Can I use video counseling if I am out of state?
In some cases. Your counselor is only licensed to practice within the state of Texas so you may only utilize video counseling while you are in Texas. If you have to travel out of state temporarily, or if you are out of state and have an emergency, your counselor may agree to have a session. Be prepared to provide your address at the time of the session, and a local emergency contact.

Can I use video counseling for my first counseling session?
No. Your initial session must be face-to-face for several reasons. At your first session you will be asked to sign a service agreement and you and your counselor will discuss what counseling can and cannot do to help. Also, you will establish a method of payment and confirm your address and identification.

Can I use video counseling for all of my counseling sessions?
No. Face-to-face counseling is still considered best practice for the counseling profession. We prefer to use video counseling to supplement face-to-face counseling, not as a stand-alone modality.
