What is Remote Therapy or Virtual Counseling
Remote Counseling or Virtual Therapy refers to various therapy types like Phone therapy, Video counseling, Chat therapy etc. These terms are used interchangeably but here is their technical affiliation.
About Video Therapy or Virtual Counseling
The Video Therapy or Video Counseling experience is very similar to the in-office therapy or in-office counseling experience in that it is virtual face-to-face where you can a get a real feel for the person you are talking to. You see the expressions, understand the moods, and hear the voice and subtleties of meaning. Online or virtual therapy and counseling is helpful for depression therapy, anxiety counseling, grief and loss therapy, stress, feeling overwhelmed and relationship counseling. Many hospitals and medical facilities have adopted online medical and virtual therapy and counseling. There are many services online that provide Video counseling. I am an individual provider so you would not be dealing with a corporation but with an individual provider focused on your well being. There are many reasons why people prefer online or virtual Video therapy and counseling. There are some who cannot travel or do not wish to travel and they can get the help they need remotely. There are some who are on tight schedules and Video online or virtual therapy and counseling allows them the flexibility to choose a time that fits with no travel time. There are some in rural areas where access to healthcare is limited and online or video therapy and counseling allows them access. I have been working with online or virtual therapy and counseling for 6 years and I have had feedback from my clients that they like it very much and find it effective. As the popularity of online or virtual therapy and counseling grows more and more people are appreciating the benefits of this type of online or virtual therapy or counseling.
About Phone Therapy or Remote Counseling
Phone, Telephone or Telephonic therapy and counseling is conducted on a HIPAA compliant secure line to ensure your security & privacy during all Remote Therapy or Phone Counseling sessions. The telephone sessions are good for people who do not have internet and still want to take advantage of the benefits of phone therapy or remote counseling. I have found remote therapy and phone counseling effective and there are some people who prefer it to Video online or virtual therapy and counseling.
About Chat Therapy or Remote text Counseling
Online Chat therapy or virtual therapy and counseling is conducted online on a HIPAA compliant site. Email is not recommended for Chat counseling as it is not secure. Chat online or virtual therapy and counseling is slower than Video counseling or phone therapy but because we value your comfort above all & some people prefer it, it is available.

While some people feel therapy or counseling uplifts them but don't have the time, others are understandably nervous or may feel ashamed.
