In addition to Health Directions' in-person counseling and therapy services, online therapy and counseling is now being offered. Using a new and advanced online software platform called TherapyLiveVisit, Health Directions gives clients the ability to engage in online therapy sessions with a therapist or counselor over the internet, using a webcam and a computer.
The online therapy session is provided live and face-to-face from the privacy of your own home or office. The way it works is the individual and the counselor connect online at the designated appointment time and the session is conducted the same as a traditional in-person counseling session.
Benefits of Using Online Therapy
*Online therapy services enable individuals to receive counseling/therapy without the travel and wait time. *Online therapy can be done in the comfort and privacy of your own home or office, or anywhere that an individual can receive an internet broadband connection. *The only equipment needed to receive online therapy is a PC desktop or laptop computer, with a broadband internet connection and an inexpensive webcam and set of earphones. *Online therapy is delivered at a lower cost to the consumer and studies comparing telecounseling to in-person counseling sessions have shown the benefits to be equivalent. *Online therapy is available for anxiety, depression, substance use/addictions, and other emotional health issues.
Online services are sometimes covered by insurance, but check with your insurer about coverage for either in person or online mental health or addiction services.
