How Does Online Therapy in Louisiana Work?
Online therapy in Louisiana is very similar to traditional in-person therapy. When you attend your virtual therapy appointments, you talk to a licensed therapist about what you are currently experiencing. The only difference between in-person therapy and online therapy is that you meet with your therapist virtually, and have a remote online therapy session.
During online therapy sessions, you talk to a Louisiana licensed therapist via video chat from your computer or phone. Each online therapy session is 45 minutes long, completely confidential, and secure. From your first session, your therapist will work with you to help improve your mental health by providing emotional support, and teaching you tools and coping mechanisms to help you in your day-to-day life.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much does online therapy typically cost in Louisiana?

What can an online therapist help treat?
An online therapist can help treat many different mental health conditions. Severe mental health conditions such as serious mental illnesses, psychiatric disorders, or someone with thoughts of suicide would benefit more from in-person therapy that can give the adequate care that is required for treatment.

- COVID-19 related anxiety

Research shows that CBT has proven to be the most effective method of therapy, particularly for online therapy.

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.
