Advantages of Working with a Zoom Therapist in Manhattan NYC
Commuting. Getting through traffic in Manhattan can be extraordinarily stressful! Many patients prefer to skip the commute and save time and energy by accessing therapy from home.
Comfort. Take off your shoes and brew a pot of tea, sit in your comfiest chair and then tune in. Being at home can be much more relaxing than being in an office setting, and relaxation often leads to better communication. Clients who have social anxiety may find the thought of online therapy from home. much more attractive than having to interact with staff, people in the waiting room, etc. Teenagers and children often prefer online therapy, too, as it helps them to feel less vulnerable and self-conscious.
Convenience. With online therapy, you can tune in from wherever you are, whether that’s your workplace lunchroom or poolside from a holiday in Florida. Your appointment will always begin on time, and you’ll never be double-booked. Any prescriptions will be sent to a pharmacy of your choosing and you can pick them up when you have time.
Mobility. Those with reduced mobility may find it difficult to travel to appointments. Online therapy is more convenient for them.
