Benefits of Online Counseling {TeleMental Health}

Online counseling {also known as telemental health, telemedicine, telehealth or e-counseling} is the use of electronic communication that allows the therapist and client to conduct therapy. Online counseling can be helpful for those experiencing stressful situations, transitions, anxiety, depression, handling emotions, setting goals, or would like support working through life’s challenges.

Online counseling can be used to supplement or take the place of in-person counseling sessions. Each mode has its pros and cons. I have clients who enjoy the benefits of both in-person and online counseling for different reasons.

So what are the benefits to online counseling?

· Transportation: If you don’t have access to your own vehicle, have transportation concerns, or are conscious of spending gas money, online counseling provides access to resources where you are. Traffic in certain areas or times of the day can also be difficult or frustrating to navigate.

· Flexibility: More time slots during the day or evening may be available during a time that is convenient for you. Also, online counseling is helpful during times when you may need to stay home but can still participate in the therapeutic process (minor illness, injury, etc).

· Accessibility: In-person counseling offices are not all created equal. Some offices are not ADA compliant or convenient to get to considering physical/mobility limitations. Sometimes our mental health symptoms make it hard to leave home.

· Weather: It can be unpredictable and at times dangerous. Inclement weather may even make it hard to drive to an office.

· Comfort: Let’s face it, at home we have our creature comforts. These may include a blanket, favorite pair of sweats, or our loving pet that we have access to while being in counseling at home.

Therapist

Hello! My name is Angela and I am the creator of Health and Wellness Collective, LLC

I am a therapist/counselor and coach based in the Central Florida area!
My passion is working with motivated adults who are looking for solutions to current problems, wanting to resolve issues from the past, or need a sounding board to figure things out and build a better future.

I earned a BA in Psychology from Michigan State University and a Master of Social Work degree at the University of Central Florida. I’ve worked with families on parenting skills and advocacy for children’s educational rights, children’s emotions and behaviors, and helped teens learn life skills while transferring out of the foster care system. I enjoyed many years working in a university setting helping young adults with life transitions and finding support. In agencies and in private practice I have had experience working with groups and individual clients of all ages from children to senior adults with anxiety, depression, illness, stress, communication skills, improving self esteem, relationship issues, over achievement, burnout, PTSD, and trauma.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and have an energetic dog {Finnley 🐶} that keeps me busy! I am passionate about self care and am always looking for ways to incorporate this in life. I love traveling and finding ways to relax such as reading, massage, and spending time outdoors.

I provide in-person and online counseling sessions for anyone in the state of Florida and international countries. I also provide coaching services to anyone in the United States and International countries.
