Imagine meeting with your therapist without ever having to leave your home.
What is Online Therapy?
Online therapy brings the comfort and care of a therapist office directly to you. As long as you have an internet connection and a working camera on your phone, tablet or computer, you can gain access to quality mental healthcare with one of our licensed therapists. Call today and find out how easy it is to get started.
We are home to hundreds of licensed therapists with years of experience in applying proven treatments in their specialty areas.
Meet with a therapist from the comfort of your home own at a time that fits your schedule and avoid the stresses of travel.
Most insurance covers online therapy, and if not, we have payment plans in place so that anyone who needs help is able to get it.
Online therapy sessions take place on a secure server and can only be accessed by your therapist, so you never have to worry.

Have you considered therapy but can’t find the time? Do you live in a rural area without a nearby counseling office? Are you restricted to your living space due to medical or personal reasons? These are just a few scenarios where online therapy makes sense.
Years ago, if you were without a local mental health provider, you would have very few options for help. Even if you have access to mental healthcare locally, there are a myriad of other factors that can prevent seeking in-person psychotherapy, including physical or mental health limitations, lack of transportation, lack of childcare, time constraints, and so forth.
Thankfully, now these barriers to mental health counseling have started to diminish. With the technology available today, online psychotherapy can take place over the internet via video chat on your phone, computer, or tablet.
There’s no question that online therapy is more convenient, but is it as effective as in-person therapy?
In a study of adults seeking psychotherapy for depression at a mental health clinic, 30 participants received therapy treatment by telephone for 8 sessions. Sixty-nine percent reported they were very satisfied with the therapy.
Furthermore, they reported a significant reduction in their symptoms of depression, and 42% considered themselves to be fully recovered at the termination of their telehealth psychotherapy. Other studies have shown similar results.
Many clients have found telehealth psychotherapy to be highly beneficial. In addition, unlike national online therapy services, we can match you with a local mental healthcare provider in or near the community in which you live, allowing for a stronger connection and the option to meet in-person.
If you have any questions for us or wish to make an appointment, call (800) 693-1916.
