Online Therapy

You’ve thought about seeking therapy for a while now, but you just can’t figure out how to squeeze it into your schedule.

You know you need to put energy into feeling better about where you are in life and you’re ready to explore options that will work for you and your lifestyle.

Every minute of your life is accounted for. From the moment you wake up to the moment you go to sleep at night you are serving your family, your community, your friends, or work. You’re lucky if you find five minutes in there somewhere to think about yourself and to try to meet your own needs. This go go go is starting to take its toll though, and you’re beginning to feel not quite yourself.

When you find even the smallest moment to reflect it’s obvious you’re not caring for yourself physically, emotionally, or mentally. You’re feeling worn out and beat down and you know something has to change before you get completely overtaken by your overwhelm. You keep thinking it’s time to see a therapist, but you just don’t know how you’ll fit it in.

You don’t want to have to leave work once or twice a week and come up with an explanation for your absence, but you already get home in the evenings with just enough time to tuck your kids into bed. Some early mornings might be an option, but you already don’t get enough sleep once you take care of everything at home. Or you may be a parent who takes care of your children all day. The thought of bringing them to counseling with you just doesn’t sound right for you and paying a sitter isn’t in your budget. You’re thinking there’s got to be a better way.

Well, we’re here to tell you there is. Telemental health sessions allow you to connect with a therapist online, through video. You can get the exact same benefits of driving to a counselor’s office from the comfort of your own home or office. It is possible to get the help you know you need while maintaining the lifestyle you’ve built.

At Urban Wellness we’re sure about a few things

Online counseling offers a safe space to explore things in life that may not be working well without you having to travel to your therapist’s office. It is a healthy and self-caring way to work on yourself and learn better ways to handle your thoughts, feelings, relationships, home, and work life. Together, we can use teletherapy to look at barriers that are keeping you from creating the change you are seeking and find the best ways to implement those changes. We can also help you manage the symptoms that are creating distress in your life, whether it be depression, anxiety, or relational issues.

You need to take care of you. It’s too easy to become buried under stress and to never admit how our choices are affecting us. When this happens, you find yourself turning a blind eye to how you really feel and how you’re truly coping with your circumstances. This doesn’t mean you can’t find a way to give yourself the attention you deserve. It simply means you need a modern approach to taking care of yourself.

That’s where Urban Wellness comes in:

Urban Wellness is a multi-disciplinary counseling center. Every therapist who works here practices a different specialty and is trained to meet the unique needs of the people in our community. We strive to provide well-rounded care to all who live in our neighborhood.

When You Seek Therapy at Urban Wellness:

Urban Wellness offers teletherapy for clients who would prefer to see their therapist without coming into the office. Online counseling is a good option for clients who have difficulty coming in for appointments because of busy schedules, lack of childcare, or who live too far from the office. We use a convenient, secure, and HIPAA compliant platform called to provide all online counseling sessions. Easy to use, all you need is a computer with a camera and mic as well as internet access.

At Urban Wellness, our mission is to help provide all of our clients with access to quality care. We believe everyone can have the life and the relationships they desire. It’s simply a matter of taking advantage of all of the counseling options available.

It is important to know that Urban Wellness only offers online counseling for Illinois residents. We do not offer online therapy for couples counseling at this time. Also, some insurance companies do not reimburse telemental health sessions. Be sure to check with your provider before scheduling a session. If your insurance does not currently cover online counseling, you can still seek computer-based therapy at our regular rate.

Here is a website that has up to date info on telehealth and the benefits of it.

Here is a scholarly article by the Journal of Affective Disorders that did a study on clients who received counseling in person and online. The study showed a significant difference in long-term effectiveness. Clients who received online counseling noted more of a reduction in negative symptoms than those who received in-person counseling.
