Online Counseling

What is Tele-Mental Counseling?
If you find yourself in circumstances that make it difficult or even impossible for you to receive therapy in person, Tele-Mental counseling is a great way to get the care you need. Thrive Counseling & Consulting, PLLC is delighted to offer certified Tele-Mental counseling for mental/psychological, marriage, and family counseling needs. While it should not be viewed as a complete substitute for in-person therapy, distance Tele-Mental counseling offers an excellent way to fit therapy into a tricky schedule.
How Does Tele-Mental Counseling Work?
The preferred mode of distance therapy is video teleconferencing. Our therapists use Vsee, a secure HIPAA-compliant program, to conference between their personal computer at our office and a private PC to which the client has access (preferably at their home residence).

We normally require an initial face-to-face meeting at our therapy office before beginning Tele-Mental health services. However, we know that sometimes this is not possible. In those cases, we will substitute a video conference. For more information, please call or email us; one of our Tele-Mental certified therapists will be glad to answer your questions.
Is Tele-Mental Counseling Secure?
Your privacy and confidentiality is one of our top priorities. Our video teleconferencing program, Vsee, is secure and fully HIPAA-compliant. This will always be our preferred mode for providing distance therapy. While there are other forms of communication available, such as cell phones, email, or text messaging, we do not recommend using them except as a means of coordinating appointments. For more information about information security and confidentiality, see the Tele-Mental Behavior Therapy Consent Form.
