  • Online Therapy in Washington, D.C.

    Black women sitting at a computer taking notes. Therapy shouldn't be inaccessible. That's why Orlesa Poole provides online therapy in Washington, D.C. Try working with a skilled online therapist to work on postpartum anxiety, depression, overwhelm and more.

    As a busy DC mom, you have probably delayed seeking therapy more than once, even though you really want to give it a try. Rush hour traffic is terrible, the parking situation often sucks and you certainly don’t need another thing to add to your to-do list. Depending on the time of day, getting from one side of town to another can mean over an hour-long commute (and you can’t afford to risk getting another speeding ticket)! With all this excessive inconvenience your hour-long therapy session can end up being a three-hour endeavor.

    Then once you factor in making arrangements for childcare, planning your session around your baby’s naps and mealtimes, your stress has started to double. And still having to get home in time to complete your household tasks, and parenting duties after your session, can make managing your stress, overwhelm, anxiety, depression, or PTSD easy to get placed on the back burner. At Managing Motherhood, our goal is to minimize your stress, not add to it. That’s why we provide convenient online therapy in Washington, D.C. sessions- available to you from the comfort of your home or wherever you may be at the time.

    Here are some reasons to choose Managing Motherhood for Online Therapy in D.C. to support you on the journey

    Out of Network:

    One major benefit to using Managing Motherhood is that we are out of network with insurance companies. Being that we are out of network, you don’t have to receive a diagnosis that might make it hard for you to one day receive a security clearance or work for a specific federal agency. The length of treatment, frequency of sessions, and what we choose to work on are decided in collaboration with YOU, instead of being dictated by the insurance company’s definition of “medical necessity”. You can receive the support you need, while also respecting your privacy.

    Less time commitment:

    We get it. You’re busy! Whether you work outside of the home or parenting is your full-time job, you barely have time to shower, much less leave the house for a therapy appointment. With online therapy, you don’t have to struggle to find a time for therapy. You can log on during a short midday naptime or during your lunch break.

    No commute with Online Therapy:

    There’s no need to drive and struggle to find parking or hope for a seat on the metro. Log on from the couch or from your bed. Or log on in your pajamas. What’s important is that you log in! Managing Motherhood makes accessing care as easy as clicking a few buttons.

    It is Effective:

    Did you know that online therapy might, in some cases, actually be MORE effective than traditional in-person talk therapy? CBT is an extremely effective and evidence-based treatment for a variety of mental health issues. CBT is also a cornerstone of my treatment of pregnant women and mothers. According to a recent meta-analysis in EClinicalMedicine that looked at 17 studies, CBT treatment that was delivered through online platforms, was more effective than face-to-face therapy at reducing symptoms of depression as well as reducing symptom severity.
