An Online Psychologist is someone who has a degree from a graduate school in psychology. As such, they’re oftentimes the same person whom you’d meet in their office. They’ve simply chosen to employ the power of technology to reach out and help their clients.
In this position psychologists are using what’s known as e-therapy or e-counseling to provide mental health services and therapy via the internet. There are a variety of ways in which they can provide this service including video conferencing, online chat, email, text messaging, or internet phone.
Regardless of how this therapy is performed it’s meant to help you with the same mental conditions for which you’d receive help in a therapist’s office. Through talk therapy they can help you with things like anger, depression, and anxiety. However, since you don’t have to go to their office you’ll save yourself time by seeing one.
