Online Services

Online counseling and coaching are typically done via videoconferencing, supplemented by secure messaging and possibly telephone conversations. Some clients work with their counselors or coaches entirely online, some do a  mix of online and face-to-face sessions. Is it for you?

Some of the advantages of online service delivery:

  • You can keep appointments in spite of weather
  • You can see your provider from the comfort of home
  • You can work with your provider when you’re out of town
  • You can receive services in remote and rural areas

Some of the negatives associated with online service delivery:

  • You are not comfortable using the technology
  • You do not have adequate computer equipment
  • Your internet connection is not fast enough
  • You are in crisis or need face to face contact
  • Your insurance may not cover online services

You can test whether your internet connection is fast enough for video chat by clicking the following link (you can optionally also try a video demo session):
