Online therapy has been found to be as effective as in person therapy. In my practice, I use a HIPPA-compliant platform called Doxy.me that is easy to use and (usually) smooth. Once we get to know each other we can also use the telephone.
For our online sessions, I recommend that you find a private space (if needed, the car) where others cannot overhear what is said, and where you can sit upright.
I have a certificate in online counselling skills.
