So what exactly is online counseling?
Online therapy provides a private and secure treatment option from the luxury of your own home. Online counseling can be a comfortable and convenient option that allows you the opportunity to speak with me in a familiar and private setting.
What type of technology is used during counseling sessions?
- Teleconferencing – Through the use of secure & HIPPA compliant teleconferencing platforms, a face to face interaction is very similar to a visit to Makin Wellness
- Telephone – This interaction is for individuals who either don’t have video or are more comfortable talking on the phone.
At Makin Wellness, we feel that the quality of our therapist/client interaction is of the most value, regardless of what platform is used; thus, great therapy can be equally or even more effective than traditional office sessions depending on your unique situation.
Can I benefit from online therapy?
Online counseling definitely not for everyone, but has been scientifically proven to be an effective treatment option for lots of people. Those seeking treatment who find themselves in extreme circumstances, like suicidality , could be better suited to visit our Downtown location.
I believe I can benefit from seeking out counseling, but transportation is tough and I live outside the city.
Making the commitment to go to therapy comes with the responsibility of transportation and making sure you are in the office on time. The benefit of on line counseling provides an alternative for those who don’t have consistent transportation or just don’t want to drive if they don’t have do. Online therapy can be a great tool for those who live in suburbs or remote areas as well.
