Online Therapy for Asian Americans

Online Therapy for Asian Americans

Why Consider Online Therapy?

  • You live somewhere that doesn’t have many options for culturally informed therapists
  • You travel a lot and not able to make consistent appointments in person.
  • Your schedule is very hectic and online therapy is more convenient.
  • You live or are in a small “community” and would like a therapist from outside the “community”. 
  • Online somehow feels a bit safer to you

Does online therapy work as well as in person therapy?

While some studies suggest that online therapy is just as effective as in person therapy, we prefer to see clients in person in our offices in San Francisco and Portland. 


However, that is not always possible for clients due to constant travel, work and family demands, lack of culturally informed therapists near you, social anxiety, etc. In these situations, online therapy is better than no therapy or therapy with therapist that is not a good fit. 


There are circumstances and conditions in which we would not recommend online therapy. We can discuss your particular situation in a consult. Schedule here.
