Getting Help Has Never Been Easier. 100% Via Text Message. 100% Private.
It is as easy as replying to a text. In fact, that is exactly what you will do. Once a session is scheduled, you will receive an introductory email, welcoming you to Text Therapy. This email will give you all of the information that you will need for your first session. Once your anticipated session is here, you will receive a text message from a psychologist. That is when your private and anonymous (if you so choose) session begins. Your therapist will introduce themselves and invite you to share about the details of that which you'd like to discuss.
The depth and detail within your session is completely up to you. We have found that the anonymity and personal distance that texting offers, allows for individuals to open up and communicate candidly and freely in ways which would normally be difficult or considered uncomfortable. In fact, many individuals are able to discuss root issues that could take many months or even years to resolve in traditional face-to-face therapy. These rare moments, which are often celebrated, are referred to as "break through" moments in traditional one-on-one or group therapy. In addition, we have found that writing out our thoughts and feelings, have certain healing benefits of it's own. Combining this cathartic exercise with the trained guidance of a compassionate therapist, is the invaluable service that is offered here.
Will I receive the same therapist for all appointments?
Absolutely. Text Therapy is part of a journey and the best way to make progress on that journey is to understand your personal and unique concerns and build upon that foundation. If for any reason you wish to change therapists, a new one will be assigned to you, no questions asked.
Can I select a specialized therapist?
Absolutely. Our team of psychologists are able to handle the majority of cases, however if you feel that you need to focus your session within specific parameters, you are able to do so. When scheduling your session, there is a drop down menu right above the calendar, allowing you to select the specialization that you feel is best for you. Otherwise, you can select "Psychologist - General" or "Any Available Staff".
What if I have questions before or after my appointment?
Simply go to the Contact Us area of our page and send us a message. In order to provide the level of privacy that makes Text Therapy unique, your identification is based upon the phone number that you use for your sessions, so simply provide your phone number and email address to be able to identify your account and reach you via email.
Do you offer group Text Therapy in addition to one-on-one sessions?
At this time, Text Therapy is a private, one-on-one therapy, but if you have a particular need to include multiple individuals, we can do our best to provide a customized session on a multiple person platform.
What credentials do the team at Text Therapy have?
Every therapist has a degree in psychology and have over 10 years of experience in mediation and conflict resolution. Areas of expertise vary, but each therapist has been trained in the Text Therapy general practice. All therapists live, work and were educated in the United States by some of the top universities offered in the country.
Since this is via text, will my therapist ever double book ...
Absolutely not. This is not like a customer service chat where your representative is juggling you and 10 other cases at the same time. Your sessions are completely private and you will receive a personal and committed therapist who is communicating with you and only you for the entire hour. Your histories will be maintained for future reference and your information is not shared with anyone, ever. The content shared during your private sessions is exactly that, private. In addition, your sessions are based upon an anonymous premise where personal information is not requested.
What if I still have questions before scheduling a session?
Feel free to have that question answered by sending us a message directly. We want you to be 100% happy with your decision to use Text Therapy before you even begin. Text Therapy as with all therapy is all about your comfort and your readiness to share.
