Frequently Asked Questions
Can therapy be done online?
Yes, therapy can be done online. The difference between online therapy and in-person therapy is where the therapy session takes place. With online therapy, you still talk to a licensed and professional therapist, you still have set appointments, and you still get the emotional support that you are seeking. Having the option to do therapy online has further expanded accessibility to therapy that was previously impossible.
Some of the most notable benefits of online therapy are:
- Good option for remote areas
- Treatment is more accessible
What can an online therapist help treat?
An online therapist can treat almost everything that an in-person therapist can. Online therapists have the same certification, education, and training, and provide the emotional support you are seeking. Online therapists give emotional support to people who just want to talk about what they are going through, as well as treating mental health conditions such as:
- COVID-19 related anxiety
Who Is PlushCare’s online therapy for?
PlushCare’s online therapy is for people who are over 18 that are seeking emotional support and mental health improvement. Online treatment with PlushCare is not for everyone, but will be a good fit for most people. PlushCare offers convenient and affordable therapy so you can get the support you are looking for.
Who Is PlushCare’s online therapy not for?
Yes, some people would not benefit from online therapy. Online therapy can be great for some people, and will meet most people’s needs. However, it is limited in some ways, and therapists cannot give the amount of care and support needed to treat some people with specific conditions over a virtual connection. If you are experiencing any of the following, in-person therapy will be a better fit, and online therapy will not be suitable:
- Serious mental illness
- Clinical condition
- Psychiatric disorder
- Thoughts of suicide

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.
