About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Karen has been so wonderful in my healing journey. After experiencing some sudden changes and not coping well, a friend recommended BetterHelp and I was matched with Karen. She’s truly invested in my healing journey and is a joy to talk to. I’m so appreciative of the work we’re doing together and her kind demeanor. She often offers differing perspectives to help me better understand my situation and how to move forward. I highly recommend her!!
