Psychology for the 21st Century
How the Practice is Changing
Lisa Herman is a hard-working wife and mother, but when she’s not spending time with her family, this licensed clinical psychologist uses her Maple Grove home to conduct therapy sessions with patients.
Except her patients don’t come to her home office. Instead, she treats them by video conference.
“We’re bringing therapy to you, on your time, in the comfort of your home, in the comfort of your surroundings,” Dr. Herman said, as she demonstrated how e-therapy sessions work on her laptop.
Herman recently launched the website, ‘Synergy eTherapy,’ as a way to provide mental healthcare for people on the go, or for those not comfortable with a traditional clinic setting.
“Maybe somebody has a lot of anxiety and just the thought of going into a clinic can be really overwhelming,” Herman said. “So this takes out that barrier to getting healthcare, and getting access to mental healthcare.”
