  • What is Online Counseling?
    An online video conferencing appointment

    Online Counseling takes place via online video conferencing and allows for a similar experience as our face-to-face appointments. We have online groups and individual counseling.

  • Who can participate in Online Counseling?
    All registered students are eligible, as long as they are in the state of Georgia.  Unfortunately, due to licensing laws we cannot provide services to students in other states or countries.
     
  • Is Online Counseling confidential?
    As confidential as we can currently allow

    We make every effort to uphold the same confidentiality standards in online counseling that we have in person. The nature of the internet prevents us from being able to fully guarantee confidentiality. We use a telemedicine software that is encrypted and HIPAA compliant, to offer the most confidentiality available at this time. You can protect your own confidentiality by making sure you are in a private space when you meet.

  • What services are offered through Online Counseling?

    We offer groups and individual services online.

  • This sounds interesting, but is it weird talking with a counselor online?
    Not really

    Most of our students say that they worried about online counseling being awkward, but most are surprised by how normal it feels once they experience it for themselves. It is a good idea to talk with your counselor about any concerns you have with the online process.

  • What will happen after I set up my first appointment?
    More information will be in your inbox

    After your telephone conversation you will receive an email from our office. That email will provide a link where you will fill out the first appointment paperwork. This must be completed at least 24 hours before your first session. The same email will contain a unique link to the online counseling room where you will meet with your counselor at the specified time. It is a good idea to allow a few extra minutes to log into the room before your first session. This will allow you to work out any technology kinks and get familiar with the environment of the counseling room.
