Counselors reach remote underserved geographical areas, those patients and
clients who have travel limitations, and those who want increased privacy and
choices. Distance Counselors provide continuity to those clients who
travel and change locations and who wish to maintain a therapeutic relationship
with a known and familiar counselor of their choice.

actively recruits professional who wish to be networked with others conducting
distance counseling. The Association strives to maintain a data base of
qualified distant practitioners in both medicine and mental health to create
public awareness of their services. The ADCA will eventually serve as an
organization for standardization and credentialing in recognition of the
services offered by Distant Counselors who maintain high standards of care.
