Virtual Counseling in WA State

For those who cannot make it into our Seattle office for counseling, we offer secure online therapy sessions for individuals and couples. Online therapy and virtual counseling are a great way to access the treatment you need from the comfort of your home, or wherever you might be. Don’t let the constraints of this pandemic (or your busy lifestyle) prevent you from getting the help you want and need. Our virtual counselors based in Seattle are available 7 days a week. Schedule your free initial consultation today.

Why Use Virtual Counseling Services?

People opt for online therapy for any number of reasons. Talking to a therapist online can help with:

  • Busy schedule
  • They do not drive
  • They have mobility issues
  • They’re not comfortable in unfamiliar environments
  • They travel for work
  • The pandemic is making it difficult or impossible for them to go places

Is doing Therapy online right for you?

Despite its benefits and wide availability, online therapy is not right for everybody. We offer online therapy under the right circumstances, but there are some caveats and guidelines to which we must adhere. These requirements have to do with your privacy, our compliance, and the success and efficiency of the therapeutic process.

Ultimately, the goal of therapy is to make you feel better, so it’s essential to ensure we remain within the guidelines. Some things to know about online therapy:

  • We offer online therapy throughout Washington State only
  • Online therapy is for individuals as well as couples
  • Therapy sessions are conducted over a HIPAA-compliant telehealth platform and are completely secure and private
  • You must access online therapy from a secure and reliable connection
  • You must have a quiet, private place to access your session; many clients who do not have privacy in their homes choose to have sessions from the quiet comfort of their car

How does Online Therapy work?

From our perspective, online therapy sessions are really no different from individual therapy sessions. Online sessions are conducted from a private space in our office over a secure, HIPAA-compliant connection. We do everything we can to make you feel comfortable and at-ease.

Is Virtual Counseling as good as in person?

Maybe you’re new to our practice, or maybe you’re already engaged in therapy with one of us. Either way, you may be initially hesitant or uncomfortable with the remote aspect of online therapy. We want you to know that in our experience, folks find it easy to settle in once they allow themselves to give it a try. If you have concerns, we’d be happy to answer any questions you may have before we begin.
