Featured Services: BetterHelp Virtual Therapy

Meet with a therapist virtually through BetterHelp

Mental health affects every aspect of our lives. In the workplace, where stress and deadlines can take a toll, it’s especially important to pay attention to your well-being. When you're dealing with depression, stress, anxiety, substance misuse, relationship conflicts, or any challenging life issue, talking with a licensed therapist can help. 

BetterHelp is the largest online counseling service providing an alternative form of traditional, in-person counseling. BetterHelp enables you to meet with a counselor by text message, phone, chat or video conference. Therapists are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited psychologists (PhD / PsyD), marriage and family therapists (LMFT), clinical social workers (LCSW / LMSW), and board licensed professional counselors (LPC).  

Key features

  • Engage with a licensed therapist within 24 hours of completing the questionnaire.
  • Get matched to a therapist based on your unique needs.
  • Develop a one-on-one relationship with the same therapist throughout your engagement.
  • Access up to four confidential virtual therapy sessions per fiscal year, at no cost to you.
