Online Therapy for the Triad, Triangle, and All of North Carolina
Has abuse from a past or current relationship left you feeling worthless, ashamed, or unwanted?
Have you lost motivation to do things you used to enjoy? Have you isolated yourself from family and friends?
Are anxiety and panic attacks getting in the way of healthy sleep and personal peace?
We often try to manage life on our own, but it is exhausting juggling all the responsibilities we carry with grief, constant worry, or depression. Pain can be ignored while we focus on our goals and daily tasks. Yet instead of going away, the sadness or anxiety only gets worse.
The truth is that you are not alone. Everyone experiences stress and hardship. Seeking help does not mean you are weak. On the contrary, it takes strength to be vulnerable with someone else and begin the healing process.
The good news is that becoming mentally and emotionally healthy is very accessible and convenient through online counseling. From the comfort of your own home, you can gain the tools you need to find enjoyment in life and build meaningful relationships.
Most People Need Help Developing a Healthy Life
While forming a connection with a therapist online might seem strange at first, research shows that both online and in-person counseling is effective in improving mental health for individuals, families, and couples. Our sessions are HIPAA compliant, so your personal health information will be kept confidential. Our therapists are trained experts in the areas where you are seeking help, so whether you are dealing with trauma or anxiety, we have a professional who can help you set goals and take measurable steps towards greater peace. You can even schedule a free phone consultation first, to ask questions and find out more about the member of our team you are interested in working with.
Benefits of Online Therapy
Online counseling is available across the state of North Carolina; so, whether you’re a student at Appalachian State or UNCW, or employed in Charlotte or the RTP, you can get the help you need. Our therapists work varying hours Monday – Friday, and most offer evening appointments for added flexibility.
Therapy will happen at your pace. We understand that aspects of your story are painful and take time to share. For those recovering from past trauma or emotional abuse, Lauren would be a good fit to help you heal from the lies you have believed about yourself and the anxiety and depression that has resulted from your experience. She is trained in EMDR, which is an evidence-based tool for desensitizing negative events in your life. Nate would be an excellent resource for those stationed at Fort Liberty or Camp Lejeune, as he has worked with active military or veterans for over 15 years.
Accessing online therapy is simple. We will send you a secure link to begin your 50-minute session; you can use a smartphone, tablet, or laptop. We recommend you choose a quiet, private space in the location of your choice with a reliable internet connection. Without navigating a commute or finding childcare, receiving the tools to help you live the life you’ve always wanted has never been easier.
3 Myths Related to Online Counseling
“Going to online counseling means there is something wrong with me.”
Life is too hard to do alone. 100% of humans experience stress, emotional pain, and have conflict in their relationships. You are normal. Online therapy is beneficial because instead of holding in what is causing you distress, you are bringing it into the open, which is the only way you can heal. You will be surprised how much lighter you feel after speaking with a compassionate therapist who is trained to listen, look for patterns of thinking and behavior that are not serving you, and equip you with tools to help you experience freedom and healing.
“I have family and friends who I can talk to – online therapy isn’t necessary for me.”
While it is important to have a network of emotionally supportive friends and family, online counseling can be an additional layer of support that is equally beneficial. Have you ever shared something you’re going through with a friend, and you get advice that is not particularly helpful? Perhaps your friend inadvertently dismisses your feelings by responding like, “it will be okay, you worry too much.” Seeing a professional therapist offers guaranteed confidentiality and support from someone who is not a part of your day-to-day life. Sessions are a safe space, free from judgment, so there is no need to filter true thoughts and feelings. Therapists don’t tell you what to do but assist you in setting goals and work at your pace to achieve them. Their training and experience working with a variety of specialties makes them ready to help or provide a referral if necessary.
“I’ve been to counseling before, and it didn’t work. Why should I try online counseling again?”
Counseling is rarely a “one and done” experience. We have different needs at different times in our lives. Going to college, losing a loved one, experiencing trauma, or navigating relational challenges bring up new thoughts, emotions, and ways of coping. Just because you’ve been to counseling before doesn’t mean you cannot return in the future. If you had a negative experience with your first therapist, it is possible that they weren’t a good fit for your needs at the time. It’s important to find a counselor who is empathetic and also has experience with your particular concern, i.e. anxiety or depression. We offer a free 15-minute phone consultation, so you are welcome to ask questions and make sure you feel a connection with one of our therapists before you schedule a session.
What if I Don’t Get Better After Online Therapy?
Maybe a better question to ask is, “what happens if I do nothing?” When we bury our pain or try to manage our anxiety and depression on our own, our symptoms tend to increase, not decrease. What would your life look like if you were free from worrying about your future? If you had trustworthy relationships? If you woke up well-rested and motivated to do the things you enjoy again?
At Lime Tree Counseling, our counselors are not only educated and experienced to work with your particular concern; they are also compassionate and non-judgmental. Your session will be a safe space to talk, ask questions, and grow healthier.
