A lot of counselors have been making the move to providing distance counseling from their home office, and a great number of clients and organizations have been utilizing it. However, there has been a lot concern about how clinicians are adhering to HIPAA, Ethical, and Legal standards. Also, whether or not clinicians are making efforts to keep their clients safe.
