Not only more important than ever but more accessible than ever in the comfort and safety of your own home.

How Does Online Therapy, or Telehealth, Work?

At Move Forward Counseling, our clinicians provide high-quality online therapy with a confidential, HIPAA secure platform. This platform is integrated into our Electronic Health Record called Theranest. This software is easy to use and does not require any downloads. Providing the platform to have a session (similar to Skype or FaceTime, but with more security).

But, we think online counseling will revolutionize the way people access therapy in PA. Honestly, is an overall “win-win” for both the therapist and the client right now.

Counseling for women and teens can happen with online therapy for women in York, Erie, Scranton, Allentown, Pittsburg and Philadelphia with licensed online therapists for trauma treatment, anxiety treatment, depression treatment, mental health and pregnancy and postpartum counseling.

Luckily, the insurance companies we work with are recognizing how important online therapy is. So, they now cover these online therapy sessions to increase access to mental health care. All of the insurances we are in-network with at Move Forward Counseling will pay for telehealth. Just the same as they will pay for a therapy session that happens in the office. Some plans are even waiving co-pays for telehealth for the time being.

Telehealth is a great option for clients who aren’t sure how to fit therapy sessions into their busy schedules. Whether because of a demanding job, lack of childcare, or a long drive to our offices, telehealth is often the more convenient option. In fact, more clients than ever are exploring online therapy for a number of issues. And, we are happy to report they are finding success! With increased stressors of the pandemic, online therapy brings flexibility to the table.

We have found that our clients have continued success utilizing telehealth services. Often, just as much they would with in-person sessions. Our therapists are committed to providing high-quality counseling. Of course, with extra care to walk each client through any questions about technology. Research has found that online therapy is just as effective as in-person counseling.
