My Approach to Helping
I help individuals dealing with anxiety, stress or trauma catch their breath. Together we will identify coping skills to handle the intense feelings and thoughts. We'll identify skills based on your interests. We will discover lessons learned and discuss how to apply those lessons in your daily life. Talking to a mental health provider gets easier after finding the right therapist and with time. Interview a few and asks questions about their style. Make an informed decision.
Here are a few answers to commonly asked questions:
Yes, parents of teens are involved in the process. Outside of parents or guardians, a release of information is required for me to speak to anyone else. Privacy is very important.
Therapy does not last forever. Some people often report some relief after 2-3 sessions. True change happens when you are able to apply the lessons outside of the therapy office. Trauma or mental health issues do not have to define your life. Growth is possible. Send me an email with any questions. You can also schedule a FREE 15-minute consultation. Everything is handled via a secure platform. This includes intake paperwork, sessions, and payments.
More Info About My Practice
Reilly Counseling is 100% online using a secure platform. I help pre-teens, teens and adults catch their breath when dealing with anxiety, stress or trauma. The challenges did not appear over night in most cases and change will take some time too. I have seen some clients for a month or 6 months. I have some clients who want to take summers off and start when school starts. Therapy requires work. You have to put some work into to see true change. It's going to be hard at times and you will learn tools to help you in the future.
The rate is $125. Privacy and confidentiality are just as important as in-person counseling. A secure video platform is used for scheduling, intake forms, sessions, and payments. An email will be sent to you for each appointment. If there is a problem, I'll log off and join again. If the issue continues, I'll ask you to rejoin the appointment. On occasion, this solution won't fix the problem so we will switch to having a session over the phone. Overall, it's worked well for my clients. As with anything, there have been a few challenges and we switched to the phone. We'll figure it out.
