Is your busy schedule getting in the way of what you need to feel better?
Maybe you have very little time before work, after school, or on the weekends to take care of things. You may dread the idea of how much time you spend driving in annoying traffic. Perhaps you feel concerned about your privacy, like if someone you know saw you in the lobby of a therapist's office.
When it comes to therapy, you might be thinking about:
The added cost of paying for gas
Getting sick from someone you come into contact with
Sitting in an uncomfortable chair, inside of a bland office, for 50 minutes
That's where online therapy comes in.
You may feel unsure right now about whether or not you can consistently fit therapy into your schedule, but online therapy makes it easy. Counseling that's more accessible means having more control over your day. It means more time to relax and be present with your loved ones. It means living life more on your terms.
Online therapy helps you do 4 things:
Take back the time you'd spend driving to an office, so you can use that time for other things
Relax in a private place that feels safe and comfortable to you, anywhere in Arizona
Fit counseling into your schedule, easily
Being able to choose where you do your therapy sessions can make the entire process easier. You can use your favorite device, whether it's a phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop. Best of all, online therapy is just as effective as being in person.

How much does online therapy cost?
Some insurance companies encourage folks to do online visits where they might cover 100% of the costs. Most other insurance companies treat online therapy like in-person therapy, so they'll cover the same amount normally expected. Rarely, insurance companies won't cover online therapy, or they'll only cover certain platforms. Self-pay rates are most often the same for online & in person.
