Online Therapy in Illinois

You’re struggling with your mental health but you don’t have time to make it to counseling sessions right now.

As a private person, you do not want others to know that you are going to therapy.

You live in a small Illinois town and the closest counseling clinic is at least a thirty-minute drive from your home.

But, you want to see a counselor that you like. It’s important for you to see someone who understands what you are going through and can help you feel better. You also need to see someone who provides therapy outside of normal business hours or is willing to accommodate your crazy schedule. 

Online Therapy is Exactly What You Need

I offer HIPAA compliant, safe, and secure video counseling. You can access counseling from your phone, tablet, or computer for clients as long as you live in the state of Illinois.  In this day and age, it has gotten easier than ever to fit quality mental health services into your busy schedule. You can meet with me from the comfort of your own couch, at work, or on the go.

Online Therapy is Convenient

Maybe, you want to protect your privacy. Maybe, you’re just busy. Perhaps, you are unable to leave your home due to physical limitations or illness, or you don’t have a car or are unable to drive.

Regardless of the reason, you can’t access in-person counseling right now, please know that mental health support is available via online therapy. I believe you should still have access to services through online counseling to work through your thoughts and cope with your feelings.

Plus, did you know that you can keep seeing me for therapy even if you’re not in Bloomington because you’re traveling throughout the state?  A major convenience with online therapy is that I am able to provide counseling as long as you’re located within the state of Illinois.

What does a video session look like?

For the best results, I ask that you find somewhere private so that you are not interrupted during your session.  This could be a room in your house, your office, or even your car. I will send you a link via Simple Practice beforehand that you will be able to access via your phone, tablet, or computer. At the time of your session, all you have to do is log in! It can be a bit anxiety-producing the first time, but it gets easier after that.  After a few minutes, it will feel like you are sitting right in front of me!

Limitations of Online Therapy

Like anything in life, there are some disadvantages. The most notable is technological glitches (e.g., inconsistency in internet connection strength or problems with the video platform). While these are rare and often overcome by minor fixes, this can become frustrating at times.

Additionally, online therapy is not for everyone. For example, in some situations, such as crises or suicidal or homicidal thoughts, in-person treatment may be the most appropriate treatment option.

Please feel free to contact me to see if video counseling is right for you!
