Talk to a Therapist Online
Get the Mental Health Help You Need Remotely
The world has largely grinded to a halt because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, but that doesn’t mean the need for mental health services has stopped. In fact, in these confusing and uncertain times, the need for access to counseling is more apparent than ever. If you’ve been struggling with depression, anxiety, or other mental health concerns during the isolation imposed by the virus, or for any other reason, we can help.
Mind Wellness Counseling is based in Royal Oak, and we now offer our clients the option to speak with a qualified therapist remotely. Whether you need help in these trying times, or online therapy is simply more convenient for you, we are now able to provide you with teletherapy services. We are committed to being there for our clients during this time, when we all need community and compassion the most. Contact us today to get started.
Benefits of Teletherapy
Online therapy offers many of the same benefits as traditional in-person therapy, as well as some unique benefits of its own. Many studies have shown that online therapy can be just as effective as traditional therapy. Some of its benefits include:
No person-to-person contact, meaning no potential spread of germs or sickness
Greater accessibility for people with physical disabilities
Getting treatment when it is convenient for you
Continued access to treatment during stressful times
Confidential, secure treatment
The same level of quality treatment you would receive in office
How Does Online Therapy Work?
Online therapy is a simple, secure, and effective method of talking to a therapist face-to-face online. It has many of the same benefits of traditional therapy with the added convenience of being able to meet from home, and is especially necessary in times like this.
Our service works similarly to Skype and other online video chatting services by allowing you to speak to a licensed therapist over the internet or by phone. We send you a link through email or text (depending on whether you want to communicate through your computer or phone) and you click on the link when your appointment time arrives. At that point, you go into a virtual waiting room where you are greeted by a friendly, compassionate therapist.
A common concern with teletherapy is that online therapists may not be licensed or as experienced as they claim. When you choose Mind Wellness for online therapy, these concerns are put to rest. Everyone on our staff is licensed, professional, and dedicated to compassionate service. Click here to meet our team of mental health professionals.
You can also rest assured your information is fully secure and confidential through our teletherapy platform, as it is Health Insurance and Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA) compliant. All of the HIPPA paperwork and informed consent forms are sent to you through a secure client portal. We send you a link through email where you’re invited to create a secure password. You then download the forms, sign them, and effortlessly send them back to us through the portal, in a seamless process you can trust.
Your mental well-being and your privacy are of the utmost importance to us. We take every measure to protect the integrity of your information and make sure you receive high-quality, individualized service. You can also be assured that the same oath of confidentiality and professional service you are guaranteed in office extends to online teletherapy treatments.
This crisis has not only affected many of us emotionally, but also financially. If payment for teletherapy is a concern, you should know that many insurance companies have adapted to this growing trend and are paying for these much needed online services. Feel free to ask us if we take your insurance, or to ask us about our reasonable rates if you would like to self-pay. We believe in the importance of not neglecting your mental health during such times.
