I offer online sessions to clients in Michigan or Oregon. Online counseling is a videoconferencing session that many have found to be just as good, or better than in office visits.
While some may not have heard of internet or online counseling, it is not a new thing. People have been successful in online counseling for years now. However, as technology continues to grow, so does the field of counseling and it’s ability to reach more people. I work through a videoconferencing company that is a HIPPA compliant platform to ensure confidentiality. Counseling via videoconferencing is not much different than being face to face in an office, but instead the sessions are conducted from the comfort of your own couch.
Just some of the benefits include: no need for daycare, not having to leave work for appointments, no transportation expense, no waiting in traffic or trying to find parking, not having to wait in a waiting room with the potential to be seen by someone you know, and much more. Online counseling can also be utilized for clients whom I normally see in the office if the weather is bad, or can’t leave their house for some reason but still want to have there session.
