MDLIVE gives you access to only the most trustworthy professionals. Our therapists are all licensed and thoroughly screened. You can browse our network of therapists, read their profiles, check their credentials, and choose the therapist with whom you would like to speak.

You can talk to your therapist when it’s convenient for you—during your lunch hour, evenings and weekends, or while your kids are sleeping. With MDLIVE, you no longer need to rearrange your schedule or travel to an office to meet with a therapist.

Teletherapy works just as well, if not better, than face-to-face sessions; but don’t take our word for it!Numerous studies have shown that teletherapy is effective. In a 2013 study conducted by the University of Zurich, 57% of online participants completed the course depression free, compared to only 42% of participants who saw a therapist in person. Since it’s easier to see a therapist on your schedule, it’s easier to follow through with your recommended sessions.

Teletherapy is a great option if you’re seeking a convenient, effective and affordable way to get care. When you’re on the go or if you’re just too busy to make regular office visits, teletherapy makes getting care easy. Our therapists can help you identify problems in your life, pursue practical solutions to those problems, and navigate any obstacles that come up along the way. We also have professionals that specialize in more specific issues, such as: stress, anxiety, depression, addiction, marriage counseling, LBGT issues, parenting and more.

Costs will vary, as the price to set up a session with an MDLIVE therapist is based on applicable copay, coinsurance, or deductibles. MDLIVE only asks you to pay when you schedule a session, so you won’t get tied into any recurring membership payments.

Many people avoid getting professional help because it can be so expensive. Getting care online means you save on other costs that come along with office visits, like gas, travel or childcare.
