What Makes Telehealth so Special?

Feeling squeezed for time? Nervous? Babysitter finked out on you? Let's be honest, making it to therapy can sometimes feel not worth the effort. Traffic, babysitters, distance, time management – is this really the best way to work on yourself? Or reconnect with your partner?

Telehealth counseling and coaching at Real Connections (for both couples and individuals) offers a convenient solution that can stop the anxious rush. Skip the commute, take off your shoes, sit around the table, get up into bed, or head to your in-home office and get the support you deserve, all from the comfort of home.  

For couples - Yes, telehealth with your TEAM of counselors or coaches provides the same proven techniques, the same teamwork, the same practice, and the same dynamic Real Connections co-counseling environment, with the added benefit of convenience.

For both couples and individuals - Secure and private. Expert therapists and coaches. Personalized tailored approach. Dynamic, round-table, discussion. And the kind of practice that will leave you at your best. Finally leave “Oh no! I Must Make My Appointment!” Drama behind.

Your terms. Your location. The best counseling, co-counseling, and coaching available. Telehealth.

Imagine:

  • Sweatpants therapy: No need to dress up or fight for a reservation. Spark meaningful conversations from the comfort of your couch.
  • Real talk, no distractions: Skip the crowded waiting rooms and focus solely on what matters – your mental health, your relationship.
  • Flexibility for busy schedules: Schedule sessions that fit your life, not the other way around. Early mornings? Late nights? No problem.
  • Accessibility for all: Get expert guidance regardless of location. Perfect for rural areas or couples with demanding jobs.

Stop settling for mediocre. Telehealth cocounseling and coaching will help you do your best life that you deserve as a united team. Love is a simple choice. It’s the relationship that’s hard. Don't let your personal self-care suffer either. We’ll help you make it and prove it every day.

Schedule your session today and reclaim some peace of mind.

Does couples counseling work?

Couples Counseling works like most things: Consider the time and energy you put into it, and that will give a good indication of how successful you will be. Part of the work will happen in the counseling "room." Then you are already home and can start practicing what you learned. We give you homework. We'll ask you to work on new relational things that challenge and improve your relationship.

Do we need couples counseling?

We are firm believers that everyone can benefit from couples counseling! Even as therapists, we attend marriage conferences, counseling, and retreats to better ourselves and our marriages. One of the best things about couples counseling is that your counseling and coaching team is not intimately involved in your relationship. They're trained to provide insight, challenges, and new ideas for handling relationship difficulties. All couples can benefit from couples counseling. If you and your significant other experience relationship struggles, let Real Connections help you get you to your best relationship.
