Online Counseling

Healing wounds, understanding anxiety, and connecting in relationships…
all as close as your computer, phone, or tablet. 

Online Counseling: Reducing Boundaries to Healing

Online Therapy

Online Therapy, online counseling, e-therapy, teletherapy: all terms that describe the concept of taking traditional counseling from the office to cyberspace. It’s still live and interactive, but it gives you the chance to connect on your schedule. You make an appointment, and when it’s time you go online and click your secure link to be connected with your therapist. There’s nothing to install and you don’t need any more equipment than most people have: a camera and microphone. We do recommend finding a quiet place: an office, your car (not while driving), or a quiet room of the house. We can even meet at a park if you have a place where you can find privacy. 

 

How Online Therapy Works

We’re working on a video that will help explain this better. Please stand by. Well , not literally – we don’t know how long this will take. 

Online Counseling for Individuals

Instead of navigating traffic, finding parking, and waiting in a room – Covenant’s online practice allows clients to sign on from the comfort, privacy, and convenience of their technology.
 

If you are struggling with anxiety, trying to process trauma, or working to figure out life as a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP), we can help you receive healing, manage emotions, and connect in meaningful relationships. 

Online Counseling for Families

When struggling with our own relationship problems from youth, we can often find other relationships to be challenging – not knowing how to connect, having communication difficulties, and many times just trying to find your own identity in the relationship. 

Online counseling can also be done with couples and families – just with both people in front of the computer rather than just one. 

Do you feel overwhelmed? Disconnected? Anxious? Angry?

Troubled by the past – feeling misunderstood or overwhelmed?

Are these symptoms keeping you from reaching your potential at work?

Are they standing in the way of you connecting with your friends, family, or even God?

Covenant family wellness provides online counseling (also known as teletherapy or e-therapy) to adults and families in Columbus, Ohio and all across the state – anywhere you have a decent internet connection. Our specialty is dealing with highly sensitive people who are experiencing adult attachment disorder. These are people who have experienced trauma, separation, grief and loss, or just a lack of personal support from our family of origin. Many times this is because we are highly sensitive and don’t realize how to control this trait.  We find that later in life, these attachment wounds reveal themselves in our mental states – therefore we experience anxiety and/or depression. Also, we frequently are passed up for promotions. And many times, we experience struggles connecting with our own family of choice – and this can even spill over into our deeper connections with ourselves (self-esteem, self-worth, and shame struggles) and with God.

Engaging in online therapy with Covenant Family Wellness means having a trusted person who can walk with you through these issues, discovering what they are, providing the support you need and deserve, and helping you to achieve your goals. We use a mixture of thoughts, emotions, and behaviors to help address the whole person.  Give our online counseling a try to today by scheduling a 15-minute consultation for free.

We know online therapy can be a big step and we want you to have the chance to try it first. Schedule a 15-consultation to try the platform and meet your clinician. And this is no pressure – if the fit’s not right, you don’t have to continue. 

Book Appointment

If everything goes well, book your initial appointment. We’ll send you a link to your portal online and you can fill out all your documents online (remember trying to balance the clipboard when you go to your first doctor’s appointment)

You’ll click your link and be connected to the therapist when you both are ready. Your therapist will work to understand you and then develop goals that you can both work towards.  

Frequently Asked Questions about Teletherapy

What happens if either internet connection goes down?

That happens – and power lines go down at an office – but we will set a backup. We can reconnect by cell phones – either audio or video or we’ll reschedule if needed. 

 Do you take my insurance?

At this time, we are out-of-network for insurance. Between high-deductible plans, closed insurance panels, the lack of teletherapy support, and mostly some major concerns over personal privacy, we found it more beneficial to let clients control their own billing. We will provide a “Superbill” (a specialized receipt you can submit to your insurance) via email to be reimbursed for out-of-network expenses. 

What if there’s a emergency?

We’re based in Columbus, so we know most of the emergency services in this area. If you’re out of the region, we’ll make sure that get the names of emergency services and an emergency contact for you. If you are at the point of needing help, we’ll make sure that we can get it for you.

What Equipment / Speed do I need?

We use a professional microphone set up with headphones for privacy and have a pretty decent sized internet connection. You only need a camera, a microphone, and a connection 10mbs or better (most internet providers are at least this).  If you wonder if your setup is enough, sign up for the free 15 minute consultation and give it a try.
