Is Modern Intimacy Accepting Patients in Miami? Are Sessions In-Person or Virtual?

 Modern Intimacy is currently working with individual patients and providing couples counseling in Miami Dade County, FL, South Florida, Coral Gables, and throughout the entire state. Sessions with our Florida licensed individual and family therapists are conducted virtually through a secure Telehealth video platform. We are not currently offering in-person sessions with our Miami therapists. 

We understand that Telehealth sessions might seem like a distanced way to conduct therapy, but we’ve seen how behavioral health counseling and couples therapy conducted virtually can be just as effective for our patients as in-person sessions. Telehealth is also a great opportunity for those who don’t live within a reasonable traveling distance to work with the therapist that is best for their needs, despite location.

Modern Intimacy’s staff is composed of mental health professionals at the Master’s and Doctorate level of education. Our therapists in Miami are a team of Licensed Clinical Psychologists, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists, Licensed Mental Health Counselors, Licensed Social Workers and Certified Sex Therapists. Our therapists at all credentials and education levels are trauma focused, competent, compassionate, solution-focused, individuals who are highly passionate about the work they do with their clients. 

 

What Styles of Therapy do Modern Intimacy Therapists Use in Sessions?

 

Therapy sessions usually occur weekly, but Modern Intimacy therapists are happy to accommodate whatever frequency works best for your schedule and resources. It can feel intense to share your entire life with someone you are just meeting, but many people find that sharing with their therapist feels more comfortable as time goes on.

    How Do I Know If I Need Therapy?

     

    Therapy for your mental or sexual health can be a helpful tool when it comes to understanding yourself better, processing a traumatic experiences, working through relationship conflicts, managing emotions from mental health conditions, working through stuck points in life, and much more. 

    There is often a belief that therapy is for people who are in dire need of help for their mental health. It’s so important for society to work towards normalizing mental health care for any reason. Your mental health and relationships shouldn’t have to get to a breaking point before it feels possible to seek out support. 

    Generally, if you find yourself even mildly struggling with issues with your mental health, emotions, lifestyle, relationships, and career, it wouldn’t hurt to explore the idea of starting therapy with a trained mental health professional. There is no topic “too insignificant” to take to therapy and ask for insight and support. 

    What Areas of Mental Health Do Your Miami Therapists Specialize In? 

     

    We’re lucky to have a staff of highly skilled therapists who come with diverse backgrounds in specialty, education, and experience.  Due to our therapy practice’s emphasis on intimacy and relationships, some of our most common specialty areas revolve around helping individuals and couples improve their relationships with others and with themselves.

Our clinical staff is consistently gaining trainings and supervision to provide the most modern, sex positive, non-shaming treatment to patients who come to us looking for help with their sex life or sexual health.

        I’m Interested in Therapy, but I Don’t Think I’m Mentally Ill. Can Therapy Still Help?

        Contrary to how mental health is often portrayed in society, therapy is not just helpful for people suffering from mental illness. We are passionate about destigmatizing mental and sexual health and in doing so, we don’t gatekeep what situations are “not serious enough” for therapy. Many people are going through something challenging most of the time, whether it’s unhappiness with their career, experiencing a difficult time within a relationship, feeling down more than usual, noticing stress around the state of the world, and so many more nuanced examples.

        One of the many advantages of therapy is it’s a space just for you. No topic is too insignificant, too taboo, or too vulnerable. Unlike the potential judgement or harmful feedback you might receive from others in your life, therapy attempts to take that pressure away by creating a safe space for anything and everything you wish to discuss, unpack, or work through.

        If you’re not sure whether or not therapy is an appropriate course of action for your specific goals, we’d be happy to chat with you during a complimentary introduction call to assess if our therapy services could potentially be helpful.

        How Many Sessions Would I Need to Feel I am Accomplishing My Goals?

        This can be a tricky questions to answer as the frequency of therapy can vary on different factors. One factor to consider is how frequently you can attend sessions. The recommendation of therapy frequency is typically weekly or bi-weekly sessions to reach the goals you’d like to work on in the quickest amount of time. That being said, therapy isn’t necessarily a race to the finish line. Many of the situations that people come to therapy to work through often come from childhood, learned behavior, long standing coping mechanisms, and more; all of which take time and patience to work through.

        Another factor is looking at how much work someone is putting into their mental health care. For instance, someone coming to therapy who is reluctant or ambivalent towards the work needed to make changes, likely will struggle to see lasting changes. The work done in therapy doesn’t stop once you leave the session. If you are ready to do the work and have an open mind to the process, you should start to see the results you’re seeking within a few months typically.

        Therapy is hard work, but it’s work that benefits so many people. It can feel so uncomfortable to sit with uncomfortable realizations, but acknowledging the ways you can improve your life can make a world of a difference.
