Online Therapy & Counseling
Feeling isolated, confused or overwhelmed? Feeling unsure or uncertain during this time? Many clients report they feel more comfortable and experience results faster with teletherapy.
How Does Online Therapy Work?
Online appointments allow you to receive the same quality care as you do in person.
Online therapy or teletherapy allows you and your clinician to meet from separate locations through video over the internet.
You will need access to a private space, a good internet connection and a computer or tablet to engage in online therapy. Our online therapy platform is HIPAA compliant and secure.
