Both individual and couples counseling are conveniently offered online using secure HIPPA-compliant platforms. Couples do not have to be at the same physical location for this. Each partner can use his or her own electronic device to connect and then meet in the therapist’s online virtual office. All that is required is a very strong internet connection and earbuds with your tablet or laptop. A phone can be used but a larger screen is desirable. Your therapist will tell you his or her own internet counseling web address. Many insurances such as Blue Cross/Blue Shield of NC will cover internet counseling. However, if you have another carrier you should check with them first to be sure.
