What does your business do?
Analyzed from the comforts of YOUR couch
Get off the couch by sitting on your couch--Future You can help nudge you.
No more running to your therapist's office, looking for parking, paying for parking only to be late and stressed... Counterintuitive that you are seeing a therapist because of a stressor...but the mere act of getting to their couch adds additional stress. So let’s cut out the additional stress... Future You can help you: Get Analyzed From The Comforts of YOUR couch! I am campaigning to start an On-line and Mobile Therapy practice.
Due to unsafe neighborhoods, lack of resources, rural areas, mobility challenges, illness, stigma and, a litany of other obligations, it is increasingly difficult take care of you... My company Future You wants to provide services to people that want to talk with a professional but have real obstacles preventing them from doing so...
You can be analyzed from just about anywhere you choose. Instead of finding time to get to your therapist's office, pay for parking, showing up already stressed etc, you can receive services without the aforementioned hassles...and with no overhead of paying for an office; I am able to keep my rate affordable.
I have a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology and am a licensed therapist. For the past decade I have worked with impoverished chronically mentally ill adults living in mental institutions. I have also taught University level Abnormal Psychology and Personality Disorders.
My style is witty, provocative and, I think have the mind of Chess versus Checkers player. I generally do not require copious amount of details to understand the whole story...Yes, great as a therapist, rather annoying for my friends.
