look like, and better yet, how you’re going to achieve it!
