is therapy right for me?
Seeking out therapy is an individual choice. There are many reasons why people come to therapy. Sometimes it is to deal with long-standing issues. Other times it is in response to unexpected changes in one's life, such as a divorce. Some adults seek the advice of a therapist as they pursue their own personal exploration and growth. Some parents may seek therapy for their children to give them a space where they can speak openly about concerns. Other parents may seek a therapist to address their children's problematic behaviors. Therapy can help address many types of issues including depression, anxiety, behavioral concerns, stress management, and general life transitions. Therapy provides long-lasting benefits and support, giving you the tools you need to overcome whatever challenges you face.
WHAT IS COGNITIVE BEHAVIOR THERAPY (CBT)?
Cognitive Behavior Therapy is known to be the most effective, standardized method of therapy to address multiple psychological concerns. It involves creating specific goals, an individualized plan to reach those goals, and active movement toward symptom reduction both within sessions and in between sessions. With CBT, you and Dr. King work together to monitor and actively ensure progress is made and goals are reached.
HOW CAN I TELL IF ONLINE THERAPY IS RIGHT FOR ME?
Although online therapy is a different experience than sitting in the same office, most people report they are still able to feel connected. Some people feel even more comfortable addressing important but painful issues from an environment in which they are already comfortable. The best way to determine if online therapy is right for you is to try it out. You may schedule a free 10-minute online consultation to briefly discuss your reasons for seeking therapy. You can then determine if you are comfortable continuing online, in Dr. King's office, or both.
