Online Therapy For People of Color - By People of Color!
Frequently Asked Questions
Arise is an online counseling platform that offers you a comprehensive and affordable subscription therapy service. We change the way people get help with facing life's challenges by providing convenient, discreet and affordable access to a licensed therapist. Arise makes professional counseling available anytime, anywhere, through a computer, tablet or smartphone.
After you sign up, we will match you to an available counselor who fits your objectives, preferences, and the type of issues you are dealing with. Different counselors have different approaches and areas of focus, so it's important to find the right person who can achieve the best results for you. We have found that we are able to provide a successful match most of the time; however, if you start the process and you feel your counselor isn't a good fit for you, you may elect to be matched to a different counselor.
Counselors on Arise are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited psychologists (PhD / PsyD), marriage and family therapists (LMFT), clinical social workers (LCSW / LMSW), or licensed professional counselors (LPC). All of them have a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field. They have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice. While their experience, expertise and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 3,000 hours of hands-on experience.
