Who doesn't want to do therapy in their pajamas?
While the pandemic has had devastating impacts on our world, it also normalized and transformed our ability as therapists to provide mental health services via Telehealth. We've adapted and realized how great it is that access to support increased significantly. Anxiety and depression have skyrocketed across the board and burn-out is at an all time high and it's more important than ever to get support.
Telehealth is therapy done via video services (such as Zoom) or over the phone. If you've never done Telehealth before, there is some adjustment, but for most it only takes one session to feel just as comfortable as in-person sessions. For those who do not like Telehealth or for whom it is logistically just not a good fit, I do offer in-person services in Anchorage.
