Online Therapy in Maryland

Going to counseling is not all about the couch. Sure, in the movies, counseling often occurs with the client lying on the couch while the analyst interprets their stream of consciousness. Most in-person therapy doesn’t look like that anymore, and certainly, online therapy moves away from that image even further.

Right now, in-person therapy might not be the best choice for you. In fact, it might not even be available. New Connections Counseling Center is proud to offer online counseling sessions via video or phone. Doing counseling through a secure video platform is similar to talking to a loved one over FaceTime.

Online therapy is the use of audio and visual technology that allows real-time communication with your therapist from the comfort of your own home. People use lots of different terms -“telehealth,” “online counseling,” or “virtual therapy” – to refer to the same thing. They all refer to providing therapy over the phone or video call. These days, distanced services are critical in making mental health care accessible to clients who have difficulty reaching the office.

Online Therapy Lessens Barriers

If you are feeling depressed, anxious, or struggling in relationships, perhaps it’s time to consider starting therapy. You’re looking for high-quality, individualized counseling that meets your unique needs. New Connections Counseling Center has been providing online therapy for years. So, our therapists have experience providing online therapy. Furthermore, they understand any of the concerns or questions you may have.

The whole process can feel overwhelming – finding the right therapist, making time for appointments, and figuring out where to start, especially while in the midst of a global pandemic. At our Baltimore-based counseling center, we want to make finding a “good fit” therapist simple. We hope that our online counseling services are the answer you’ve been looking for.

Online therapy is convenient and saves you time. Perhaps you live in Baltimore or Columbia, and you just don’t have time to sit in Beltway traffic to get to a counseling appointment. With online therapy, there are no worries about parking. Instead, you can pull up our secure platform on your computer and start your counseling session from whatever private place you have found. This convenience is particularly critical for clients who have trouble getting to the office due to illness or mobility issues. Or, maybe you are just more comfortable attending counseling from the comfort of your own home.

Or, you may live on the Eastern Shore or in western Maryland. Perhaps you do not have a lot of choices when it comes to mental health services. Online therapy can also be a great option if you need a specialization that is not available where you live.

Online counseling works for many mental health issues. In fact, research indicates that you can expect to get the same results doing online therapy as in-person counseling.

Online Therapy During COVID-19

We are in a challenging time of great upheaval and uncertainty. The realities of COVID-19 have prompted people to consider online therapy more than ever before. You may be limiting your contact with others, working from home, and socially distancing. Perhaps you’re experiencing a spike in anxiety as you feel a sense of loss of control. So much uncertainty. And lots of new challenges.

You’re working from home alongside your partner and children. Or, you live alone and work from home, so you aren’t interacting with anyone in person. Maybe you’re managing remote school and unable to leave the house. Or, maybe you are going to work every day even though it doesn’t feel safe. Whatever your specific circumstances, most of us are feeling overwhelmed these days.

How Online Therapy Works at New Connections Counseling Center

Online counseling sessions are done over a secure video platform. In fact, it is much the same as in-person counseling. Prior to your scheduled session, you will be sent a unique link to access your video session. The only equipment required is the internet, a computer of some sort, and a camera and microphone. Lastly, you’ll need to find a quiet, confidential place in your home, office (or even your car) for your session.

All of the therapists at New Connections Counseling Center offer online therapy. While some people prefer in-person sessions, others enjoy the freedom of online therapy due to the safety and security of their own homes.
