Online Therapy in Virginia Beach, VA (Great Neck)—Online Therapists and Counselors

Online therapy is not a new counseling option, but it is growing in popularity, as it allows individuals to attend their therapy appointments from home. This means optimal convenience, comfort, and flexibility. Online therapy counseling can prove especially beneficial to people who can’t make it in to the therapy office for regular appointments, due to scheduling conflicts or physical disabilities, as well as those who struggle to open up to a counselor in-person.

If you’re interested in online counseling, consider working with an online therapist in Virginia Beach, VA (Great Neck). Our counselors are trained to help you over the internet, through both video and telephone counseling. To schedule your appointment, call (757) 347-3155.

Video and Telephone Counseling: How Does It Work?

If you choose to work with your counselor online, you’ll get to do so over video chat or phone call. With video chat, you’ll be sent a link to visit at the time of your scheduled appointment. Here, you’ll attend your session and work through the challenges at hand with your therapist, as you would in in-person counseling! With phone counseling, your counselor will simply call you at the time of your session and you’ll get started right away.

Online therapy proves to be an effective approach. Research shows that many people benefit from online counseling, and some even make greater progress in online therapy than in-person therapy—especially those who feel particularly nervous about starting counseling. These individuals often find that it’s easier to work with a counselor via virtual means instead of face-to-face.

What Are the Perks of Online Counseling? Who Can Benefit?

Holly lives in a small town. She doesn’t want anyone she knows to find out that she’s considering a divorce—unfortunately, the only counselor in the area is her brother-in-law. Chris works a full-time job and hasn’t been able to fit a counseling appointment into his current schedule. By the time he’s off work, the local therapy office is closed. Hannah is looking for a female therapist who has experience working with LGBTQ individuals; she can’t find any nearby.

All of the above individuals can benefit from online counseling. It can help Holly find a therapist who can guide her through her thoughts and feelings regarding her marriage; it can help Chris secure an appointment that works well with his schedule; and it can help Hannah find a counselor with the right skills, specialties, and expertise.

Counseling with Keshanda Garland

★★★★★
My session with Ms. Garland focused on identifying my life events and how they impacted how I previously dealt with diagnosed type 1 bipolar disorder. She listened and engaged with me as I vocalized my immediate fear and overwhelming stressors. Ms. Garland sat with me to customize coping skills for my triggers, including mania during parenting young children and going through a divorce. I have more confidence in how I’ll handle these problems with continuing with the aid of my prescriptions medicines. Thank you! Highly recommend for a compassionate and personal experience.
