Online Therapy In Seattle

For those who cannot reliably make it into our Queen Anne office suite 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. People opt for online therapy for any number of reasons: perhaps they do not drive, they have mobility issues, they’re not comfortable in unfamiliar environments, they travel for work, or perhaps the pandemic is making it difficult or impossible for them to go places.

 

Don’t let the constraints of this pandemic—or your busy lifestyle—prevent you from getting the help you want and need. 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

IS ONLINE THERAPY RIGHT FOR YOU?

Despite its benefits and wide availability, online therapy is not right for everybody. We offer online therapy under the right circumstances, but there are some caveats and guidelines to which we must adhere. These requirements have to do with your privacy, our compliance, and the success and efficiency of the therapeutic process.

 

Ultimately, the goal of therapy is to make you feel better, so it’s essential to ensure we remain within the guidelines. Some things to know about online therapy:

We offer online therapy throughout
Washington State only.

 

Online therapy is for individuals as well as couples.

 

Therapy sessions are conducted over a
HIPAA-compliant telehealth platform and are
completely secure and private.

 

You must access online therapy from
a secure and reliable connection.

 

You must have a quiet, private place to
access your session; many clients who do not have privacy in their homes are able to have sessions from the quiet comfort of their car.

 

Prior to your session we will send you a link to connect with our telehealth platform. All you have to do is click the link. No need to download anything to your phone or computer.

If you have any questions or concerns about these or any other aspects of treatment, please connect with us directly so that we can help.

HOW DOES ONLINE THERAPY WORK?

From an Anchor Light perspective, online therapy sessions are really no different from individual therapy sessions; they are conducted from a private space in our office over a secure, HIPAA-compliant connection and we do everything we can to make you feel comfortable and at-ease.

 

Maybe you’re new to our practice, or maybe you’re already engaged in therapy with one of us. Either way, you may be initially hesitant or uncomfortable with the remote aspect of online therapy. We want you to know that in our experience, folks find it easy to settle in once they allow themselves to give it a try. If you have concerns, we’d be happy to answer any questions you may have before we begin.
