Online Therapy for Residents of Fort Myers, Florida
Online therapy in Lee County, Florida
After a long day at work in Fort Myers, Florida, going to therapy might not be high on your list of priorities because you might prefer to visit Sanibel Island or Captiva Island for some relaxation. The only problem is, you might want some alone time, and these beaches are very popular. There are so many activities and tours going on in Fort Myers, it might seem impossible to get away from everything and focus on you. When you’re not at work, you might enjoy visiting the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel Island and get some much-deserved fishing in or even biking the trails for some exercise… but the thought of sitting in traffic to attend a counseling session after a stressful week is not something you look forward to. This is why online counseling might be right for you if you live in Fort Myers.
There are so many benefits of online counseling.
- Time: This one speaks for itself! Your time is so important, and when your daily responsibilities make it more difficult to squeeze time in for yourself, having the option to attend therapy virtually is a relief. You won’t have to worry about factoring in commute and arrival time because online therapy can be done anywhere you are.
- Weather: When it rains, it pours, right? Rain isn’t exactly fun to drive in when you’re sitting in traffic and trying to get to your destination. Living in Florida means having to deal with some pretty extreme heat and humidity a lot of the time, which can sometimes be draining when you’re already tired or you aren’t in the best mood. With online therapy, you don’t have to worry about the weather because you can attend your session wherever you feel most comfortable.
- Health: Not feeling your best? Don’t feel like getting out of bed? Allergies get the best of you? Maybe you caught a cold and are feeling drowsy and sluggish but still want to prioritize your mental health and don’t want to cancel your appointment. There’s no longer a need to, with virtual therapy! You can attend your session right from bed, and you don’t have to worry about using your strength to struggle on down to a physical office. Do you have any physical limitations? That’s alright, because when therapy is virtual, you don’t have to do much except click a few buttons and talk.
- Confidentiality: This is a big one. Something that a lot of clients have anxiety about is running into people they may know when they are out at a store, restaurant, or elsewhere. Maybe you don’t really want anyone you know witnessing you visiting a therapist – not that there’s anything wrong with it, but this is personal stuff, so I get it! No one you know will find out that you’re in therapy because online therapy gives you the privacy & confidentiality you need and deserve. Sessions are, of course, HIPAA compliant, just as they would be in person.
