Online therapy vs. in person


Lately I have been coming to the conclusion that I need to do something about my mental health situation, and therapy seems like the most obvious answer. The problem is that I cannot imagine ever opening up to someone in-person about my problems.

I know there are options whereby you can obtain a therapist over the internet, and communicate by texting or emailing, even phone calls and video calls. That seems like it would be much easier for me to do. So I'm wondering, has anyone tried this? Does it work well, or is in-person therapy better?
