Online Counseling

We are seeing clients through online video counseling.

We're still helping you get unstuck and feel confident through the Coronavirus pandemic . We're serving you through online video counseling and are offering free online support groups, too. 
We'll be back in our Suwanee offices as soon as possible.

Why do we seem to let the hustle and bustle of life get in the way of doing things we need to do to take care of ourselves? Self-care is important and participating in therapy is an important piece of self care for many of us. Fortunately, there's a great option to help you participate in therapy within your own lifestyle: online counseling. If you have even the most basic setup, like a smart phone and a private spot, you can likely take advantage of online counseling.

Online video counseling is a form of telehealth (or telemedicine or telemental health) and is a fairly recent innovation. Telehealth allows for face-to-face services with your healthcare provider through an online video link. Thanks to modern technology, just about everyone in the U.S. has a smart phone or tablet capable of video chat. This ease of access to make video calls has revolutionized the health industry, allowing you to interact with your provider in a more convenient format.

Benefits

Online appointments are great to improve access to therapy by reducing barriers to treatment such as:

  • work schedule
  • distance to your preferred provider
  • lack of transportation
  • short-term illness
  • chronic illness or disability
  • limited open appointments with your therapist

You can fit counseling into your life! All you need is privacy plus a device connected to the internet. Imagine yourself fitting therapy in while...

  • On your lunch break
  • In the morning before your day gets started
  • At the end of your work day
  • Waiting for a delivery

The technology is easy-to-use. Our video counseling is integrated into our practice management software, so you can easily:

  • Schedule an online appointment through our client portal
  • Get reminders of your session through text, phone, or email
  • Click a link to start a session
  • Use your phone, tablet, or computer

We have invested in the training and equipment to make sure that your counseling experience online is private and secure.

  • Your video link is encrypted and complies with HIPAA laws
  • Your therapist has been trained in how to provide therapy remotely

Convenience and technology aside, we know that online counseling can definitely take some getting used to. It took us a while to get used to it, too!  But, we're experienced in providing therapy by video session and the important pieces of in person therapy stay in place, including:

  • face-to-face session
  • real-time interaction
  • therapeutic interventions used
  • established therapeutic relationship
  • fewer distractions

Is online counseling for you?

If you'd like to try out counseling online, let us know or even just self-schedule through the client portal. If you'd like more information about the tool we use for online counseling, visit Simple Practice Telehealth FAQs for clients.

Please note: Due to state licensing laws, we can only serve individuals who are in the state of Georgia at the time of service.
