You may qualify for a discount if you are a health / wellness practitioner, staff / faculty at a college or university, or staff / faculty at public schools. Please ask for a discount application.

For prospective clients in Pennsylvania but outside of the Lancaster service area, video sessions may be an alternative to in-person sessions.

Meeting face-to-face has some definite therapeutic advantages. This includes helping to develop the habit of placing self-care “on the front burner” long enough to leave the house for a session. Also, meeting in person allows for more thorough communication and connection in both directions via non-verbal cues.

But sometimes it may be worth forgoing a little of that advantage in order to access some other type of therapeutic benefit, such as a specialty or a particular therapeutic relationship. For some there may not be a local option for in-person therapy at all. In those cases, remote therapy can be the best choice.

Our video therapy sessions parallel in-person sessions as closely as possible and are conducted using a HIPAA-compliant video platform.

Dr. Liz is a fully PA-licensed Clinical Psychologist with eighteen years of experience doing therapy for those experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, dissociative disorders, and many others.

~For those of limited means of any profession (including students) we also participate in Open Path, which can be used for video sessions.

~Clinical service fees and discounts are the same for video sessions as for in-office sessions.

Please contact us regarding scheduling or with any questions.

ILC&P Online Video Therapy Sessions Begin This Week for PA Clients

Thera-link mug

Beginning this week, ILC&P is expanding services to include video therapy sessions for adult clients in Pennsylvania who are outside of our service area (Lancaster vicinity).

Video therapy sessions parallel in-person sessions as closely as possible and are conducted using a HIPAA-compliant video platform.

Clinical service fees and discounts are the same for video sessions as for in-person sessions. (For example, if someone qualifies for Open Path sessions in person, they would qualify for Open Path sessions via video therapy).

Further details will be posted, but prospective clients need not wait to contact us regarding scheduling or with any questions.

Women Online: Mental Health Risk

Unsurprisingly, research supports women’s–especially Black women’s–descriptions of their experience of online abuse:

 

 

It’s pretty hard in 2018 to avoid being online, so it can be hard to avoid abusive interactions. This can leave vulnerable people with increased depression, anxiety, and other trauma-related symptoms. Ideally, various platforms would develop better algorithms and reporting mechanisms to limit online abuse. Even more ideally, people would stop being abusive!

Failing that, you need to support your own mental health as best you can:

  • Be mindful of how much time you spend on social media. Take breaks!
  • Find supportive groups / circles / allies to focus on
  • Find supportive, helpful media sources and check in regularly
  • Develop a free “block” or “mute” hand – you don’t owe others your energy, attention, or explanations!
  • Document any threats or threatening communications before they are removed, and report abuse
  • Know that you are NOT crazy–it really is bad!–and you are not alone ❤
