WELCOME TO ONLINE COUNSELING
Connected PRO Online Counseling allows you, the client, the flexibility, comfort, and convenience of receiving quality therapy from your home or office through encrypted, secure video conferencing. This service is great for clients who may be unable to seek face-to-face mental health services due to location, travel limitations, physical limitations, and/or other circumstances.
You do not have to be a computer expert. All you need is a computer with a web camera and high-speed Internet. Online therapy is safe and secure. Client confidentiality and privacy is of importance at Connected PRO. We use a HIPAA compliant online counseling platform designed to protect the privacy of all clients. However, online therapy is not the same as face-to-face therapy and is not an appropriate treatment for all clients. Clients are screened for the appropriateness of online interventions.

Is therapy confidential?
In general, the law protects the confidentiality of all communications between a client and a therapist. Information is not disclosed without written permission. However, there are number of exceptions to this rule.
Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse. The therapist is required by law to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person’s. The therapist must notify the police and inform the intended victim.
If a client intends to harm himself or herself. The therapist will make every effort to enlist their cooperation in ensuring their safety. If they do not cooperate, further measures may be taken without their permission in order to ensure their safety.
