Virtual Mental Health
That feels like In-Person
The greatest thing about tough times is that there is always a lesson. We can always find some good in what appears to be bad. During the tough Covid-19 period, we all had to make so many adjustments. The more we adjusted, the more we learned that Virtual Therapy allowed us to reach and help so many more people!! It has been such a success, we decided to keep it. Choosing Empowerment is now Virtual Therapy only.
Here are some important things to know about Virtual Therapy Services.
1. Virtual Therapists can only provide services in states where they are licensed (That's Texas and Louisiana for us).
2. Virtual therapy is NOT appropriate for some conditions and situations. (Serious Psychiatric Conditions or high crisis situations)
3. We all know how technology can sometimes fail to do what we want it to do. Be aware that this can also interfere with sessions. (lags in the video, echoes, internet issues, and don't forget security breaches and hackers).
On the other end, there are many advantages:
1. Location, Location, Location. You get to stay where you are and just turn on your laptop, phone, or tablet. No traveling to get there or back home.
2. Speaking of being at home, you are more likely to be more comfortable in your own environment?
3. You can wear your flip-flops, socks, and pants are optional (just keep the camera on the top half) lol
4. And now, most, if not all, insurance companies pay for virtual services (even if they didn't before our massive quarantine).
We see it as a WIN-WIN!!
We get to break more barriers and you get more

Mental Health and Wellness Coaching
Once you have processed the who, what, when, WHY, and where, and you have learned some skills, coaching may be the next level. Coaching involves a game plan and a guide to the living practice of what you have learned. We set goals, evaluate the best method of practice and make things happen. If something doesn't work, we come back to the table, re-evaluate and go for it again until you achieve the goals that you planned for. I am your cheerleader and accountability partner.
