Online Therapy

Online Therapy Seattle

Online Therapy Seattle - Anchor Light Therapy CollectiveFor those of you who cannot reliably make it into the clinic for therapy, we offer secure online sessions for individual therapy only. Online therapy is a great way to access the treatment you need from the comfort of your home – or wherever you might be.

Choosing to engage in therapy is a very positive step towards a healthy, happy, and balanced life.

Online therapy is just as effective as in-person individual counseling for a range of issues, including:

Stress, anxiety, and depression

Burnout and overwhelm

Negative thoughts

Trauma and PTSD

Relationship issues

Grief and loss

Eating disorders

Addictions and substance abuse

Change of relationship status

Change of job/career

Don’t let the constraints of your busy lifestyle prevent you from getting the help you need.

Online therapy is an excellent option if:

You travel a lot for work

You live too far away from the clinic

You have a challenging or busy schedule that doesn’t allow you to get away for therapy

You are more comfortable and at ease in your own environs

You have mobility issues

You do not drive
