Frequently Asked Questions

Our counsellor | Insurance Coverage | Services Offered | Privacy

 Lifebulb counseling becomes essential when emotional or mental health challenges disrupt daily life or functioning. Through online counseling, individuals can gain insights into managing symptoms and understanding their emotions. Moreover, online Lifebulb counseling sessions offer a safe environment to address various life experiences, such as relationship issues, grief, and parenting struggles. Sharing your concerns with a professional, whether in-person or through virtual therapy, can often lead to significant progress and positive changes.

 Engaging in online Lifebulb counseling offers an opportunity to acquire essential coping skills necessary for confidently navigating life's challenges. Collaborating with a skilled and seasoned counselor or therapist enables you to gain valuable insights, discuss your worries openly, delve into your thoughts, and tackle various aspects of your life more effectively. Whether you're dealing with relationship struggles, career hurdles, or mental health concerns, online Lifebulb counseling empowers you to communicate openly and make strides toward transforming negative patterns.

 Lifebulb counseling offers a convenient option for individuals with busy schedules to connect with their therapist from the comfort of their own space. For those who may feel uneasy about meeting face-to-face, online Lifebulb counseling can be particularly effective.

Here are three reasons to consider trying online therapy:

1. Comfortable Communication: You can communicate in a manner that feels most comfortable to you, from wherever you feel at ease.

2. Flexible Scheduling: You can schedule appointments with your preferred therapist at your convenience, without having to wait for days.

3. Affordability and Confidentiality: Online therapy is often more affordable than traditional counseling and ensures extreme confidentiality.

The duration of counseling at Lifebulb varies based on your unique needs. Your Lifebulb counselors will take the time to comprehend your concerns, establish achievable goals, and craft a personalized treatment plan. The duration of therapy is determined by your commitment to the process.

Several factors are considered when determining the length of online therapy:

1. Therapy concludes when the patient accomplishes the goals set in collaboration with the therapist.

2. Discussion about the duration of virtual therapy should be included in your conversations with the therapist.

3. The length of treatment is typically tentative and subject to reassessment during online therapy sessions.

 Here are some popular counseling techniques offered by Lifebulb. However, your Lifebulb counselors will tailor a treatment plan to meet your individual needs.

1. Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT): Originally designed for borderline personality disorder (BPD), DBT is now utilized by many counselors to address chronic anxiety, depression, and other issues.

2. Mindfulness Training: Comprehensive mindfulness training teaches techniques to better manage stressors. This includes learning muscle relaxation exercises, finding joy in simple pleasures through practical activities, breaking the monotony of daily routines, and more.

3. Experiential Therapy: This immersive approach prioritizes action over conversation, allowing clients to explore alternative avenues of healing beyond traditional methods.

4. Relapse Prevention Therapy (RPT): RPT, a form of cognitive behavioral therapy, equips individuals with skills to avoid potential relapses. It is a crucial component of successful rehabilitation programs.

5. Mirror Therapy: Mainly utilized for amputees and stroke patients, mirror therapy creates a visual illusion of the affected limb, tricking the brain into perceiving movement in the missing limb without experiencing pain.

Lifebulb counselors and therapists specialize in providing in-person or online therapy, counseling, care, and treatment for a wide variety of mental healthcare needs and issues, including, but not limited to, anxiety, depression, grief & loss, trauma, PTSD, couples counseling, marriage counseling, life transitions, adjustment disorders, bipolar, schizophrenia, eating disorders, child counseling, teen and adolescent therapy, anger management, career coaching, life coaching, ADHD treatment, family therapy, panic attacks, phobias, substance abuse, virtual therapy, online counseling, EMDR, EFT, and many more.

Your first session with a Lifebulb counselor or therapist won't simply be a background or demographic information-gathering session. We know deciding to get help is a big deal and a difficult step. That's why our first offline or online Lifebulb counseling session with you will be about providing you with the help you're seeking and proving that the online therapy process can work with the right effort and commitment from both sides.

We believe getting access to a therapist or Lifebulb counselor should be quick and easy. So our process is straightforward. Simply browse our therapists' bios to find the right fit for you and schedule a virtual counseling or in-person counseling session online. Or call our office, and a team member can help make sure you're matched with the right therapist or Lifebulb counselor for you and your goals. Whether online therapy or offline therapy, your therapist will help you with an individualized treatment plan to help you reach your specific goals.

If you are experiencing an emergency right now, please call 911 right away. While Lifebulb is not a crisis center and Lifebulb counselors and therapists are not emergency services, we understand that urgent matters can and will pop up from time to time. You will have direct email and phone access to your therapist, who will make their best effort to be available to you when you reach out. Depending on your specific treatment plan, your therapist may provide you with resources to use or contact when situations occur beyond the scope of your online therapy or offline therapy work together.

When you book a session with your Lifebulb counselor or therapist, our team will email you a confirmation of your appointment date and time with a link to the virtual therapy room. Click the link and log in to the virtual therapy room a few minutes before your session, and your therapist will meet you there.

Yes. All of our Lifebulb counselors can provide the best online therapy services to our clients.

We use a HIPAA-compliant video Lifebulb counseling service integrated into our Electronic Health Records System to provide a smooth process for our clients to engage in online therapy sessions.

