Have you ever found yourself struggling to find a therapist you connect with? This is a very common struggle for those who are seeking out specific mental health services. Blackbird Counseling & Wellness is located in San Antonio, Texas and this state is BIG. There are so many areas throughout Texas that do not have access to quality mental health care. If you are in one of those areas, or if the care available where you live does not meet your specific needs, telehealth may be the solution.
Telehealth Counseling allows you utilize your phone or computer to gain access to counselors who live outside your immediate area. The counselor uses this technology to provide mental health services from a distance. It allows you to seek out therapy from the comfort of your own home or office space. This arrangement can also be a great fit for clients who are unable to leave work for sessions, and want schedule their care during their lunch break without factoring in commute time.
It is important to note that this method of treatment may not be appropriate for every client. The clinician will conduct a consultation call prior to the start of treatment to ensure that this is a good therapeutic fit for you. Generally, those who are experiencing suicidal thoughts or altered mental status are not well suited to telehealth services. Also, the clinician can only provide telehealth services to residents of the state in which the clinician is licensed - for Blackbird Counseling & Wellness, this means you have to live in Texas to request therapy with our clinicians.
