"I believe that we all do our best - every day - as life brings frustration, stress, and even suffering. We work so hard to get rid of our pain, yet many of our "feel better" strategies have hidden expiration dates. Inevitably distress returns, or worsens. And- as an ACT therapist (and practitioner) - I believe that your ideal life is possible. We just have to (compassionately) give up the notion that we must wait until we're free from pain to begin living that big, full life. We have to kindly show ourselves that our dreams are possible- starting right now. "

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Iowa, this list of Teletherapyists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Iowa listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.

Please discuss with the professional the app you'd like to use e.g. Zoom, Skype, FaceTime, Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp. Professionals sometimes prefer HIPAA tailored apps such as Zoom, VSee or Doxy.me.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Iowa are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Iowa

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Iowa you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Iowa and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Iowa or family therapy in Iowa.
