Frequently Asked Questions

about therapy for young adults

Online therapy, also known as teletherapy, online counseling, and virtual therapy, is the delivery of psychotherapy via a modern video platform that’s confidential and secure. 

There are so many benefits to online therapy. Access to quality counseling services expands beyond a confined office space. Geographic location does not have to be a limiting factor in your search for a therapist you feel safe with and can trust to guide you through your mental health journey. 

Don’t settle for anyone just because they are available at a certain location. Therapy is a vulnerable process, and it’s so important to find someone you can trust and feel comfortable with.

Maybe you’re too overwhelmed and overcommitted to even think about calculating travel time or rearranging your schedule to commute to therapy. Or maybe medical or mental health matters make it complicated. Professionals and students can prioritize their mental health despite busy schedules. 

Online therapy gives you the flexibility of taking care of your mental health from the comfort of your home, office, or car.

We provide online therapy in the states of District of Columbia, New York, and New Jersey.

If you have out-of-network benefits, your insurance may be able to reimburse you for approximately 50%-80% of each session after the out-of-network deductible is met.

Out-of-network psychotherapy coverage varies by carrier and policy. It can be confusing, but we’re here to help! If you aren’t sure whether or not you have out-of-network benefits, we can check for you. Just email your insurance card and date of birth to 

Meeting consistently and stably on a weekly basis will help build safety and trust, which is essential for the work to progress on a deeper level. Biweekly sessions impact the effectiveness of therapy. 

Often, meeting less frequently results in a ‘catch up’ type of session and does not allow for the time, space, and emotional capacity needed to address what goes on beneath the surface.

Depending on the level of our work, there are also times when meeting two or more times a week is appropriate, and that will always come from us talking and making that decision together.

Therapy can last any time between a year to many more, as long as you are still progressing from our work. The length of therapy depends on what you want and need, and what you want/need can be fluid and dynamic. 

Healing and personal growth is not strict or predictable. You can start off by wanting to address something very specific (e.g. “I want to feel less anxious”), but through our work together could realize a deeper meaning to these anxious symptoms (e.g. “I feel anxious because I am terrified of intimacy” to “I’ve had very familiar experiences of being emotionally suffocated when I was close to people”). Realizing these deeper long-standing issues may then shape the focus and length of treatment. 

Regardless of why you are seeking therapy and how long you hope to be in treatment, it is important to remember that your thoughts and input are invaluable to me, and the pace and length of treatment will always be a collaborative discussion.

Anyone who wants a space to explore and discover more about themselves can benefit from therapy. If you’re unsure, try asking yourself these questions:

  • Am I content with the way I live my life?
  • Is the way I live myself and relate to others congruent with what I authentically value , feel, and want?
  • Are there areas of my life or self-development that I feel stuck in?
  • Have I been trying the same things over and over again to feel better, expecting different results, but still feeling stagnant?

You may not need to know the full answer to these questions to try a few sessions. Sometimes, mulling this over aloud with a therapist can help you sort out your thoughts and answers. That’s also part of the therapy process!
