Now offering Teletherapy services!

In the modern age, where everything is being done via the web, psychologists are now offering individual therapy sessions via the web/phone.

What does this mean for our patients and the average consumer???

Studies as far back as 10 years ago have demonstrated CBT delivered via web/phone as equally effective as face-to-face treatment. Treating clinicians and patients were also measured on the quality of their relationship, which statistically did not differ from face-to-face sessions.

It is important to note that these studies focused on the delivery of CBT (evidence-based treatment that focuses on independent skill development) via the web/phone.

We receive calls from across the country, especially in parts of Maryland and Virginia (DC is relatively small) that cannot get access to services. Please be informed of what is available to you and how to reach out to get the most evidence-based treatment for your anxiety and/or depression.

Have a wonderful Halloween and a good time facing your fears!

Author:

I am a clinical psychologist with approximately 15 years of experience assessing and treating anxiety and depressive disorders in young children, adolescents, young adults, adults and geriatric populations. I completed a 6-year predoctoral training award at the National Institute of Mental Health, and postdoctoral training at the Anxiety Disorders Center at the Institute of Living/Hartford Hospital. From my clinical and research experiences, I have come to see the struggles of many families deciding when to pursue professional help and feeling very lost in the process. I will address several mental health issues that will help educate and empower my readers to make better mental health decisions for themselves. Welcome to my blog!
