Online Therapy

Quality care for mental health shouldn’t be limited by geography. That’s why Inner Balance Counseling offers online options for those who can’t go into an office.

Is Online Therapy as Effective as In-Person Therapy?

Because it’s relatively new, a lot of people have been asking, “is online therapy effective?” The truth is, online therapy is just as helpful and valuable as in-person sessions. 

A study carried out on clients with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) showed that outcomes and patient satisfaction achieved via online counseling were comparable to in-person sessions. We now know that those who received treatment via  online counseling and in-person treatment have similar outcomes.

Can You Work on the Same Issues During Online Therapy and In-Person Therapy?

Some people think it is harder to work on “real issues” with online counseling. However, this is not true. Studies have shown that online counseling can provide the venue for people to get help who may not have otherwise.

Telehealth has proven to be an effective means to diagnose many mental, behavioral, and personality disorders, as well as hard-to-identify neurodevelopmental disorders.

What Counseling Services Are Offered in Online Therapy?

As far as talk therapy goes, there really isn’t a limit of what can be done online. Most counseling techniques that we utilize at Inner Balance require only an open mind, open ears, and your willingness to speak about your feelings. Trauma therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), couples counseling, and more can all be done online. 

Can You Do EMDR Online?

Many people don't engage in counseling because they think they can only do EMDR (Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) therapy in person. However, that is just not true. With more and more people working from home, we have now developed new and extremely effective ways to do EMDR during online sessions.  We can achieve just as much healing with EMDR online as we did in person.

How Is My Information Kept Safe With Telehealth?

Online therapy is completely safe and your data is kept confidential. Therapists are bound by telehealth laws, and all therapists at Inner Balance follow telehealth ethics best-practices. Therefore, you can feel free to let go of all your insecurities regarding online therapy.
