Online Therapy Scottsdale Counselor

Online Therapy in Arizona

Online TherapyOnline therapy sessions are an increasingly popular option…

You’ve got a busy job, busy life, you travel regularly (within Arizona), you live outside the greater Scottsdale/Phoenix city limits, or you simply prefer the teletherapy option.

Maybe you’re a busy parent, and it feels impossible to get away… dealing with the hassle of finding a sitter, plus the extra money and travel time is just unreasonable.

Maybe after a long day at work, the last thing you want to do is travel across town to a therapist’s office. With teletherapy, you can do therapy from the comfort of your favorite spot on the couch.

Time, traffic, comfy clothes, don’t wanna shower… Whatever your reasons, we’ve got you covered.

Teletherapy makes it possible – even for couples!

Getting schedules aligned for both partners can be a challenge, and virtual therapy enables couples to join from two different locations when needed. Couples also benefit from online counseling because they tend to be more open and forthcoming when sharing from the comfort of their home environment.

Online counseling is traditional therapy… right at your fingertips.

You’re probably wondering how it compares to traditional, in-person therapy. The majority of therapeutic techniques used in-person can be adapted for use on teleconference, even Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

The important thing to know is that your privacy is protected with online counseling services just the same as it would be in-person. Our online therapy sessions are conducted via secure video conferencing that works whether you are using your computer or the internet connection on your phone.

You’ll need a computer, tablet, or smartphone with video capability and a reliable Internet connection. You should have a quiet space for some privacy with little background noise to focus and hear each other. It’s super easy – we’ll email you a link and you’ll be able to jump right into the video therapy call.

Is virtual therapy available when traveling outside of Arizona?

In the United States, therapists and mental health professionals are required to be licensed in the state where the patient is physically located at the time of service. For example, if you are an Arizona resident but are traveling for work or vacation in California, your therapist is not allowed to provide you therapy until you come back to Arizona – unless they also hold a current counseling license in California. Some therapists do hold licenses in multiple states but it’s not too common, so it’s essential to check the licensing of your therapist to ensure they can legally provide services in the state you’re traveling to should you want to maintain counseling services while you’re away.
