We get it. You work a full-time job, make dinner every night, juggle having a social life or work out, and barely have time to visit your parents once a week. You are stressed, overworked, and can’t catch a break. You certainly don’t have the time to go to an appointment. However, you wish you had the ability to talk to a counselor from wherever so that way you can get the support you need and let out some steam. Does that sound too good to be true? Well, it’s not! You can get the help you need, where you need it, when you need it.
One of the best pieces of advice I ever got was from a horse master. He told me to go slow to go fast. I think that applies to everything in life. We live as though there aren’t enough hours in the day but if we do each thing calmly and carefully, we will get it done quicker and with much less stress. –Viggo Mortensen

Online Counseling: How Does it Work?
Online counseling is not that much different than traditional in-person counseling. You will receive the same level and quality of care whichever method you choose. For online counseling, there are two options you can pick from. They are:
- Phone Counseling: For phone counseling, you will schedule an appointment on the day and time that works best for you. At that decided time, your counselor will give you a call and all you need to do is answer!
- Video Counseling: Similarly, you will set up the date and time that works best for you for your video chat. Instead of receiving a phone call from your counselor, you will receive a link (well in advance) to click on. The link will take you over to the chat room where you will have your session. All you need is an electronic device and an internet connection.
Online counseling is a great option to consider, especially if you have a busy schedule. It proves to be an effective and beneficial option for those who choose it. Are you interested in attending therapy via video chat or phone call? We have online therapists who are ready to help you find the happiness and success you are looking for. Reach out today.
What are the Perks of Online Counseling?
Online counseling has a multitude of benefits for clients who choose this route in their mental health journey. One of the biggest reasons why online counseling is so beneficial is its convenience. As we mentioned earlier, we understand that life can get busy and put a strain on your time to get from point A to point B. By choosing online counseling to receive your services, you can choose wherever you want to have your appointment. No more rushing from work to get to your appointment. You can call from your office, while you are waiting in your car, at home, or even the local coffee shop.
Another great reason why you benefit from online counseling is comfortability. Sometimes people may feel pressure when sitting in a room with their counselor for the first time. You might be nervous and feel awkward. Taking away that in-person aspect, some clients open up quicker than they would otherwise. That’s not to say that if you visit your psychologist in person that you are going to receive a different level of care or not make meaningful strides in your mental health journey, it just means that some people prefer to speak virtually. Also as previously noted, you can choose wherever you want to have your session. If you know you have a specific safe space in mind, we want you to be able to speak with your counselor from there.
Can Online Counseling Work for My Concerns?
The short answer is yes! There are so many different reasons to seek out the assistance of a licensed psychologist. Some of those reasons could be:
- Family troubles
- Poor communication skills
- Self-identity concerns
- Marriage counseling
- Life coaching
- Child therapy
- Addiction or substance abuse
- Coping with a physical disability
- Trauma or PTSD
- Grief counseling
This is not a complete list of reasons why you might reach out to a counselor. Every person’s situation is unique, and you are no different!
