If you live in a rural area or you're looking for a counselor who can offer a specific therapy technique and there aren't any nearby, you may think you just have to settle for a counselor who isn't the right fit. Instead, many people have decided to utilize the global reach of the internet to get access to a counselor who can help them lead a fulfilling life. If you're an Arkansas resident looking to work with a counselor specializing in trauma, who works with children, or want to see a Certified Family Trauma Professional, Prospering Hope Counseling is happy to offer online therapy sessions.

How Does Online Counseling Work?
To engage in online therapy, all you need is a device with internet access, a microphone, and a camera. Apart from how we see each other, your online counseling sessions will be very similar to a face-to-face appointment.

The encryption and privacy features meet or exceed all standards set by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health. In addition to the steps taken on our end to ensure the security of your private information, there are some steps you can take to prevent others from accessing your private information, including:
