As the pandemic drags on, it can really take a toll on us. Physically, mentally, and especially emotionally. We’re being impacted in ways we likely have never experienced before, and the need for effective therapy is all the more essential.
One of the biggest silver linings of the pandemic has been advances in the provision of telehealth, also called telepsychology, online therapy, or video therapy. When COVID began, I started offering therapy sessions through a secure video platform to protect the health of my clients. While skeptical at first, a year later I am thoroughly convinced that what the rapidly growing body of research tells us is true: Telehealth is every bit as effective as meeting in person.

Often couples say that they experience the same troubling patterns with their partners over and over; although the topics may vary, the end result - of conflict and disconnection - seems the same. It’s so frustrating not to be able to get your message across and have your partner understand what you need. Sometimes communicating, itself, seems risky – will it lead to more disconnection and distress? Despite your deep love and desire for your partner, it can feel that you are miles apart. If you’ve experienced the same thing, you may wonder why it happens as well as how you can get out of those cycles and back to smooth sailing with the one you love.
Effective January 1, 2022, a ruling went into effect called the "No Surprises Act" which requires practitioners to provide a "Good Faith Estimate" for out-of-network care. Although the Act was targeted towards hospitals where there are often multiple practitioners with different insurance affiliations, independent psychologists and mental health providers must also comply. This notice is designed to inform you of your rights. Please do not hesitate to follow up with your provider if you have any questions about how the information applies to your care.
