Developing and running an online therapy practice has its challenges. Through our blogs, webinars, podcasts and newsletters, we work with our members to take your practice to the next level of success.
Guidance on U.S. State Licensure
While international online counseling has few restrictions, there are many regulations to be aware of within the United States. You may be required to hold licensure in the state where your client lives, though some states have relaxed requirements amid the COVID-19 pandemic. We track each U.S. state to give you up to date information on their particular guidelines.
Distance Counseling Credentialing Information
Many therapists will tell you that additional training can be invaluable when starting online therapy. Becoming a Board Certified-TeleMental Health Provider is not mandatory, but allows you to increase your competency and confidence when working with you clients. We provide information on some of the best programs to become board certified.
