Online Counseling

At Health for Life Grand Rapids

Online Counseling and Therapy in Grand Rapids, Michigan

Grand Rapids, Michigan is one of the many United States cities greatly affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19). This virus has shut down schools and businesses, leaving residents wondering how this pandemic will affect their healthcare and psychotherapy.
When access to healthcare is limited, online care options are feasible and convenient alternatives. For mental health, this means therapy sessions over a HIPAA-compliant video chat service. More people are becoming aware of services such as BetterHelp and Talkspace, but one of the best reasons about choosing a local counselor or therapist to work with online during this time, is that when all of this social distancing and quarantine measures are over–you can work with them in-person as well.

The best part about online counseling is that the therapists at Health for Life Grand Rapids and the Trauma-Informed Counseling Center of Grand Rapids are adept at utilizing technology to help you during this time. They can offer online individual therapycouples counseling online, family therapy onlineworking with children and parents online, anxiety and stress reduction exercises online, clinical hypnotherapy online, and trauma-informed therapy online.

 
If you have received in-person care in the past or want to start services with someone local, contact Health for Life Grand Rapids today. They will be able to utilize a HIPAA-compliant video chat service to continue services with you in the form of online therapy. According to research studies, online counseling is just as effective as in-person therapy. And the adjustment to working online takes most people as little as 10-15 minutes for people to get used to the new format.
If you are concerned about cost, know that most insurance companies are covering telehealth services in lieu of face-to-face sessions. Health for Life Grand Rapids will advocate and fight for you to get your counseling and therapy covered by insurance during this time.
