Anyone ever do online therapy?
I see BetterHelp has great reviews but it’s expensive. Just curious if anyone has tried anything like this.

I don’t recommend it for actual psychotherapy. If someone is struggling with life issues and wants some counseling, it might be a good option. For diagnosis and treatment if any serious mental health issues, face to face is extremely important.

I’m already seeing a psychiatrist and getting meds from them

Haven't tried it because of the price.

I still recommend seeing a psychotherapist in person if possible. A lot of therapy involves observation on the therapists part and sometimes role playing and/or modeling which cannot be done effectively in another format.

Not sure where you live but my therapist in Baton Rouge does “teletherapy” (FaceTime) with me since I moved out of state. It was daunting to consider starting over with someone new after years of working together and she knowing my family history down to minute details. Anyway, you might call some places in Baton Rouge because she told me she’s having to do this with all of her patients for the near future and I would guess so are all the others. Worth a try, don’t let this isolation break you. Many, many people who were already struggling and/or fragile are having a very hard time. I’m glad you asked and reply to me if you have more questions, we are here to help!

Does online shopping count?

Thanks. I’m in Chicago, where therapy is very expensive. I did get a free week of BetterHelp. I’ll probably try a couple of weeks. Not sure how I feel about my therapist but I think you can very quickly change therapists if you want.
