Trust is something that evolves. Whether you’re learning to trust a friend or an intimate partner, it doesn’t happen overnight. In the same way, the act of trusting a mental health professional isn’t instantaneous. It is a process. When you’re talking to an online therapist in the privacy of a place where you feel safe, it can make a world of difference. Teletherapy can be advantageous – you’re on your turf talking to somebody where you feel like you can be yourself. That’s something unique about online counseling.
