Online counseling offers unique advantages over traditional “brick and mortar” counseling:

 

Advantages of Online Therapy

1. A Good Option for Remote Areas

Online therapy offers access to mental health information to people in rural or remote areas.

Those who live in such areas simply might not have access to any other form of mental health treatment because there are no mental health practices in their geographic area. E-therapy gives these individuals access to treatment that they might not have otherwise.

2. Accessibility for Those with Physical Limitations

Online therapy provides accessibility to individuals who are disabled or housebound. Mobility can be a big issue when it comes to accessing mental health care. Individuals who are unable to leave their home for various reasons, such as physical or mental illness, may find online therapy a useful alternative to traditional psychotherapy settings.

3. Convenience and Affordability

Online therapy is usually fairly affordable and convenient. Since you will be attending therapy sessions online in the comfort of your own home, you can often schedule your therapy sessions for times that are the most convenient for you.

Today, many states require insurance providers to cover online therapy just as they would traditional therapy sessions. Contact your insurance company to learn more about e-therapy treatments will be covered by your policy. Online therapists often offer affordable treatment options for those who are not covered by health insurance.

4. Online Therapy Makes Information More Accessible

The Internet makes mental health information more accessible. People may feel comfortable talking to friends and family about health care issues, but may not feel the same discussing mental health concerns.

5. It Can Also Be an Educational Tool

E-therapy can be an important tool to help people learn more about psychological health. Even if you feel like your mental well-being is strong, online therapy can help you become psychologically stronger. You can learn more about health behaviors and coping strategies that will lead to better psychological health.

Over 1,000 people- every day are searching online for a Counselor to help with their life's challenges. You may work online full time or as a supplement to your current work. You may choose your case load because you are in full control in selecting each potential client. Pastoral Counselors who work online earn anywhere between $25 to $8,500 per month.

You are free to choose the times that are best suited for you. This can be mornings, evenings, nights or all day. You do not need to worry about acquiring clients, billing, support or operations. Just Counsel. You will be required to discuss in anonymity your case load with our Clinical director. This usually accomplished through Skype.

Your rate of pay will be $85 for 40 minutes and $130 for 90 minutes.  If you will be in the San Antonio area in the near future, please call me, and we’ll see about scheduling time to visit. Lunch will be on us.
