Online Counseling In Philadelphia, PA
Online Therapy or “Telehealth” in Pennsylvania
You’re a busy person – there’s work, cleaning, cooking, caring for children, providing for parents, and trying to maintain friendships.
For so long now you’ve been setting your needs aside, imagining that more space will open up later.
You’re starting to realize that no one else is going to prioritize your well being and health. You need to make space for yourself to think, feel, and process life without having to edit yourself. If this describes you, online therapy could be the right next step.
The Benefits of Online Therapy in Pennsylvania
If you feel like a hamster running on a wheel, you need support that is convenient and accessible. At Prosper Counseling LLC, we know that prioritizing yourself isn’t easy – so you need the process to be simple and clear. Online therapy or “telehealth” is offered to meet that need for ease and accessibility.
Online counseling can be done from any room in your house. You can even do sessions in a car if that’s the only private place available to you. All you need is access to the internet and a phone, computer or tablet. For some people, being in their own home provides a sense of safety and comfort not available to them in a therapist’s office.
Many clients find the time they save by meeting a therapist online is a huge plus for them as well. They don’t have to get dressed and ready, drive back and forth to the office and park like they would for an in person appointment. People with limited mobility or a lack of access in rural areas of the state can get the specialized trauma treatment that they’ve been looking for.
Online Therapy is Effective
Research has shown that online therapy is just as effective as in person therapy. Clients and therapists alike were forced to test this finding during the recent Coronavirus pandemic. Prior to COVID-19, online therapy services were once considered optional and rare. After March 2020, online therapy services suddenly became the only way therapists and clients could continue to safely meet. Online therapy clients continue to meet their goals, feel supported, and process trauma through online counseling. It is not only convenient, but critical to be able to provide consistent, ongoing care.
How Does Online Therapy Work?
At Prosper Counseling LLC, we provide high quality online therapy through a confidential, HIPAA compliant secure video conferencing service integrated into our Electronic Health Record (EHR), SimplePractice. SimplePractice makes filling out paperwork, connecting to virtual appointments, and paying for sessions easy and secure. We make sure our clients get reminders for appointments, know how to log on, and send tips and suggestions for what they might want before and during their online sessions.
