Online Counseling

 

What is Telehealth or Online Counseling?

Telehealth or online counseling is video-based counseling services offered to clients over the internet using a HIPAA-secure connection via a computer, smartphone, or tablet.  These HIPAA-secure services offer privacy, security, and confidentiality.

Sessions can be scheduled at your convenience and in the privacy and comfort of your home.  Studies show telehealth is just as effective as meeting in-person with little negative impact on the therapeutic relationship.  (Source: Journal of College Student Psychotherapy, Aug 2018, DOI: 10.1080/87568225.2018.1491362)

Key benefits of online counseling:

  • Quality of Service: Mental health services via telehealth deliver similar, if not better, measurable outcomes and quality of services (Source:  https://www.americantelemed.org/resource/why-telemedicine/)
  • Client Satisfaction: Evidence shows that telehealth provides high client and clinician satisfaction with positive outcomes. (Source: Journal of Technology in Human Services, 26:2-4, 2008, DOI: 1080/15228830802094429)
  • Convenience: Schedule sessions that fit your schedule in the comfort and privacy of your own home. Without having to travel, you save time and money.
  • Cost-effectiveness: Telehealth services are reimbursed by many insurance plans.

To get the best quality out of our sessions, I recommend that you use high-speed internet service for your counseling sessions in a private setting free of any distraction or interruption.

If you feel online counseling is a good fit for you, make an appointment today and let’s get started.  Or if you’d like to try it out, I offer a free 20-minute video consultation via a safe and secure telehealth portal.
