Online and Remote Care
Hello! Thank you for visiting. If you are looking for online counseling while in Argentina, I can be of help. I am an argentine-american licensed psychologist helping individual and couples via Telehealth sessions. Telehealth is also referred as «Online Counseling», «Distance Therapy», «Telebehavioral Health», «e-therapy». I will use Telehealth to refer to all of the above.
I offer Telehealth treatment for mental health symptoms as well as support for adjustment, growth, and various forms of individual and relationship care. I can be of help in the treatment of depression, anxiety, impairing distress, trauma, difficulties sleeping and regulating rhythms, and other conditions that affect functioning and wellbeing. Some clients seek support, not because of specific symptoms, but because they want support navigating challenging circumstances or to start positive change. Please take a look at the other sections of this site for more information. My work with couples relies on creating conditions for constructive and caring dialogue that allows partners to collaborate and re-approach complex issues affecting them. My own experience as a bicultural person has been helpful in supporting bicultural couples find ways of relating and navigating cultural differences.
About the format. Telehealth sessions contain much of the same ingredients as face-to-face sessions. We agree on a meeting time, engage in hones and focused conversation about what is important to you, establish goals, use tools and resources from psychology and change science, and rely on a relationship of trust, care, and professionalism. I will be glad to meet to discuss your needs and any questions you may have.
Effectiveness and Convenience. Telehealth counseling and therapy work. In the US, professional mental health organizations, including insurance panels, the American Psychological Association, and the American Counseling Association, consider Telehealth counseling and therapy an established and reliable service delivery format with increasing popularity. My experience is consistent with this positive trend since I started working with clients remotely in 2012. Telehealth sessions are not just for people living in remote areas. For local clients, the benefit may include: no commute, sessions can be more easily accommodated to a busy schedule, and there is no need to leave the immediate environment. About 3o% of my local, in-office clients combine face-to-face sessions with online ones as logistical option when traveling or when coming to the office is not possible.
Safety & Effectiveness. Safety is most important. I only work with clients who I believe I can help and can benefit from my work. I don’t recommend Telehealth counseling when there are safety risks, like suicidal thoughts or life threatening experiences, self-harm, violence to self or others, intense dysfunction, dangerous impulsivity, or any other form of behavior that can pose a risk to you or others. I pay close attention to the helpfulness of our work, so I will always strive to secure the best conditions for our work, whether online or in person. For Telehealth sessions to work, privacy and control over interferences is necessary. During our meeting, we both are fully and exclusively focused on our conversation. I will help you understand how you can engage in Telehealth sessions effectively. Let me know your questions any time.
I’m sure there is plenty more to say, but I hope this is enough for a start. Please let me know of any questions or thoughts. I’ll be glad to speak and be a resource.
I look forward to the opportunity.
