Now that telehealth psychology is available by video or phone, it can help when social or physical distancing keeps people apart. In these stressful times, the good news is that teletherapy is so convenient while working from home, without taking time off and driving. Treatment is more private, confidential, and accessible.
To begin with, every client should expect to have their story understood and to be coached on moving toward their goals. From that starting point, evidence-based, step-by-step therapy can be effective for challenges like anxiety, panic, depression, and troublesome behavior, often in less time than you would expect. A toolbox to improve mental and behavioral health can help along with therapy.
My clinical psychology PhD from George Mason University was backed by a neuroscience doctorate from the University of Chicago, followed by research and teaching medical and graduate students in neuroscience as an Associate Professor at the George Washington University School of Medicine & Health Sciences. This unique background enhances my understanding of how the mind and brain affect people's well-being.
I have published and blogged in Psychology Today, The Scientist, The Atlantic, and the Medical Educator on dealing with stressors, treatment advances, parenting challenges, international well-being, and technology in mental health.
