Online Therapy - Video Counseling
Wake Counseling is excited to offer Online Therapy services throughout the state of North Carolina & Internationally, using HIPAA compliant telemedicine software. It is a secure & simple program that allows our licensed therapy staff to provide confidential counseling sessions with clients all over NC.
What is Online Therapy (usually referred as Teletherapy by professionals & health insurances)?
Online Therapy is a form of therapy or counseling facilitated through live-video chat instead of a traditional in-office setting. It is same quality of care as in-person session and will be private & confidential.
What are the benefits of Online Therapy?
Online Counseling allows clients to schedule at their convenience, even if you’re traveling within North Carolina. You will have access to an experienced counselor even if you don’t have transportation to make it the office. There will not be any need to drive to and from your appointment. Most importantly, no stress about traffic or trying to find parking. No stress over finding baby sitter if you have young children. You don’t have to sit in a waiting room with other people. It is as confidential as seeing a therapist in-person or in-office.
What are the limitations?
You must be residing in the state of North Carolina. Our therapist cannot provide therapy for individuals and families living out-of-state. You must have the privacy during the online therapy session (private room, where others are not intruding on your conversation).
Who can benefit from Online/Video Counseling?
Anyone living in the state of North Carolina can utilize Online Therapy. This technology makes it possible for individuals living at a greater distance receive the mental health and couples counseling services that otherwise will be very difficult due to time or transportation limitations.
