Tips for Online Counseling in Maryland:
Many clients actually do therapy from their cars. This is a great place to go because it is private, but mobile. You don’t need to be too far from work or home to make a “car-session” work. When you are doing therapy it is important to minimize distractions and to allow yourself to be as centered and present as possible. Make sure that you will not be interrupted by roommates, spouses, etc. For more tips on successfully participating in online therapy read Dr. Harron’s blog on the topic or see these tips from Zencare.
Therapists Offering Virtual Therapy in Maryland:
Eating disorders are a very specific type of illness in that they do require a body component in order to truly heal. However, virtual therapy can offer many benefits. If therapy feels overwhelming, it can be very helpful to do it from the comfort of your own home. If you want, you might be able to show your therapist the foods you have available in your cupboard or fridge. You would just have to rely on your memory for this if you were doing in-person therapy. At home, you can also feel more safe and secure. It might even be helpful to have your pets nearby!
Maryland Online and Hybrid Therapy for Eating Disorders
Hybrid therapy means a combination of virtual sessions and in-person sessions. For our Maryland people, this means coming in to our offices in Chevy Chase, MD. Hybrid therapy offers the best of both worlds: the in-person, body based work that cannot be done online as well as the convenience of having most therapy sessions happen as you are on the go.
Maryland Online and Hybrid Therapy for Trauma and Complex Trauma:
All Monarch Wellness therapists are required to be trauma-informed practitioners. Many are also trauma practitioners, which means that they are able to go beyond offering services in a way that acknowledges trauma into offering services that actually heal trauma. Dr. Seymour incorporates body-based work into her trauma healing, whereas Mary Blair Holden focuses on attachment and the ability to participate in relationships.
