Success Story

Don’t settle.

You don’t have to work within the traditional constraints of finding a therapist you trust.

“Aaron” considers himself fairly knowledgeable about psychotherapy, he says, “for a layperson.” He’d been working with a “big city” therapist for about a year. They were making good progress. Then, he learned, he had to move. Too far away to keep his appointments. Far enough away he worried he’d lose all the ground he’d worked so hard to gain.Eventually, he found Dr. Dabney—but not by driving to her office. He met her via video.

Aaron was skeptical, yes. He didn’t want to lose the richness of his face-to-face in-office therapy. He also worried the video experience would feel flat, incapable of evoking the same type of response. Instead, he found that even via video he experienced deep emotions: grief, anxiety, joy, love rage. He explored deep issues. He learned to trust Dr. Dabney—and he’d never even met her in person.

“I never once thought the video experience inhibited my progress … ” he says, “my life changed for the better.”

You face enough already.

Transportation, time, privacy and availability
shouldn’t hinder with your efforts.

Dr. Dabney created Live & Online because, like you, she’s been there. Before becoming a doctor, Laura, herself sought relief from the pain of emotional suffering. Therapy helped her a great deal. She was even accepted to medical school. But the great news brought with it a difficult choice: if she was to pursue her medical career, she’d have to leave the area. Further complicating matters, the therapists near her new school weren’t available for months.Thankfully, Laura’s therapist agreed to try something new. They continued to meet—and eventually completed her therapy—over the phone. It was unusual. Not many therapists were doing it. But distance therapy gave Laura the path she needed. And it changed her life.

Settling for tradition has never been enough for Dr. Dabney. Sticking with “they way it’s always been done” isn’t an answer, it’s an excuse. In fact, she’ll bet on quality over convention every time.

“I know what it’s like to be told you don’t have options.”

Laura Dabney, M.D.

Therapy that doesn’t suit you will fail you.

You get to make this choice.

You are not alone. According to and other studies, as many as 7 million people have emotional problems and live in non-metropolitan areas with limited access to mental health care.

For millions more, it’s not just distance that complicates access to care.

  • Do you struggle with leaving, or going too far, from home?
  • Do you have a demanding job that requires frequent travel or offers little time away from your desk?
  • Are you socially friendly with the therapists in town and don’t want to disclose personal issues to them?
  • Are you dissatisfied with the limited options available to you?
  • Have you found that the therapists to which you’ve been referred are booked for months?
  • Do you worry about being seen walking into the mental health clinic?

Dr. Dabney developed Live & Online because, as a patient herself,
she vowed to do everything she could for her patients.

“Saying ‘no,’ isn’t possible; she really does need my help.”
“I’m too busy to even think about this right now.”
“I’m not the problem. It’s my husband [wife, kids, parents, boss] who need to change.”
“I’ll never get past this. It’s too big.”
“I couldn’t even name the problem if I tried.”

Hundreds of Dr. Dabney’s patients have said the same thing.

“I’m like a new person.”
