Jesse recently lost his emotional support animal, a five-year-old chocolate lab, named Gus to cancer. They’d shared an unbelievably close bond—one that had helped Jesse make his way through college. Gus couldn’t talk with him, but just his mere presence alone helped Jesse more than many people’s well-intentioned words. Now with his best friend gone, Jesse isn’t sure what to do.
Thankfully, Jesse works from home, so he’s managed well enough by himself so far. But it feels too soon to get another animal–so Jesse is wondering if he should confide in a mental health professional. He’s not interested in commuting to a brick-and-mortar office without Gus right now, so Jesse wants to talk virtually with an online counselor or therapist. While he still feels anxious and alone without his companion, Jesse knows that being able to get treatment from his home could make a big difference.
Your situation may not be identical to Jesse’s, but the fact remains that online therapy and counseling is the modern choice for mental health care. And at Thriveworks in San Francisco, CA, our team of mental health professionals can help you virtually, by phone or by video call. Whatever your online counseling or therapy needs are, Thriveworks can help you reach your mental health goals with our virtual services.
