Online Therapy for Residents of Fort Lauderdale, Florida
fter fighting traffic on I-95 on top of trying to find a place to park in downtown Fort Lauderdale do you feel stressed out just trying to think about fitting counseling into your day? Trust me I can relate. I remember driving down Broward Boulevard many times stressed out about making it to an appointment on time.
What are the benefits of online counseling?
Time Saving- By utilizing Online therapy, you will gain another hour in your day. No one wants the aggravation of driving in Ft. Lauderdale; in addition, to dealing with aggressive drivers and tourists who are lost. With online counseling, you can relax knowing you will be on time for your appointment and no longer have the hassle of dealing with traffic.
Weather- As you know living in the Sunshine State the weather is unpredictable. One minute it is sunny outside and the next it is monsoon (not literally, but you know what I mean). Think of how much easier it is to attend your online therapy session as scheduled without having to consider weather conditions. Rain is often a factor in car accidents not to mention that your commute takes SO much longer. The convenience of online therapy removes unnecessary variables that prevent you from taking care of your mental wellness.
Confidentiality- Walking into a therapist’s office can cause anxiety. Many people worry about running into someone they know in the waiting room or are concerned with friends or family seeing them in the parking lot. Online counseling makes it easier to overcome the stigma historically attached to mental health significantly. Perhaps you do not want to explain to your employer why you need to leave in the middle of the day once a week for an appointment. Online therapy gives you the flexibility to engage in a session on your lunch break (many of my clients participate in their session from the privacy of their parked vehicle). Online therapy gives you the privacy you need as counseling is conducted through a platform that is HIPAA compliant, VeriSign security seal (multiple layers of encryption), and HITRUST certified (the gold standard of security certifications in the healthcare industry).
