The platform is HIPAA compliant and Ms. Rhodes takes most major insurances, though you need to check with your insurance company to be sure that they will cover on-line counseling before starting, otherwise you will be responsible for the fee yourself.

Several major studies have shown online counseling to be just as effective as in person counseling. https://www.apa.org/helpcenter/online-therapy.aspx
