Online Therapy

Evans Counseling LLC offers outstanding outpatient behavioral healthcare and online therapy.  Online therapy is sometimes called e-therapy, tele-therapy, tele-psychology or tele-medicine.  For our purposes, use of e-therapy and tele-therapy will be used to refer to online therapy.  E-Therapy refers to an interactive process with a therapist in which you and a therapist use e-mail, instant messaging, in person, video conferencing or telephone communications for the purpose of bringing about psychological awareness and emotional support to make changes in your life.  In general, you can expect our treatment plans to offer individualized care in a supportive atmosphere whether online or in-person.  Our diverse professional team will conduct a thorough evaluation to help determine key issues.  E-therapy works just like face-to-face therapy in that it can be effective for obtaining information and feedback, and for making changes in your life.

E-Therapy Offers:

  • Privacy: Where there is no chance of running into anyone that you know.
  • Confidentiality: Maintaining confidentiality is our main concern. We offer video platforms that provide protection of your health information.  Telephone and emails are also confidential.
  • Effective: There are more studies that show online therapy is just as effective as face-to-face therapy and in some cases more effective. One reason might be that you are in your own comfortable environment.
  • Convenience: There are no waiting rooms, traveling to an office or sitting in traffic.
  • Choices: Generally more access to a wider selection of in state licensed therapists.
  • Financial benefits: With no need to go to an office, you save on time, travel, wear and tear on your car, fuel, no buses or trains, and childcare expenses.

The cost structure is as follows:

  • $75 per 30 minute session paid by the client (private pay)
  • $100 per 50 minute session for private pay
  • Some insurance companies will pay for e-therapy and therefore, cost will depend on your specific benefits. Please check with your insurance company to verify.

Concierge Therapy

We have recently added a concierge-style service to our list of ways to help our clients.  This type of therapy can provide almost immediate access to a therapist that fits your life and needs.  This is a separate fee structure and utilizes all forms of e-therapy.  Please ask about this service if you are interested.  Often clients need immediate help, more sessions than insurance will allow.  We are offering a way to help by providing extra services as a way meet that need.  This will allow clients the opportunity to access a therapist within 12 business hours of contact between the hours of 7 am and 8 pm MST.  The amount of sessions per day or per policy year would not be limited as it would with insurance.  Subsequently, this is a treatment product and service that is not covered by insurance and would be entirely paid by the client (private pay).

The cost structure is as follows:

  • $150 for a 30-minute session
  • $210 for a 50-minute session
  • $320 for a 90-minute session
  • Monthly subscriptions offer up to 14 e-therapy visits per month for a set monthly rate. For further information, please contact us.

E-Therapy is ideal for clients:

  • Who travel often for work or are otherwise frequently traveling
  • Who have mobility challenges
  • Who have hectic schedules
  • Who want ultimate privacy
  • Who want control over their environment
  • Who have an internet connection or data plan
  • Who are ready for change
  • Who are comfortable with computers, smart phone and software or applications
  • Who are comfortable typing

Disadvantages of E-Therapy:

  • Therapists are less efficient at assessing and diagnosing disorders or complex issues mostly because all senses cannot be utilized in some forms of e-therapy. This issue is much more efficient with video conferencing.
  • In some forms of e-therapy, therapists can only use information given by the client. Non-verbal and verbal cues such as posture, tone in the voice, and facial expressions are not always available or are reduced in some forms of e-therapy.
  • Some health insurance coverage is not available for e-therapy.
  • Medication cannot be prescribed.
  • Clients who keep printed records of Internet chat and e-mails are creating a second medical record. This may make the confidentiality of such records less likely.

E-Therapy and Concierge Therapy are Not Recommended:

  • For clients who need a higher level of care or multiple co-occurring biological diagnoses
  • For clients who are feeling out of control with behavioral issues. These issues ethically require more in-person support
  • Emergencies when you are feeling suicidal or homicidal.
  • When your issues are complex and causing a lot of distress.
  • When you have a long history of mental health related hospitalizations.
  • When your issues involve current severe substance abuse.
  • If you are abusive, threatening, harassing, and/or sexually inappropriate in your interactions with us.

Please Note:

We cannot provide services without payment. No billing arrangements will be made for these services.

Before entering into these types of therapy processes, please give adequate consideration to what you can afford in terms of frequency and continuity of service.
