Have you ever felt hopeless? Feelings of hopelessness can accompany depression; they can arise after being fired from your job; they can overwhelm you in grief; they can cause you to give up on a relationship; and they can make your life an unpleasant one to live. The good news—yes, there is good news—is that you can always work through these feelings and replace them with all of the hope in the world.
There is hope, even when your brain tells you there isn’t.”
–John Green, Turtles All the Way Down

What Is Online Counseling? How Does Online Counseling Work?
Online therapy is the convenient way to work with a therapist or counselor. It works to eliminate a long commute, traffic, and other unfortunate external factors that make therapy a hassle. If you decide to pursue online counseling, you’ll get to choose from a few options when it comes to how you work with your counselor or coach: You can connect with your therapist by phone or video. If you choose the former option, your counselor or coach will simply call you at the time of your appointment (make sure you have service!). If you choose the latter, you’ll be given a link that you can visit to connect with your counselor.
Now, in certain cases, you can also choose to work with your counselor via email/text messaging. This is a more relaxed approach to counseling, and it might be the right approach for you, if you’re looking for a casual experience in therapy. On that note, online therapy is not right for everyone. However, research shows that online counseling can be effective for a wide range of individuals facing a variety of life challenges.
