Online Therapy

Online Therapy in Pennsylvania

Online Therapy allows us to provide counseling and therapy to our clients via live video conferencing. This can be done anywhere you have a computer or smartphone. Many studies have shown that telehealth therapy is as effective as in-person therapy.

Congrats! You finally decide to begin counseling.  But it may not be as easy as it sounds.  Perhaps you live in Philadelphia or Pittsburgh, and sitting in traffic for an hour to attend a one-hour therapy session may not seem ideal.

Conversely, you may live in a rural area with very few mental health resources.  Or, maybe you are just comfortable with discussing your most difficult issues in the comfort of your own home.
