Why Try Therapy or Counseling Online?
Online therapy or counseling lets you access mental health care from the comfort of your own home. Many of our clients thrive using this style of therapy as it helps them be more comfortable and at ease than they would in a traditional therapy environment.
Clients love online therapy for many reasons, including:
- Easy scheduling: Finding a time for mental health care is easier when you don’t have to plan for a commute to a provider’s office.
- It’s comfortable: You might be nervous about the idea of in-person therapy or counseling. Working with a mental health professional online lets you choose where each session will take place. Feeling comfortable in your own space can help you be more open with your provider so you can make progress during each session.
- Treatment choices: You can choose between working with a provider through phone calls or video sessions. Phone counseling can be a great option for removing distractions or if you’re nervous about speaking with a therapist or counselor. Video chats are great for people who need face-to-face interaction, or who are already comfortable with the idea of seeing a mental health professional.
- It’s simple: Online sessions are incredibly simple. If you’re working with your provider over a video chat, you’ll receive a link before your session is set to start. Just click the link to enter the call. If you’re talking with a therapist or counselor over the phone, you’ll receive a phone call when your appointment is set to start.
Working with a professional can provide relief for your mental health. They’ll help you manage any symptoms you’re experiencing and find a healthier path forward.
