Online Therapy: Making Therapy More Accessible to All

Online therapy, also called Telehealth, can be a game-changer – helpful, flexible, and safe, all rolled into one.


Online therapy is flexible

Flexibility means you can say goodbye to stressing over commuting or fitting sessions into a packed schedule, or finding a babysitter.


With online therapy, you call the shots. Connect with your therapist from your favorite cozy couch. Snuggle up with your fur babies, favorite blanket and a cup of tea. It's therapy on your terms, tailored to your life.

Ability to schedule more sessions

When you have to travel to appointments or take time off work to see a therapist, you may not be able to schedule as many sessions as you’d like. Some people worry how they can tell their boss, or if they need to keep it a secret to protect their job. Since online therapy is so flexible and convenient, it might be possible to schedule additional sessions. You can also find therapists with schedules more like yours because you aren't tied to a 10-mile radius.

An illness, bad weather, and other obstacles can also result in needing to cancel appointments. One of the benefits of online counseling sessions is that you won't have to worry about external events forcing you to reschedule or late cancel a session. This also cuts back on missed session fees. 

Online Therapy is Safe

Some folks worry about spilling their deepest thoughts in the digital universe. But fear not! Online therapy is a secure space. We've got virtual bodyguards in the form of encryption to keep your personal stuff personal. Safety extends beyond just tech – it's about feeling secure in your own emotional space. Pour your heart out from your safe zone – just remember to lock the door, send the family out for groceries, and turn on a sound machine. You can even sit in your car if you prefer or have to. Just no driving, please! 

Online therapy is also proven to be as effective, if not more effective than face-to-face therapy. All methods of therapy can be provided online, such as couples therapy, EMDR, hypnosis and more.

Online therapy is freedom

Pick a therapist who gets you, who speaks your language – culturally and figuratively. You have more access to someone beyond your neighborhood radius.


Often people complain that they can't find a therapist nearby, that takes their insurance, that has the hours they need for their schedule, and can treat the issues they have. It can be very frustrating to finally seek support and be met with no options. Online therapy gives you the likelihood of finding that perfect match and it doesn't matter if the therapist is located 90-minutes away.

Online counselling

Online therapy is freedom for people with disabilities

Not all brick and mortar therapy practices are accessible for those with physical disabilities. Many therapists have offices in buildings with no elevators and non-ADA bathrooms. Many have street parking or are not on a bus route. 


People with social phobias, agoraphobia, severe depression, compromised immune systems and other health conditions can also feel more comfortable with online therapy. 

Online therapy broadens the number of people who can receive support. That's empowerment!
