Yes, online therapy is effective. In fact for some people it is even more effective than in person session. Particularly for people who have strong protectors that keep them from wanting to show feelings in the presence of another human. There is a way in which having a screen between the you and me can open up a space for emotions to come forth easier. As well, I have found I can continue to be attuned to you and hold the therapeutic space in a similar way I hold the space for in person sessions. As you will be at home, you will have the comfort of your own belongings, which can create more relaxation.
However, with online therapy it is important you are mindful of your own environment. You will have to take control of going to a room that is away from others in your household. You want to provide yourself with the privacy needed to be open and honest with yourself and me. You will want to find a space free from distractions, shut off your phone, be away from others, to honor your therapy time.
