Can Therapy Be Done Online?
Yes. Therapy conducted online is also known as online therapy (or teletherapy). Similar to a private in-person session, a South Dakota licensed therapist or counselor interacts with the patient through the use of devices such as a computer or smartphone.
What Do Therapists Use For Online Therapy?
Since the pandemic, more therapists are connecting with their patients through established online therapy platforms such as PlushCare. These platforms are set up with functionalities such as live chats, video conferencing, and messaging. They allow licensed South Dakota therapists to conduct sessions with their patients securely online.
Is In-Person Therapy Better Than Online Therapy?
It depends. In most cases, patients find teletherapy to be as effective as in-person sessions for a range of mental health concerns, including anxiety and depression. In addition, online therapy has benefits such as helping you save time, save money, and remain COVID-19 safe.
However, online therapy is not for those with serious mental health conditions who need to meet with a mental health professional in person. Online therapy may not be a good fit for those without access to reliable internet access or supporting technology.
What If I Can’t Afford Therapy?
It is always wise to do some research and shop around for therapy that fits your budget before you start your therapy journey. Always check if your insurance carrier covers therapy. Other affordable options to consider are community mental health centers and online therapy apps. Online therapy may be a more affordable option than in-person therapy.

Crystal Lake, IL
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.
