Online Therapy

Can I get counseling online?

Life is intense. You feel like you’re so busy, it’s hard to take care of yourself or think about what you need. You know that you want counseling, but how in the world are you supposed to fit it into your nonstop life?

 

Maybe you have kids, but there’s no way you can find childcare to watch them while you go somewhere for counseling. Or perhaps you feel like leaving work in the middle of the day leads to uncomfortable questions from your boss or colleagues. Or maybe you live far from access to counseling. You shouldn’t have to sacrifice where you live or work to move closer to a therapist.

 

While one-on-one contact is ideal, it’s not always a viable option.

Telehealth counseling may be the right fit for your situation.

Although not all methods of therapy are ideal for telehealth, research studies have shown that many people can create the change they want in their lives through doing counseling online.

 

At Intermountain Counseling, we facilitate robust therapy for Colorado-based clients who want to meet from the comfort of their home, car, or any space they feel secure. Distance and time don’t have to be a barrier to a more vibrant and whole life.

The counseling process:

Each therapy session is 50 minutes long. For best results we recommend at least eight consecutive weeks of therapy. We have found that clients who do not commit to weekly sessions for eight weeks struggle to find satisfaction in meeting their goals.

What to Expect

Week 1:

The first week is the intake session. The intake session is focused on helping demystify the counseling process. Your therapist will go through your completed paperwork and make sure that you understand what you are consenting to in therapy. Your therapist will also gather more information about you, your social, biological, and psychological history; and anything else that may be impacting your situation. Your therapist will make sure that we clearly understand your goals for therapy and have a plan moving forward.

Week 2 and the following weeks:

Your therapist will choose treatment strategies that best fit you and help you regain stability in your life. Each session will be focused on the therapist working with you to make sure you feel you are improving. This may require you to practice strategies during your week, between sessions.

 

Intermountain Counseling is committed to creating a safe, warm, and welcoming environment for you so you feel empowered and equipped to overcome the obstacles in your life.

Termination:

Termination is the agreed-upon ending of the therapeutic relationship once goals are achieved and takes 1 to 3 sessions, depending on your needs. Therapy should be a springboard into life; your therapist will work with you to determine that you feel your goals have been met and that you are satisfied with what you have worked on.
