Receive Affordable Online Therapy Today!

Affordable online therapy does not mean that the services you receive are any less valuable. Additionally, working with an intern level counselor tends to offer a different reward than many people consider: she brings a fresh and understanding perspective.

Intern Level Therapists are actively learning, therefore the skills they apply are fresh in their minds and they are always backed by a certified supervisor. That’s like having two therapists work with you for the price of one! Online therapy, sometimes referred to as tele-therapy or virtual counseling, involves accessing mental health support through video and phone sessions from the comfort of your own home. At Mind by Design, we utilize HIPAA-compliant video platforms, ensuring the highest level of privacy and confidentiality for our clients. Because of this, online therapy has become an increasingly popular choice for individuals seeking counseling services
