In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, PVD Psychological Associates is doing our part to practice social distancing so we can flatten the curve and protect public health.
We have always prided ourselves on offering online therapy/teletherapy to clients in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and New York. We offer confidential video therapy to you in the privacy of your own home, office, or other private location of your choosing. This has always been an option for therapy for clients with very busy schedules, those who had barriers to getting to sessions in person, or to individuals wanting to work with a specialist at PVD Psych while living too far away to come in to our office. We now are offering online therapy to all clients so that you can stay safe during this time.
Feeling unsure about the idea of online therapy or loving the idea of convenience and having therapy in the comfort in your own home? We have some suggestions for ways to have a successful teletherapy/online therapy session:
- Do a test run in advance and click on your personalized link for your secure, HIPAA-compliant online session.
- Make sure you are in a private space and will be free of interruptions.
- Get ready. Take a few minutes before your session to settle into a comfortable space for your session, collect your thoughts, and maybe even have your pet join you. We love to meet your furry family members and they can be comforting for you to have around.
