Online Counseling

Meaningful therapy sessions - all from the comfort of your own home.

Our mental health services are now accessible from the comfort of your own home through online video communication. We are happy to offer this service as an alternative to our in person behavioral health services. Contact us today for a free consultation!

Benefits of Online Counseling

Online mental health counseling, otherwise known as teletherapy, opens the door to healthy living by leveraging modern day communications. In the right conditions, it can allow you to receive the same quality attention given in a traditional therapy session, but on your time. We understand that sometimes life gets busy. Kids need caring, errands need to be done, and meetings need to be attended. Since counseling online doesn't require a physical rendezvous, you can feel free to connect wherever you are. This allows more flexibility than ever before.

Another advantage of online therapy is saved time and money. No longer do you need to drive to a physical location, burning precious fuel and dealing with traffic. Instead, you can simply connect with us online or on the phone. This ensures you're optimizing your time and money without sacrificing the therapeutic benefits of a traditional counseling session. Finally, people with physical impairments or debilitating sicknesses can still talk to a counselor. With today's technological advancements, there's no reason you should not be able to converse with a qualified therapist. Call us today to find out whether you could benefit from our online counseling services. We can't wait to talk!

Individual Counseling

There are times in all our lives when guidance from someone objective can make a difference in our perception. At Fuller Life Counseling, we see the relationship between the counselor and client as the primary agent for change. We want to be your partner in making positive changes in your life, and we believe that with motivation, a supportive relationship, and evidence-based practices that transformation can occur. It is our goal to provide a space for counseling that is discrete and confidential but is also warm and inviting.

Family Counseling

Families are unique, complex, and the most valuable human connection we have.  Most families face challenges at times and family counseling can be a great way to learn strategies for solving those challenges. We believe that we must be able to understand the individual needs of each family member while also helping the entire family unit work together better as a whole. Family counseling can help families with developing healthy boundaries, improving communication, and reducing family conflict. Our mental health counselors are eager to share healthy strategies for coping with common familial challenges ranging from daily disputes to dysfunctional behaviors.

Couples Counseling

Making the decision to attend couples counseling can be a difficult one, because it involves admitting that your relationship has some problems. However, we view couples therapy as a beneficial investment in your most intimate relationship. The purpose of couples counseling is to learn how to better communicate, how to resolve conflict, and at times how to rebuild trust. It's our goal is to work as an intermediary between the couple to help bring them together and plant the seeds of reconnection. Partaking in marriage counseling is possibly the best step a couple can take for rebuilding their marriage, and we'd love to help you along the way. Be sure to ask us about our online couples counseling options, too.

Substance Use Counseling

Substance use can become problematic in all areas of a person’s life, and we know it can be difficult to admit a problem exists. We believe that substance use is more than a physiological issue and are dedicated to treating the underlying, root causes of substance abuse. We will use evidenced-based practices to assist someone in addressing past trauma, triggers for their substance use, and learning healthy coping strategies. Our behavioral therapists are certified and capable of helping each client we receive to utilize proven addiction overcoming strategies. Like our other cognitive behavioral therapy services, we offer online substance use counseling for those eligible for it.

How To Find A Therapist Near Me?

What to consider when choosing from the many mental health services Bowling Green has to offer.

Perhaps you suspect you're struggling with a mental health disorder, such as depression or anxiety. You've visited your primary care provider (PCP) and they have identified some indicators that visiting a therapist or counselor would be beneficial. So, you've officially decided to seek counseling and perhaps even have a few recommendations for local therapists in Bowling Green from your PCP. However, you find that you're still struggling to sift through the various counseling services Bowling Green has to offer. You've thought to yourself, "Which Bowling Green therapy services are best for me?" and "Will talking with a therapist really help me?" These are some common questions people often contemplate before taking their first step toward seeking professional help, and they can sometimes be difficult to answer without careful consideration. So, here are a few considerations that can help bring clarity to choosing a mental health care professional.

Experience

As is with any service, experience-level of the organization is important to consider. Therapy is an intangible service that not only relies on your willingness to seek help, but the counselor’s expertise. Moreover, you’ll want to ensure the counselor you choose has rich experience in the mental health services field. Every counselor, therapist, or clinician has achieved at least a master’s degree in a mental health-related field, but experience level and evidence-based treatment models are arguably just as important as the degree they earned. An experienced therapist will be able to identify problems quicker, provide proven coping strategies, and rely on their vast therapeutic background to assist you in symptom reduction. Moreover, an experienced mental health counselor will be best prepared for helping you live a better, fuller life.

Insurance Options

After having determined the therapist’s experience is sufficient, you’ll want to consider your payment options. With the passing of additional state laws and increased understanding of mental health disorders, insurance companies are more and more likely to include mental health care in their policies, such as those eligible to see a Medicaid therapist. Of course, every policy differs, so you’ll want to talk with your insurance company about what’s covered and what’s not. Moreover, financial backing from an insurance company will allow you to choose a counseling service based on its quality rather than its cost.

 

But what if the therapist doesn’t accept my insurance policy? Most counselors will accept private pay (i.e. paying out of pocket) for their therapy sessions. While it may be initially more impactful on your wallet, it also means that you’re guaranteed ultimate confidentiality since your counselor will not be required to share potentially sensitive information from your therapy session with your insurance company. Additionally, paying out of pocket grants you the freedom to seek behavioral health services without having been diagnosed with a pre-existing condition. Otherwise, insurance often requires such a diagnosis which can limit your therapist’s treatment options as well as increase your insurance premiums. Moreover, considering the pros and cons of your payment options can help be a deciding factor in your decision.

Reputation

Finally, you’ll want to filter through your potential choices based on reputation. Satisfied clients are likely to leave good reviews for their counseling sessions. If there is true change in their lives, they’ll be glad to share about it. Furthermore, check out the reviews of the therapist or counseling services to make sure they’re a reputable source. When it comes to making positive life changes, you’ll want to work with a professional that has a trail of satisfied clients backing their credibility.
