Online Counseling

Our office will provide online counseling for individual counseling, couples counseling and marathon intensive counseling to provide a safe environment during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Online counseling provides convenience and accessibility for individuals and couples who are unable to come to our office for live therapy. Consider online counseling if:

  • You are differently-abled or housebound
  • Live out of our service area, but still reside in Texas
  • If you have child care issues
  • If you and your partner are living in separate areas, but still reside in Texas 
  • If you prefer the convenience of working online

Is Online Counseling Effective?

Yes! Online therapy is as effective as in-person therapy. Studies have shown there are no significant differences in the modalities. You and your therapist are still able to develop a therapeutic bond. Your therapist will be able to provide you with psycho-educational materials via email, collect payment in a secure manner, and use a HIPAA-compliant platform for your privacy concerns.

How Does Online Therapy Differ From Live Therapy?

Online therapy has some nuances and requirements. Listed below are points to consider.

  • Per state regulations, to engage in online counseling you must be a Texas resident and be physically in the state of Texas for all sessions.
  • We will screen for fit prior to our first session.  For couples, this means we will have you complete an online questionnaire prior to our first session.
  • You must have a good internet connection and be somewhat proficient with technology, however, the platform we use is quite easy to use.
  • Technological difficulties sometimes interfere with sessions.  We will switch to telephonic sessions as a backup plan.
  • You must provide proof of identity and residency (Driver’s License).
  • You will fax pertinent information to us at 281.812-3777.  Email is not considered secure.  
  • You must provide us with a 10-digit phone number to your local emergency services.
  • We must both be in a secure area with no distractions and where confidentiality is ensured.
  • Online sessions may not be recorded by either party.