Booking a session with us is easy and flexible, with several options. You can call our office, and a team member can book you with the best fit-in Lifebulb counselor. We'll review insurance information and a few simple policies and email you a confirmation of your online therapy session date and time, whether in-person or virtual. Or you can select your ideal therapist from our website, select a session time that works for you, and we'll reach out to you to confirm your appointment details.

We have a flexible cancellation policy. Call our office or reach out to your Lifebulb counselor or therapist 24 hours or more before your online therapy session time to cancel or reschedule any appointment at no cost.

Lifebulb counseling is often a long-term process that can help in improving overall mental health. It has been demonstrated that online or virtual therapy can enhance feelings and behaviors and is associated with healthy adjustments to the brain and body. There is never a guaranteed "cure," but therapy helps make positive lifestyle changes.

We accept many major commercial insurance plans, for in-person or virtual Lifebulb counseling, including Aetna, Amerihealth, Cigna, Optum Health, United Healthcare, Tricare, and others. If you don't see your insurance listed, we would be happy to verify your benefits to see if we can accept them, and if not, we offer you an affordable self-pay rate.

At Lifebulb, we operate without any ongoing membership or fees. We believe that everyone deserves to receive the best Lifebulb counseling service experience. And we believe those benefits should come free of any ongoing out-of-pocket fees simply for engaging in online therapy. With us, your only session costs will be those set by your insurance provider or our low self-pay rate.

While many practices accept only self-pay clients or out-of-network benefits, at Lifebulb, we aim to keep your costs low by accepting most major insurance plans. Often the out-of-pocket expense per Lifebulb counseling session is a low copay determined by your specific insurance provider and plan. We also offer a self-pay rate lower than many practices for those without insurance or simply preferring not to use their healthcare benefits for in-person or virtual therapy.

At Lifebulb, we are extremely picky about who we hire to help you achieve your online therapy goals. But we understand that every Lifebulb counselor may not be the perfect match for every client. If your Lifebulb counseling experience is less than you hoped, we will help you get set up to see someone you prefer.

We take the responsibility of maintaining your privacy seriously during in-person or online Lifebulb counseling sessions. Lifebulb is considered a covered entity under HIPAA guidelines, which means we are subject to all HIPAA rules and regulations. If you have any questions (or recommendations) about our privacy and security practices, we want to help. Contact us at

Therapists that don't enjoy their workplace are often, unfortunately, unable to provide their clients with the best possible level of counseling and therapy. That's why at Lifebulb, our Lifebulb counselors are our top priority. This means that your counselor or therapist can provide you, their client, with the best online therapy service because they enjoy the work they do in session with you, where they work, and who they work with.

Our online Lifebulb counseling sessions are all conducted by our Lifebulb counselors in private spaces, and our video platform is contained within our HIPAA-compliant Electronic Health Records system, so your face, voice, and data are always private and protected.

At Lifebulb, our biggest difference lies in our counselors. Many practices, large and small, often put growing businesses before growing people. It may sound simple, but at Lifebulb, we treat our Lifebulb counselors like valuable people that provide a valuable service. What does that mean for our clients? While we believe therapists and counselors, regardless of where they work, do their best for their clients, we've found that therapists who genuinely enjoy where they work are able to provide higher-quality online therapy services to those they help. To that end, our primary goal at Lifebulb counseling is to provide our therapists with the best possible environment in which to operate. In doing so, we believe Lifebulb clients are best positioned to accomplish their therapy goals through in-person counseling or virtual therapy.

At Lifebulb, we are extremely selective about the therapists we hire because we know choosing the right therapist can make all the difference in our clients reaching their goals. Our Lifebulb counselors are all educated at the masters level and above and have received several years of hands-on training before becoming fully licensed clinicians. Even among the pool of highly trained therapists, we only work with those who align with our core values. That way, we know your therapist will go the extra mile to help you and offer the best online therapy or in-person counseling.

Lifebulb counseling has several locations for providing in-person counseling and is adding more regularly. We also provide telehealth or online therapy services for those who may live distant from our offices.

All our counselors are highly educated and trained and have received their full clinical licensure from practicing counseling. We also thoroughly interview each of our Lifebulb counselors, ensure that they pass a background check, and train them in-house to work with us. Additionally, we ensure that each of our counselors and therapists participates in ongoing education to continue to provide the best in-person and online therapy services possible.

It is important that our clients work with the best possible fit as a therapist for their specific needs. This is why we provide detailed bios of our therapists for our clients to review before reaching out to us. If you have a specific Lifebulb counselor in mind to work with, we would be happy to schedule you to see them. We also understand that our clients don't always match perfectly with their therapist, and in the case of a less-than-great fit, we will help you to find a therapist online who is a right match among our team and, if necessary, provide the best referral we can to someone more suited to help you beyond our walls.

A professional Lifebulb counselor is a master- or PhD-level mental health professional approved by a state licensure board to diagnose and treat mental health disorders. The exact name of a professional counselor's license can vary by state, but some of the most common are: Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC), and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC).

We do employ licensed clinical psychologists, as psychologists can offer services, such as best online Lifebulb counseling services and psychological testing, that many other license types are unable to offer. Many times, your counselor or therapist can work in tandem with a psychologist to provide in-person or online therapy and psychological testing when necessary to better provide for your specific needs or goals. In this way, we are able to better provide for a wider range of your needs.
