Dr. Marselle’s Practice
Do you need guidance and support as you respond to mental, emotional or physical challenges? Are you struggling to find a therapist who understands your needs? Is your schedule, location or condition preventing you from obtaining counseling services? Online therapy, or telepsychology, has been shown to be just as effective as traditional in-office therapy while offering added convenience, flexibility and privacy.
I am a licensed telehealth provider who can bring therapy to you. I have received specialized training and education to supplement my substantial professional experience as a psychologist and a Registered Nurse (RN). In online therapy, I foster a compassionate, non-judgmental environment where you can feel safe exploring personal or relationship difficulties while developing practical tools and strategies to find relief, healing and growth.
What to Expect
Getting Started: If you are interested in online therapy, you can contact my office to schedule an initial consultation or first session. In addition to discussing any questions and concerns you may have about the counseling process, we will take time to review intake forms and technical details you may need, such as minimum system requirements, how to access the online portal, or Waiting Room, and what you can do to troubleshoot computer or connection problems.
First Session: I encourage new clients to log-in to the online Waiting Room prior to our first session to test their connection. If you are experiencing technical difficulties, I will take time to help you troubleshoot the issue either by phone or online. Alternately, with your approval, I can access your computer remotely to help diagnose and resolve technical issues.
Once we have a stable connection, I will work with you to understand your particular challenges and develop a tailored approach to help you reach your therapy goals. By discussing past issues and assessing your current pattern of thoughts and behaviors, you can recognize why you are struggling and take steps toward meaningful, lasting change.
As with traditional therapy, we will often meet weekly or bi-monthly.
What You’ll Need
When logging in to the Telepsyonline website for therapy sessions, you will need a computer. laptop or mobile device with a microphone, camera, speakers and a solid internet connection. I recommend using a wired connection when possible to ensure a strong connection, though high-speed wireless internet can also work. Satellite internet should not be used for sessions as the connection is often too weak and unstable to conduct a productive session.
While the system I use is straightforward, if you feel you need more technical information or not sure that you have the right equipment and internet connection, click on Online Therapy to learn more.
