Where Can I Get an Online Therapy Session?
Licensed Iowa therapists can connect with their patients through established online therapy platforms. These platforms allow licensed therapists to conduct sessions with their patients securely online.
PlushCare is one of the top online therapy platforms.
Is Online Therapy as Effective as In-Person?
Telehealth is similar to traditional in-person therapy in that a patient talks to a licensed therapist during a session. The main difference is that in teletherapy, the patient interacts with the therapist remotely.
In many cases, patients find that telehealth provides the same quality of care as in-person sessions for a range of mental health disorders, including anxiety and depression.
What Do I Do If I Can’t Afford Therapy?
Always shop around for therapy that fits your budget. First, check if your insurance carrier covers therapy. In addition, also look for community mental health centers.
If the above options are not available to you, explore teletherapy. Teletherapy is generally more affordable than in-person therapy, and in most cases, just as effective.

DR. Allan Marks has helped my daughter two times and we cannot recommend them enough. My daughter has ADHD and can't wait in a waiting room forever. This was the fastest and easiest way to get my daughter diagnosed and pick up a script. One time we used this service when no other doctor was open. Plush care was available! My daughter didn't have to even leave the house in 6 degree weather (would have made her MORE SICK). She had severe sinus infection and Dr. was not only clear and nice but looked up holiday pharmacy hours ahead of time to make sure I could pick up the script in time! AWESOME! 2nd time went just as smooth. Thank you!
Wow. Wow. Wow. This is so easy and quick. I had a cold virus that turned into a sinus infection. I pulled over on my way to a meeting to video chat w a doctor. He was attentive, kind, and efficient. After a few questions, he diagnosed my ailment. The call took less than 10 mins. Prescription was at the pharmacy later that day. I will be a client for a long time. Thank you.
I never review Apps, but this has been the quickest and most convenient doctor experience(s) I’ve ever had. It cost me no more than what I would have paid to visit an office. I’ve had two appointments and one was done in the comfort of my own living room and the second on my break at work. As a full time worker, full time student, and full time mom, the convenience cannot be beat. I met with Dr. Saremi who is very personable and kind. He immediately resolved my reasons for calling during both appointments. He was competent and trustworthy and valued my time. Can’t recommend this enough.
