Online therapy benefits
Online therapy and mental health services provide greater convenience and comfort, among a host of other advantages. Meeting with an online therapist can empower you to get the help and emotional support you need. Here are just some of the powerful benefits that online therapy services offer:
Online therapy saves you the time and effort it would take you to travel back and forth to and from a traditional in person therapy clinic. Since you don't have to take into account travel time, online therapy makes it even easier to fit counseling into your busy schedule.
Since online therapy is accessible from anywhere in the state you live, you don't have to travel to get to the nearest therapy clinic. If you live in a remote area without access to nearby counseling services, you can easily access a licensed online therapist in your state from wherever you are. See a licensed therapist from the comfort of your home or whatever location is most convenient for you.
Online therapy is private, secure, and less of a commitment than traditional therapy. Since online therapy services offer ease of access and scheduling flexibility, you may find it easier to keep your mental health treatment private and discreet, if that's your preference.
Many in person therapy clinics prefer that you commit to an ongoing program. Our online counseling services allow you to sign up for a single therapy session, so there's no pressure to commit or continue if it's not the right fit for you.
Online therapy is often less expensive than traditional in person therapy, since online mental health services avoid the overhead costs associated with brick-and-mortar clinics, like rent and utilities. Online therapy cost varies among individual sites and online therapy platforms, just as with in-person therapy.
However, it is easier to find online counseling that fits within your budget. Also, for patients without insurance, the cost of an online therapy visit is often much more affordable than an in person visit.
Online counseling provides greater access to a wide variety of diverse licensed therapists and licensed clinical social workers, as well as a variety of treatment options, including cognitive behavioral therapy and other treatment modalities. We even have online therapists that speak multiple languages, have experience with patients of various backgrounds, and are allied with specific communities, such as the LGBTQ+ community and racial justice community.
You can first get to know a licensed mental health professional by booking a free 15 online consultation to make sure you find your match. If you find a licensed therapist that you feel comfortable with, you can then easily book full online therapy sessions at times that work for your unique schedule.
A survey by the American Psychological Association found that 98% of patients rated their online counseling sessions as more convenient and comfortable than traditional in person counseling.
You may find it easier to open up to a mental health professional across a screen from the location you find most comfortable, rather than in an in-person therapist's office.
Simple medication management
Since our platform makes it easy to receive collaborative care from our online therapists and other health care providers, it is easy to manage your mental health prescriptions from one single platform. Your online therapist can recommend you to a clinician to provide you with a mental health prescription, and then you can have your medication sent to the pharmacy nearest you.
