When it comes to your mental health and emotional well-being, it is crucial to find a therapist who you truly connect with in order to get the most out of your therapy sessions. However, if life events such as relocation require you to switch therapists, this can be a difficult and complicated process. Fortunately, at Symmetry Counseling, we offer online therapy sessions to Virginia residents, allowing you to receive private and confidential counseling in the comfort of your own home or wherever you have an internet connection. This way, you don't have to worry about starting the search for a new therapist and can continue the therapeutic relationship you already have.


What Is Online Counseling?

Thanks to modern technology, you now have the same amount of privacy when meeting with a psychologist or therapist virtually as you would if you visited their office. Through the secure and private platform Zoom, we offer virtual counseling that is fully compliant with HIPAA and PHI regulations. This means you can feel confident that your therapy sessions remain private and secure, just as they would if you were meeting in person. You also have the added benefit of being able to meet with your therapist anywhere you can get online without having to worry about waiting rooms, cancellations, or no-show fees. With virtual counseling, you can still meet with your preferred Virginia therapist without having to leave the comfort of your own home.

How Tele-Medicine Sessions Work

Think of it rather like Skype or FaceTime, but with more privacy. Zoom was designed to make live video meetings an easy way to connect but protect your confidential information as if you were meeting with your therapist in their office. The platform works with both Mac and PC computers as well as iOS and Android tablets and phones. With this virtual connectivity, you can meet with your therapist and skip over the waiting room and travel times. Just grab your laptop or tablet, find somewhere private, and log in to your account.


Who Needs Virtual Counseling?

Meeting with your therapist via Zoom is not restricted to only some of our clients. Anyone who wishes can request virtual counseling in place of in-person sessions. Some who find telehealth sessions beneficial include clients who:

  • Struggle with social anxiety or mobility issues - you may get more from each counseling session when you are comfortable and not stressed out, so meet your counselor wherever suits you best.
  • Travel a lot - whether you need one virtual counseling session because of a trip or you regularly travel for business, telehealth allows you the flexibility to meet with your therapist wherever you are.
  • Have packed schedules - many of our clients have time to meet over the lunch hour but lack time to travel to our offices, have an entire session, and get back to work. Instead, find a quiet place and meet with your psychologist or counselor virtually to save time.
  • Rural or out-of-state - as long as you are a resident of the state of Virginia, we can arrange counseling sessions with one of our Virginia licensed therapists online, regardless of where you are, so you don’t need to worry about traveling a long distance for every session.
  • Seek relationship improvement help, but meeting together is a hardship - this option is for couples and families alike. Telemedicine offers the opportunity to connect couples or families for combined counseling sessions, even when living in separate places.

Will Insurance Cover Online Counseling?

It might! You will need to check your insurance policy individually, but many insurance providers do offer coverage for telemedicine just as they would in-person sessions.
