Eating Disorder Recovery
Joanna Poppink, MFT
Eating Disorder Recovery Psychotherapist
serving Arizona, California, Florida, Oregon and Utah.
All appointments are virtual.


Virtual psychotherapy is now the standard way of delivering services. If you've been in therapy and switch from seeing your therapist in person to seeing her online or on Facetime you may miss the personal presence and setting.  But you are grateful that your work continues with the person you trust and with whom you have developed a history.

If you are new to psychotherapy or new to the psychotherapist you are considering, what's it like to start work online? Your questions may include: 

1. What's it like to be with this person?
2. How will I feel with her?
3. I get a sense of a person when I am with them. How will I get that sense over a monitor?
4. I need support and warmth. Isn't virtual psychotherapy cold?
5. How can I share intimate personal information to a stranger on a screen?
6. How can she know me if she just sees my face on a screen?
7. What happens in online psychotherapy?
8. I need help. Can this kind of therapy work?

And you may have more questions. These are valid and make sense.

I tried to address your concerns in this video. Since online psychotherapy is a video experience, it only make sense to describe the video experience on a video. This way you receive the information in the format of that we are exploring.  I hope this helps you, and answers at least some of your questions.

You can always contact me for a free telephone consultation. E-mail me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
