Have you considered the convenience of talking with a mental health professional online? Perhaps a commute to the office at rush hour is prohibitive, or maybe you live out of the city too far to get to a skilled professional. Some people find that meeting with a therapist from the privacy and comfort of their own home can be preferable – even for couples!
I provide online counseling through my secure practice management software, Simple Practice. This software is easy to use and understand, and provides a platform to conduct therapy sessions in the mode similar to Skype or FaceTime, but with the security that is needed.
In some cases, it has been found that online counseling can be just as effective or more effective as compared to face to face counseling.
Your insurance plan may cover online counseling sessions much like a regular face to face session now. I suggest that you verify coverage with your insurance company to see online counseling with an out of network provider is covered under your benefit plan. It’s possible to self-pay for the sessions as well.
Are you interested in seeing what online therapy has to offer? Let’s talk it over by phone to see if it would be a good fit for you. I can provide online counseling to anyone living in Washington state. Whenever we meet online, it is a state requirement that the client(s) is/are present in Washington state at the time of the meeting.
