Everyone needs a guide or a map on a journey.
Family Innovations is your guide through life’s challenges.
Upon determination that web-based counseling services are a good fit for you, a consent form to engage in web-based therapy will need to be signed. This consent will ensure that you are informed of the nature of the virtual therapy process, along with its requirements and limitations.
*Note: Your first appointment with your therapist is required to be in office. Online counseling is not available with all counselors or with all insurances.
As a client of web-based counseling, you will need access to the internet, a computer with a web camera, microphone and speakers, and a private area free from interruptions such as children, pets, phone calls or co-workers.
After your initial appointment with your therapist at their office, your therapist will send an invitation to your email prior to each virtual session with a secure link to access a “virtual office.” Your therapist will manage all appointments, as well as the security and confidentiality of each virtual session, just as they would with an office visit. You should also secure your space, shut your door, and treat it just as you would a counseling appointment at our offices.
Meet with your counselor and begin down the path of something better. Your counselor will make a plan with you at the end of each session to plot out next steps.
Exactly how long you should plan on going to counseling depends on a lot of factors. Progress in counseling is measured on different scales depending on your story, where you've come from, and what goals you have set. On one hand, you are complex and there is no limit to your possibilities. On the other hand, counseling may only be something you need for a season.
Whatever the case, know that Family Innovations is here to be the beginning of something better in your life.
