Counseling During Social Distancing
These past few years have been extremely challenging for everyone and we know it's hard to think about how long this pandemic will impact our community. Calm Blue Waters Counseling, PLLC wants to encourage each of you to continue to support your emotional health needs that you are experiencing as we all continue to adjust to changes in our lives and community.
Maintaining your mental wellness is a struggle that many are facing right now. We may be rapidly trying to adjust our lifestyles, but in doing so we ignore the emotional strain it is taking on ourselves and our relationships. Calm Blue Waters Counseling, PLLC offers teletherapy and phone sessions to meet you right where you are.
What Is OnlineTherapy?

Currently, when people talk about teletherapy, they are most often referring to online therapy provided through video conferencing or by phone sessions.

Find out some of the Benefits of Teletherapy.
* Please note that teletherapy is available for North Carolina, South Carolina, and Florida residents only due to state licensing laws.
What to Expect: Our first session will be an assessment. Think of it as a mental health check up. We will ask lots of questions to get a good sense of who you are and how you might be helped. We will offer recommendations for treatment. They may be with me, or in cases where others would be a better fit, we promise to share that recommendation as well. The first session is not a commitment to therapy. You can choose to proceed or not. It is an opportunity to learn more about yourself and about the process. Each day is a new chance to invest in your best self.
