Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about online therapy:

How does online therapy work? What if I’m not internet-savvy?

Our video program is very easy to use. At the time of your appointment, just click on the link that your therapist sends you, type in your name, and your therapist will join the video session shortly thereafter. If you need to do a phone session, just let your therapist know in advance so they know to call you at the time of your appointment.

But isn’t therapy supposed to be in person? Does it work online?

Online and telephone therapy is not new. People have been using it for many years. There is research that shows that online therapy can be as effective as in-person therapy.

What if I don’t have a private place to talk in my home?

Great question. With so many people at home right now, this is a common problem. Some helpful solutions:

  • Use headphones or earbuds.
  • Go into your car.
  • Do walk-and-talk therapy by wearing earbuds or headphones and walking through your neighborhood. This also provides you with an opportunity to get out in the fresh air, which is helpful for your mental health.
  • Ask your therapist to schedule your appointment at a time when the other people in your house will be working, out for a walk, or asleep.

    Making Sure You Are a Human:

    • woman with volunteer t-shirt putting soup from a ladle in a cup

      Thanksgiving brings up conflicting emotions for many of us. While it’s certainly a pleasure to have time to commune with family and friends, reflect on what we’re thankful for, and prepare for the winter holidays, the celebration can feel bittersweet when we think about the holiday’s colonial roots.

    • You are not alone

      October 10th was World Mental Health Day! This international holiday focuses on raising awareness about mental health issues and increasing access to mental health care. We at Serenity Solutions are incredibly passionate about these issues, and in honor of World Mental Health Day, we’re going to debunk some common myths about mental health.

    • multiracial hands in shape of heart

      When the stay-at-home orders began in March, many of our clients began talking about feelings of guilt. They were acutely aware of all that they had to be grateful for. This led to them feeling guilty for their negative emotions and emotional struggles resulting from the new changes in their lives.

    • multiracial hands connected with a quote underneath

      Are you feeling uncomfortable? The death of George Floyd and the resulting protests, riots, and looting, and calls to action have led to a lot of strong emotions. These feelings range from anger and rage to sadness, fear, and confusion to hope and can feel uncomfortable.

    • woman with eyes closed with sun on face with words Just Breathe

      I just wanted to check in and see how you are. It’s been about a month since many cities and states have had stay-at-home orders, including Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and the whole state of New Jersey. Adjusting to and coping with this new normal can feel really difficult.

    • "Having compassion for yourself means that you honor and accept your humanness."-Kristin Neff quote over fall leaves

      In big letters under the magazine title on Parents magazine are the words “Imagine Kindness”. In a much smaller icon under the giant “P” for People, it says “the kindness issue”. Two totally different types of magazines, yet they are both focusing on kindness.

    • adult and child hugging in front of christmas tree

      Over the past few weeks, there has been a lot of discussion about spending time with family during the holidays. I wish I could say that all of this talk was positive and that everyone was looking forward to their holiday visits with excitement and hope, but unfortunately, this was not the case.

      This week marks Mental Illness Awareness Week, a week dedicated to increasing awareness and knowledge of mental health issues to help decrease stigma. This campaign, organized by the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), encourages people to learn more, see people for who they are (not their illness) and advocate for equal care.
