About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

This is my first time experiencing therapy as an adult and I’m truly blessed with Ms. Gwen and I’m so glad that I decided to sign up!!! I intend to continue the journey of learning myself in a healthy way. But prayerfully my relationship with Ms. Gwen continues beyond this!!!

Dr. Thornton's strong sense of purpose and humanity are insightful and inspiring. She is very easy to talk to and that isn't always easy while online and on camera. Dr. Thornton gets to the heart of the matter quickly--meeting you where you are. Life is short so that is important!

Gwen is knowledgeable, available, and supportive. She has talked me off the proverbial ledge several times already, using reason, logic, empathy, and compassion. BetterHelp is very fortunate to have Gwen on their team.
