Therapist Assisted Online (TAO)
If want support, but do not have the time to attend therapy meetings, then TAO may be a valuable resource for you. Therapist Assisted Online (TAO) is an effective treatment for anxiety and other mental health problems that allows clients to proactively work on behavioral change while a clinician monitors progress on treatment tasks and symptom change over time. This is an online therapy option that Baylor provides.
For more information, visit the Counseling Center’s page on TAO.
