We offer Online Counseling to California Residents as an alternative source of therapy when limitations of time, mobility and location prevail. Our Online Therapy services at Narrative Counseling Center maintain the integrity, confidentiality and ethical standards of all our collaborative, strength-based counseling services.
Confidentiality: Our encrypted narrative counseling online platform, Counsol.com, ensures privacy and HIPPA compliance. It is the client’s responsibility to monitor privacy within their location. All information between the client and the therapist is held in strict conﬁdence. The four exceptions to conﬁdentiality are: 1) suspected child abuse, 2) elder abuse, 3) if a client intends to do harm to her/himself or others, and 4) if the client signs a release authorizing the therapist to speak with a designated individual.
Insurance: Narrative online counseling is sometimes covered by insurance. It is the client’s responsibility to check with their insurance carrier.
Client resources needed: A computer with video capacity, internet access, and a private space.
Age requirements: Clients must be 18 or over.
Payments: Prior to service.
