Do you feel more comfortable attending therapy at home?
Since COVID19, are you still hesitant to meet in a therapy office?
Is your schedule so busy, you can’t imagine driving out to therapy?
With everything going on do you still need someone to talk to, to help navigate your feelings?
Are you not quite comfortable coming into a therapist’s office yet?
You’re Not the Only One
The past few months have disrupted a lot of people’s lives. We went from living our “norm” to suddenly finding ourselves worried if we will keep our jobs, how to deal with the kids adjusting to virtual learning, and how to keep everyone in our family from getting sick. There have been so many changes in your everyday routine, that there are times you feel stressed, overwhelmed, mentally exhausted, and questioning what the future holds . While several months have passed since we were quarantined, it’s not uncommon to feel as though you’re still processing everything that has happened.
You may still be adjusting to your new work routine or accepting that you can’t see your friends and family like you used to. Perhaps your kids aren’t handling not being able to go to school or see their friends very well either, which is impacting you. While you may not feel quite comfortable coming into the office yet, you can still get the help you need.
Online Therapy Can Provide You The Support You Need
You may feel so overwhelmed with life right now and the sudden changes that you can’t imagine carving time into your calendar to go to therapy.
Or maybe the idea of a one on one therapy session is still a little intimidating. Whatever is causing your hesitation, we have a solution that will make therapy more comfortable, calming, and accessible to you. Similar to our in person sessions, you will begin online therapy with a consultation so we can learn more about you, answer any questions you have, and help you get over any initial hesitation you may have. From there, our specialized counselors will go above and beyond to provide a space where you feel comfortable opening up and expressing your feelings.
Here at Friends In Transition Counseling we do our best to ensure that whether you are online or in person, you feel connected to your therapist. We are careful about creating a noise-free, distract free environment so that our sessions are 100% focused on you and your needs. This means that we have chosen reliable and confidential platforms to meet (such as Zoom and Google Meet), we are camera-ready but judgement free and always have good lighting so that we can see one another. We also know that life is rather unpredictable right now so we are prepared to pivot to phone or other methods of communication if technology doesn’t cooperate.
Here’s what we promise: The care we provide in person and online is tailored to meet you where you are and help you get the relief and restoration you desire.
For our clients who experience trauma and other mood dysregulation, our therapists are trained to assist you with strategies to keep you grounded and safe in an online therapeutic space.
You May Still Have Some Questions About Online Therapy
Is online therapy as effective?
Research shows that online therapy is an effective treatment. In fact it can be more convenient because it can be done from the comfort of your own home. If you feel like you need to talk to someone now, why continue to put it off if you don’t have to? Online therapy is a great alternative, and once we feel it is safe to meet face to face again, you are welcome to join us for your session in our office!
Can I do Couples Therapy online?
Of course! We offer Individual Counseling, Couples Therapy, Family Therapy, and Teen Counseling online.

You hate to see your kid in distress. When your child is anxious, as the parent, you want to soothe them. While this behavior might be innocent at first, it can snowball. You might find yourself limiting their growth down the road. If you’re the parent to a child with chronic anxiety, learning to help them manage stress on their own will prepare them for emotional regulation as an adult.
The holidays can be an especially tough challenge when you’re coping with grief. As everyone around you comes together to celebrate during a season of joy, you’re feeling the weight of a lost loved one. You’re probably anxious and frustrated that no one seems to understand what it’s like when you have a missing piece of your family.
Every day, over 300 people are shot on average in the United States. After mass shootings happen, they remain in the news cycle for months or even years. More and more children are being exposed to gun violence either directly or indirectly, via social media, news outlets, and conversations at home and school.
You see it on television and in conversations with friends: the advice, as soon as someone is arguing with their spouse, is to “go to couples therapy.” But what about other relationships? You might have issues with your parents, siblings, friends, and even coworkers.
The conversation about race in America is becoming more visible and more important each day. The killing of unarmed Black people by police has brought racial issues to the forefront. If you’re not a person of color, it’s on you to listen and learn about race and racism for yourself.
We might not realize it, but the way we learn to form relationships in childhood affects us throughout our lives. While some people have been taught from a young age that they can feel trust and safe in a relationship, others struggle to feel this way.
The pandemic didn’t just affect our physical health across the world. It’s had a profound effect on our mental health. Even though we’re emerging from the more intense restrictions, you still might be experiencing burnout by how difficult parenting became.
Hollywood has normalized toxic relationships. Movies have glorified toxic and controlling behaviors by making them seem desirable. We’ve all seen scenes where the couple’s knock-down-drag-out fight turns into passionate kissing.
PTSD flashbacks can be terrifying. When something triggers your past trauma, it can be hard to feel in control of yourself. Learning more about your flashbacks and how they affect you can help you process them in the future.
Americans are living in scary times. We’re overwhelmed with news stories of horrific mass shootings, and parents and kids are understandably scared. Surveys show increases in teen anxiety about school shootings.
