Is online therapy effective?

Recent research has established that online therapy is as effective, and sometimes, more effective than in-person therapy.
Online sessions work much the same way as traditional therapy sessions.
In the online face-to-face sessions, I provide a caring, nonjudgmental, and safe space, and utilize the same therapeutic interventions as in in-person sessions.

Online therapy allows us to stay home and stay safe during the ongoing pandemic. Other benefits include the comfort and convenience of meeting from your own home, or other private place, without having to deal with transportation, or taking time off work.
