As of 2015, you can access a virtual counselor online by visiting the Virtual Therapist Network or Virtual Therapy Connect, according to each company's official website. Both companies allow users to participate in private, secure video sessions with licensed professional counselors.
Virtual Therapist Network counselors provide assistance for a variety of issues, including anger management, developmental disorders, career counseling, social anxiety and substance abuse, explains the company's website.
Some of the benefits of virtual therapy over traditional, in-person therapy include scheduling flexibility, convenience and privacy, reports VirtualTherapyConnect.com. The site provides up to three online 10-minute consultations to help patients find a suitable therapist.
