Essential Journey Counseling offers telehealth for clients who have already had a face-to-face session with their therapist. Selected Essential Journey Counseling therapist provides two forms of online counseling, Live Online and Asynchronous Online (Secure text Messages).
Online counseling is a great option for clients that are unable to come into the office because of schedule, distance, or physical limitation. Some patients report they can open up more and share more when they are not sitting across from someone looking at them. Online counseling can also help to lessen a person’s anxiety about sharing. We use a convenient, secure, and HIPAA compliant platform, www.Zoom.com, to conduct all online counseling sessions. Your therapist will give you directions on how to access Zoom with your phone or computer via the internet.
Essential Journey Counseling only offers online counseling to residents of North Carolina and South Caroline residents. You will need to check with your preferred therapist on state licensure requirements for online therapy. If you’re using insurance, be sure to check with your insurance provider about telehealth before scheduling. If your insurance does not cover telehealth, you can still receive telehealth at your regular rate. Crisis response may NOT be available for online counseling.
