I have been in private practice since 2009. Throughout the years I learned how to not only grow professionally, but also to grow the business of counseling. Doing so requires a willingness to identify alternative methods to deliver a service. A new and emerging type of delivery is to offer counseling over the Internet. Such Online Counseling was not a viable service 5 years ago, but today it is. The challenges Internet Counseling had to surpass included:
Regulations establishing Standards of Practice
Encrypted Video Communication
Slow Internet Speed
In the last 10 years Arkansas has taken a lead in addressing the Standards of Practice by defining who can/can't offer "Technology-Assisted Counseling" and how it is to be offered. Providers also have newer options for Encrypted communication, and can offer this security at no additional cost to the consumer. Consumers also have satisfactory Internet Access, allowing for high speed Online Counseling to happen. Today Online Counseling has addressed all of these issues and can be offered to almost anyone around the world.
