Where Technology and Compassion Collide
BodhiTalk Online Video Counseling is a confidential, HIPAA compliant way to participate in a psychotherapeutic counseling experience through an online video conferencing platform. Very similar to a Skype or FaceTime video call, BodhiTalk allows a client to connect with their counselor in the comfort of their home or anywhere else that has a internet or data connection. Due to the high demands on their time today, many people find it very challenging to get themselves or their loved one to a counseling session. Others may not feel comfortable meeting someone face to face and find it easier to connect with a therapist through a digital device. Still others may be worried about going into a mental health clinic because of stigma or judgement. Bodhi Talk gives you the ability to decide what is the best environment to enhance your own personal wellbeing during therapy and gives the flexibility to still work with a therapist while traveling, stuck at the office, going away to college or university, or studying abroad. It also gives those living in rural areas an opportunity to connect with a therapist in a way that may not have been possible before.
