Who can benefit from online counseling, or telemental health?
- Clients in remote areas with limited access to therapists.
- Home bound individuals, whether due to physical limitations or mental health concerns (i.e. agoraphobia and social anxiety). Online counseling may be the stepping stone needed before becoming an ongoing, in-office client.
- Public figures or clients needing additional privacy. Online counseling eliminates the chance of running into someone in the waiting room for your session.
- Those in a time or financial crunch. Online counseling saves time and travel expenses, allowing you to schedule a session during your busy day while remaining at home or work.
- Existing clients who may be moving elsewhere in Kansas but would like to continue therapy services with Amanda, or may be unable to attend their in-office session due to illness, work schedule, or an unexpected event (i.e. no transportation).
- Clients needing specialized anxiety treatment offered by Amanda Petrik, LCPC, which cannot always be found by a general therapist in your area.
