Making traditional therapy work for you on an ongoing basis can be a pain.  Whether you have to battle the never ending Los Angeles or Sacramento traffic, or frequently flying between San Diego and San Francisco- online counseling makes therapy accessible.

Or Maybe you live in San Luis Obispo County, the far reaches of Riverside County, Temecula, or Victorville and therapists are just not readily available?

Maybe you just like online counseling better?  Who wouldn’t love cuddling in their comfy spot with a warm coffee?

Benefits of Online Counseling

Save Time.

Whether it is Los Angeles traffic you have to battle during rush hour, or being a parent with not enough time in the day. You can use our video platform from anywhere. Your downtown office during lunch, your cozy bedroom, or during your morning walk in San Francisco. Online therapy saves time with accessibility.

Increased Privacy.

Sometimes, going into an office is a little too public. You don’t want to be seen going into a therapists office. Maybe you are in the public’s eye working at the state capital in Sacramento. Perhaps you are an aspiring Navy Seal in San Diego. Or you just don’t want your nosy friends and family to see you walking into a therapy office. Whatever the reason, online therapy can help.

No Need For a Sitter.

Normally, if you work during the day- you need to find a sitter for the kids in the evening or the weekend. Online counseling means- you don’t have to have a sitter. You can see a therapist when it is convenient for you! After you drop the kids off in the car. At home in your bedroom with the kids locked out. So, whether you are near us in Whittier, or far from us in San Jose —> we’ve got you covered.

Finding the Right Specialist.

Not every place has someone that does what they need. If you are looking for a group for people who went through narcissistic abuse- you may not find one in person. Online, you can unite with others in their healing journey. Need someone who specializes in sexual trauma, but no one seems to fit with you in your area? Online therapy can help.

Online Therapy in California for Sexual Abuse and Trauma

When you have experienced trauma like sexual abuse, you want a therapist you can trust.  Sometimes, it’s a pain to go into the office of 10 different therapists to find the right one.  Online counseling makes it easy to find a specialist who you can trust.

At PAX Therapy, Kristin Martinez is a specialist who has spent her career dedicated to making the lives of victims and survivors better.  As a sexual abuse victim and survivor herself who has been through several phases of healing- she gets the nuances and hidden shame of sexual abuse and sexual traumas.  Kristin gets that sexual trauma also means there is family trauma and dynamics that may have set the stage for the abuse to happen.  You can check out our general trauma page for more information (www.paxtherapy.com/therapy-for-trauma/) or click Request Free Consult to set up a free 15 minute call with Kristin.

Online Therapy in California for Healing From Narcissistic Abuse

Living with a narcissist or borderline who is not seeking treatment can be damaging and traumatic experience.  Often times, the narcissist maintains their “face” outside of the home.  In the home, emotional and physical abuse are an everyday occurrence.  Healing is complex and involves the trauma of the actual narcissistic abuse, and the traumas that were a result of the abuse.

Is Online Therapy Effective?

Online therapy is just as effective as in-person therapy.  In fact, many people find it more effective than traditional in-person therapy.  Often, in-person therapy relies heavily on relationship building- which happens naturally when body language is involved. Online therapy also depends on relationship building; however, oftentimes building relationships online requires the integration of different techniques and skills which are just as effective.

We have also included below some common questions that people have:

Do you accept insurance? We  accept all PPO or POS plans, and all Cigna plans.  PAX Therapists are waiting to accept Optum, United Healthcare and Kaiser in the coming months.
