Dr. Melanie Chinchilla was recently interviewed by a journalist for Psycom, the 3rd largest site in the US that focuses exclusively on mental health. She shared useful tips on how to make online therapy work for you. 

“Teletherapy allows you to see your therapist without the commute time, which can be a huge plus for many,” says Melanie Chinchilla, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist in San Francisco. “Clients with busy schedules, parents who are staying at home, and those with limited ability or access to appointments really enjoy the flexibility.” In addition, you have access to professionals throughout your state, dramatically expanding your network of potential therapists. “This is particularly important for those living in rural areas or places where there aren’t many licensed therapists,” says Chinchilla.”
