It’s such a challenge being a human on planet earth, and even harder when you need a little help and don’t know how to find it! Not sure how to find an online therapist in New York City? It can be downright overwhelming with so many experts and options. I'm a New Yorker, and I get it! You’re very busy with work, social and home life. You travel frequently with demands and a schedule that makes it challenging to schedule regular therapy appointments in an office. You and your partner have schedules with moving parts—you’re rarely in the same room together. Busy New Yorkers frequently begin therapy but then discontinue because of multiple cancellations and appointment change requests. It becomes a barrier to treatment to feel as if you can’t commit to regular psychotherapy session times. Just when you get some momentum, you have deadlines or you have to travel, and then you’re embarrassed to reach out to the therapist to reengage, so you begin a new therapist search.
It can also be challenging to find a good therapist in New York. And, even more of a challenge to finally find a “good fit” for you to begin the process of opening up to a stranger and discussing concerns such as anxiety, depression, trauma resolution, a crisis, feeling “stuck” or relationship challenges. These are but a few of the concerns that many busy, professional New Yorkers struggle with. What follows are some helpful tips to guide you in the process of finding a therapist who works online, doing virtual therapy, otherwise known as teletherapy, telemedicine, telehealth, video chat, to name but a few terms.
