Online Sex Therapy for Individuals and Couples
There are many people who are currently either in a “Shelter in Place” or are “Safer at Home” due to Covid-19. There are also individuals and couples who simply struggle to make it into the office. Natalie Finegood Goldberg and her sex therapist associates offer online sex therapy and psychotherapy for individuals or couples located within the state of California.
How does online sex therapy work?
Online sex therapy helps improve a variety of issues. Explore issues such as men’s sexual concerns, women’s sexual concerns, couples therapy issues, sex therapy, sex addiction therapy, depression, and anxiety. Online sex therapy addresses specific topics like erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, low desire, vaginismus, lack of sex between partners, and general intimacy issues from the privacy of your home. Sessions are held using a secure, HIPAA compliant video platform through Google Hangouts Meet. After scheduling your appointment, we will send you a secure link to connect with your therapist.
How to make the most out of online therapy
Therapy is most effective when you are as honest as possible. Start by identifying your specific concerns and goals. Your therapist can also help identify goals with you if you are unsure but just know there’s a problem. After that, your therapist can help explore with you what might be contributing to the problem. Why have things gotten the way they have? How can you improve them? Because the format is online, it’s best to find a place where you can speak freely without distraction. This can happen in your bedroom, living room, or home office. Some clients even prefer the privacy of their car! Sessions are generally held weekly and are 50 minutes in length.
What does online sex therapy cost? Will insurance cover it?
Online sex therapy costs the same as in-person therapy, $225 for 50 minute sessions. Natalie and the therapists at Creating Change LA do not accept insurance. If you’d like a superbill, contact your provider to find out your “Out of network mental health benefits” and if you have “an out of network deductible” that must be met before benefits kick in. The state of California requires insurance companies to reimburse for telehealth sessions the same as if they were in-person, particularly during the Covid-19 pandemic.
If attending in-person therapy is a struggle, online sex therapy is the next best option.
