We spend our lives trying to figure out where we fit. What kind of job should I pursue? Who should I marry? Should I have kids? Should I move? These questions often lead to change, and figuring out how to adjust to change is hard.

Maybe you have recently moved to the United States and are trying to adapt to the culture. Maybe you feel ostracized from those closest to you and are trying to reestablish your identity. Maybe you feel burned out from working long hours and are wondering if this is your desired quality of life. If you are unable to care for yourself because you feel worried about a situation in your life, we are here to help.

Change and uncertainty can produce various symptoms:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Emotional Detachment
  • Loss of interest
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Social Isolation

You are important, and we want to help you understand your feelings so you can move forward with confidence.

New to online therapy?

Every time that we do something new or meet a new person, we may feel a little anxious about it. 

We don’t want that the logistics of meeting with your therapist online become a hassle or adds to the “butterflies” that you may feel already about getting started with therapy!

We use a HIPPA-compliant teletherapy platform to meet with our clients. You will need:

  • An email account.
  • Computer, tablet, or smartphone.
  • Internet through WIFI or your phone carrier data plan.
  • Patient Portal access (we help you get set with this)
  • On the day of the appointment:
    • You will use your login information to access your therapy appointment via client portal.
    • You and your therapist will make sure that you can see and hear each other clearly. Occasional “glitches” will be inevitable, usually, they can be resolved by logging off and back on.  
    • You and your therapist will also discuss a back-up platform for Teletherapy if needed. At CEPS, we use Google Workspace-Meet as an alternative when our regular platform gets glitchy.
