And no stress trying to be on time because you can conveniently log in from your phone, computer, iPad, etc. When you are consistent with your treatment, you are more likely to reach your goals and be able to make progress on your treatment goals. It can be overwhelming and challenging to make the time to focus on yourself. However, online therapy becomes convenient and simple. Take out the anxiety and stress of attending sessions by committing to online anxiety therapy instead. 

Thorough intake assessment for Therapy for Anxiety

When you sign up for online anxiety therapy, your first session will include a thorough intake assessment. Before your session, your assigned therapist will review your paperwork. This will have been completed after you have scheduled your appointment. This assessment will review your goals for therapy. In addition to exploring reasons and times in which your anxiety increases. We will begin to process when your anxiety began. And lastly, there will be time for you and your licensed therapist to learn more about each other.

Our licensed therapists understand that one hour will not uncover everything there is to know about you and your anxiety, but it is a great place to start. During your intake assessment (and throughout your anxiety treatment) we take a collaborative approach, meaning that we want to hear what is working and not working for you. At the end of your intake assessment, your trained and licensed therapist will have a better understanding when it comes to creating your treatment plan.

Using Research Based Therapy Treatments 

Our online licensed therapists will use a research based therapy treatment when it comes to helping you reach your goal of managing your anxiety. Our online therapists will pull interventions from different treatment methods such as emotionally focused therapy, solution focused therapy, narrative therapy, mindfulness based therapy, client centered therapy, feminist therapy, and EMDR

 

You can feel confident in knowing that your licensed therapist will be using research based techniques when helping you reach your goals and will be able to tailor these interventions to meet you where you are. We understand that every client’s experience is their own experience and with the help of your intake assessment and first few sessions, your therapist will be able to make a professional decision on which interventions can help you.

You may be thinking, “I already know when this happens, why would this be helpful?”. Well, we work on finding ways to identify, manage, or overcome triggers. In addition, we also understand that when you feel helpless and overwhelmed, it can take over your life and your day.

Some healthy coping mechanisms may include challenging cognitive narratives, implementing behavioral responses, using different items to help ground you, learning meditation techniques, and more.
