  •           Reduced cost: Online therapy eliminates the costs associated with travel time and gas.
  •           More consistent therapy: Online therapy decreases absences due to poor weather conditions or sickness, allowing clients to participate in therapy on a regular basis.
  •           More intense therapy: Online therapy can be scheduled more frequently, as clients do not have to commute long distances.
  •           Increased progress: Since online therapy provides more intense therapy, it can accelerate progress.
  •           Better access to specialists: Online therapy can allow individuals in remote areas to get help from specialists who may not be available in their geographic location.
  •           Psychological comfort: Online therapy can help with eliminating the social stigma related to receiving mental counseling or other therapy.
  •           Flexibility: Clients have access to more specialists and can select the specialists who can work with their schedules.
