Welcome to Total Life Counseling, Inc. Teletherapy


What is Teletherapy?
Teletherapy is communication of any type that occurs between the practitioner and the patient through a third-party method whereby therapy treatment is delivered without being present in person. These third-party methods or platforms may include telephone, email, texts, and other online videoconferencing services.

How do I get started?

Make an appointment at 540-989-1383. Let them know you want a Teletherapy appointment.

For first time clients, complete and return New Patient Intake at least 24 hours before the appointment. All Teletherapy clients must complete and return an Informed Consent.

Pay your copay 

For your Teletherapy session you will need one of these:
       A computer with a webcam and internet access, or
