Online Counseling In Toledo

Online Counseling in Toledo is Becoming More and More Popular

Just a few years ago the idea of getting online counseling in Toledo seemed lackluster, even to counselors! But online counseling has grown sharply in popularity over the past year. Many people are curious about online counseling, but don't know much about it or where to start.

​Some important things to know about online counseling from In Session Counseling:

  • ​Online counseling is delivered by the same trained and licensed professionals that do face to face counseling.

  • The platform that is used for the counseling should be HIPPA-compliant; that is, in line with federal laws that help ensure that your private healthcare information is protected.

  • One common misconception is that online counseling is less expensive. Because the counselor is still spending the same amount of time as if the session were face to face, the price is usually the same.


​Getting counseling online has many advantages for people in different situations. People with certain health conditions, those with young children at home or are caring for someone, or those that live in areas where there are few therapists might find that online counseling could be a good option for them, as you can typically get online counseling from any licensed therapist within your state.

On the other hand, online counseling can feel less "personal", it can sometimes be difficult to find a quiet and private place for your session, and although technology has vastly improved, glitches are not uncommon and have to be dealt with. Furthermore, online counseling might not be appropriate for treating every mental health condition. In the end, you will be the one to decide if online counseling is right for you.
