Who is Online Therapy Right for?
Online therapy can be a great option for you if you’re looking for mental health support but may not have access to in-person services. It can also be beneficial for those who prefer the convenience of being able to receive treatment from the comfort of their own home.
Online therapy can be especially helpful for people who have difficulty leaving their homes due to physical or mental health issues, transportation issues, or other life circumstances. It is also useful for those who live in rural areas or places where there is limited access to mental health services. Additionally, online therapy can provide more flexibility than traditional in-person sessions, allowing individuals to receive treatment at times that are convenient for them.
Additionally, online therapy offers more flexibility in scheduling than in-person sessions, allowing you to fit therapy appointments into your busy life. Virtual therapy cuts down significantly on commute time for plenty of individuals (especially in New York) who deal with traffic on a regular basis and would like to save time. You can easily fit virtual therapy into your calendar, because its entirely predictable know how much time each session will take.
In contrast with in-person visits, the time commitment of online therapy is more predictable, concise, and less likely to be impacted by outside influences – such as traffic. Additionally, if you live in an area where quality mental health care is limited, virtual or online therapy can grant you access to a quality doctor and specialist due to its accessibility.
At Looking Glass NYC, we offer online therapy services that are tailored to meet the individual needs of our clients. Our experienced therapists use evidence-based techniques such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) to help clients address a wide range of mental health concerns including anxiety, depression, trauma, and relationship issues. We understand that everyone’s situation is unique and strive to provide personalized care that meets each person’s individual needs.
If you think online therapy might be right for you, contact us today to learn more about how we can help you reach your goals and live a healthier life.
How Online Therapy Differs from In-Person Therapy
Online therapy is a convenient way to access mental health services without having to visit a counseling center or therapist’s office.
Unlike in-person therapy, online therapy allows you to receive mental health services from the comfort of your own home or office. This can be especially beneficial for those who may have difficulty accessing traditional therapy due to physical or financial constraints.
Additionally, online therapy offers more flexibility in scheduling than in-person sessions, allowing clients to fit their appointments into their busy lives.
Another key difference between online and in-person therapy is the type of technology used. Online therapists typically use HIPAA-compliant video conferencing software, while in-person therapists rely on face-to-face interaction.
This can be beneficial for those who may feel uncomfortable with face-to-face communication, as it allows you to communicate with your therapist from a distance. Additionally, online sessions are able to provide the same level of personalized care that in-person sessions provide.
Overall, online therapy is an increasingly popular option for those seeking mental health services due to its convenience and flexibility.

What should I expect from my first therapy session?
During your first session, your therapist will ask you questions to get to know you and understand your reasons for coming to therapy. Your therapist will want to learn about your history, what’s going on with you now, and learn about what you want to get out of therapy. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask them questions about how therapy works so you know what to expect.
How long will I be in therapy for?
The amount of time therapy takes is different for each person. If you’re dealing with a short-term stressor that you want resolved, that will typically take less time than a problem you’ve been dealing with for a long while. For some, therapy is short-term, taking just a few months until they are satisfied with their progress. For others, therapy will become a part of their routine, helping them manage ongoing concerns in their life and having a safe outlet for them to explore themselves, their patterns, and understand themselves on a deeper level.
Virtual therapy: How does it work?
With the rise in virtual therapy, it makes sense to want to know more about how it works. Research shows that virtual therapy has the same benefits as therapy that takes place face-to-face. Virtual therapy is an effective way to fit therapy into your busy schedule, as it allows you to talk to your therapist in the comfort of your own home. With virtual therapy, you avoid the hurdles that can happen with face-to-face appointments, such as scheduling conflicts, traffic, and travel time. In order to make the most of your virtual session, meet with your therapist in a private space in your home and have a good internet connection.
How do I pick the right therapist for me?
You’ve decided to take that next step and start therapy, and it can feel overwhelming to decide on a therapist. That’s why we offer a complimentary consultation call with a Looking Glass Intake Coordinator to help you make an informed choice. Every therapist has different strengths and styles that they bring to sessions. When you are in the process of selecting a therapist, talk to your coordinator about what you want to get out of therapy so you can rest assured that you are matched with the right person for you. After all, therapy is all about creating a space where you feel comfortable to open up, so finding a therapist that you click with is the first step on your journey!
How do I know if therapy is working?
Starting from your first session, you and your therapist will talk about what you want to get out of therapy. You may come in with a very specific goal or you may use therapy as a space to talk about ongoing events in your life. Regardless of your therapy goals, your therapist will create a comfortable space for you to talk about how therapy is going so you are both on the same page about the process. Ultimately, you will get more out of therapy if you are willing to put more into it. Growth takes place when you are willing to reflect on yourself and take what you are learning during sessions out into the world with you. Below are a few signs of progress that clients typically note:
- You start noticing that your symptoms (anxiety, depression, panic attacks, etc.) are less frequent or intense than before.
- You’re able to function better at work, school, or in your personal relationships.
- You start to find that you have a better understanding of yourself, your feelings, and your behaviors. You’ve gained insights and are making connections that you didn’t make before.
- You might be using new coping skills that you’ve learned in therapy and they’re helping in your daily life.
- People close to you may tell you that they have noticed positive changes.
Do you accept my health insurance?
Looking Glass Psychology is Out-of-Network with health insurances. If you have an Out-of-Network or PPO insurance plan, your insurance will refund a large portion of each session, as long as you have met your Out-of-Network deductible. After each appointment, we’ll supply you with a receipt called a superbill or reimbursement form. To submit for a partial refund, simply log into your health insurance portal to enter the information listed on your superbill. If you have an Out-of-Network plan and have met your Out-of-Network deductible, your health plan will mail the partial refund in the form of a check to your home a few weeks after each appointment.
