In-Person Therapy Q & A
What is In-Person Counseling?
In-person counseling shares similarities with online counseling, but with a vital difference — you connect with your doctor or therapist at Dr. Messina & Associates face-to-face in one of our office locations. This format offers a more human connection, providing an opportunity for deeper communication with your doctor. For many, having their mental health provider physically present in the room fosters a sense of support and encourages positive changes.
In-person counseling allows your doctor to closely observe your expressions, gestures, habits, and the nuances of how you express yourself. This enhances the therapeutic experience.
