Online Therapy in Chicago
You're a busy person, typically crunched for time. You value comfort and convenience. You prefer to cut out commute time where possible and you really like getting back some minutes in the day for some extra R&R or maybe more time enjoying family and friends.
Could online therapy in Illinois be a good fit?
Maybe you travel often for work or often have those out-of-town trips scheduled at the last minute, making it very difficult to regularly show up for in-office appointments. Maybe you’re a mom with little kids at home and finding a babysitter so you can get to a therapy session just makes it too complicated. Maybe your anxiety flares up when commuting or finding someplace new or your depression has you too wiped of any energy for you to get to a face-to-face session.
Therapy is important to you. Getting quality counseling and support matters.
And yet. You value therapy. You recognize counseling is something that is worth scheduling and creating time for. You want the results therapy brings, but the challenges of in-office sessions are just too many and too big.
This makes virtual counseling the perfect fit for you.
Online therapy, which had been very modestly growing as a way to deliver counseling services, has exploded onto the scene. Its benefits cannot be underestimated and one of the coolest parts about it is this: it is as effective as in-person therapy. For some clients, online therapy is actually better than face-to-face sessions, leading to better outcomes, more effective service delivery, and a more satisfactory user experience.
Is online therapy safe and confidential?
Online therapy is provided through HIPAA-compliant software, so you don't have to worry about your confidentiality is at risk. You also don't have to worry about the hassle of software or learning any new computer programs: all you need is reliable internet (and a pair of headphones, usually!).
What should I expect when starting online therapy in Illinois?
Before your first session, we walk you through the initial steps. We also send you a .pdf that has tips and tricks for making the most of your virtual therapy session. This allows you to feel as prepared as possible, and maybe even decrease some initial feelings of anxiety.
Right before your appointment time, we will email you a link to your video appointment. At (or right before) your scheduled session time, all you have to do is click that link! You will be placed in a “virtual waiting room” and your therapist will get started with you as soon as that session time hits the clock. The technology feels just like FaceTime, Zoom, or Skype but it’s private and secure, in accordance with HIPAA policies. From there, you and your therapist work together just as you would in the more traditional, in-person therapy room and will schedule future sessions, which will all work the same way.
