Talk therapy can be helpful for people from all walks of life and at any age. While traditional therapy involves meeting with a therapist in person, that option may not be available or suitable for everybody. Fortunately, today’s technology gives us an alternative in the form of online therapy.
How Does Online Therapy Work?
In most respects, online therapy sessions are identical to sessions that happen in a therapist’s office. You will meet with your therapist in a secure chat room if you prefer video chat or phone.
Your online sessions are confidential and can be used to address the same issues and struggles that may be addressed with traditional, in-person therapy. These may include depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, relationship conflicts, and grief.
Benefits of Online Therapy
While online therapy is a relatively new phenomenon, people who receive mental health counseling online reap the same benefits as those who get in-person counseling. Here are a few of the most significant benefits.
Comfort and Convenience
One of the biggest benefits of virtual counseling is that you can attend your session from the comfort of your own home. There’s no need to drive through traffic or bad weather to get to your session. You can participate from wherever you are.
Online counseling services offer greater privacy than in-person sessions. Our sessions are held on a HIPAA-compliant platform that protects clients’ privacy. Our counselors and therapists are professionally obligated to maintain your privacy, so your information will always be safe with us.
There is a shortage of mental health professionals in the United States and many people, particularly those in rural areas, may not have access to a nearby therapist to get the help they need. With online sessions, all you need is a reliable internet connection to meet with a therapist who can help you.
When you meet with a therapist at counseling offices, you may be limited in the availability and flexibility of appointments. Some people can’t meet during the day as they are unable to get time off from work. With online therapy, there is flexibility in when you schedule your sessions, making it easy to get therapy outside of work hours.
Safer Than In-Person Sessions
In some areas and situations, it may be risky for people to attend in-person therapy. With telehealth therapy, you can participate in a session from wherever you choose, without adding to your commute time or risking your safety. All online sessions happen on our secure video platform to protect your privacy.

Relationship conflicts may arise in any relationship, including relationships at work and friend groups. Sometimes, an online counseling session (or several) can help all parties in the relationship understand the dynamics that have led to conflict, so they can move forward.
