Telehealth or “online counseling” helps to address some of the roadblocks that get in the way of starting or continuing counseling.
Maybe mental health support is limited where you live, maybe your schedule doesn’t allow you or your teen to make it for an in-office session, or maybe you can’t find anyone who specializes in the issues you or your teen are dealing with. Online counseling offers a solution.
Telehealth itself is similar to in-person counseling except that it provides the convenience of doing sessions without all the legwork of getting to a physical office. Instead, sessions are facilitated over a secure video-conference platform and you can participate from home, school, work, on vacation, and more.
