Empowered Change Counseling Services was created to make excellent therapy more accessible across Ohio! So often a barrier to seeking therapy is having to find a location close by your home or work, then find a time that fits for driving to and from. Working through telehealth is a dream for me and my clients! My clients are able to have their favorite coffee mug, spot in their home, and maybe one of their favorite pets with them. I have noticed a significant increase in the depth of my trauma sessions due to this increased comfort. So often our pets and personal spaces, bring us comfort and add to the therapeutic space.
So often there are questions about telehealth and the ways to adapt trauma and couples therapy through this medium. EMDR is able to be adapted to include visual and audio stimulation. Couple's therapy clients are able to do their session from separate locations if needed, perfect for my client's with busy schedule demands. Many of my client's benefit from the decreased time commitment of being able to do their sessions without a commute to and from an office.
Consultations are a great way to determine fit with any potential counselor. I offer free 15 minute consultations to every potential client. Every client should find the exact fit for what they are looking for. No matter, which direction you choose to go may you feel empowered to make the best decision for yourself and relationship!
