Are you interested in mental health therapy services, but don’t know how you can fit it in to your busy schedule? Or maybe lack of child care or transportation limits you from seeking services? Online counseling is a great solution to these problems.
At Move Forward Counseling several of our clinicians provide online counseling through a confidential, HIPAA secure website called www.doxy.me. This software is easy to use, does not require anything to download and provides the technology to conduct the session (similar to Skype or FaceTime).
There have been several studies which have shown that online counseling is just as or more effective as compared to face to face counseling. You can read more about the studies here.
While more and more insurance companies are recognizing online therapy and covering the cost, it is still best to ask your insurance company if this is covered under your benefit plan. If it is not covered by insurance self pay is always an option.
We have been conducting online sessions for the past couple of years and find that it works just as well as in-person sessions. We think online counseling will revolutionize the way people access services and is a “win-win” for both the counselor and the client.
Interested in seeing what online therapy has to offer you? Give us a call today to see if our services are a good fit for you. We can provide online mental health therapy to anyone living in the state of Pennsylvania.
