Who are the therapists?
Licensed, qualified, experienced, and accredited psychologists (PhD / PsyD), licensed marital and family therapists (LMFT), licensed clinical social workers (LCSW / LMSW), or licensed professional therapists are on the panel of 24/7 DCT (LPC). They all hold a Masters or a Doctorate degree in their profession. After successfully completing the requisite schooling, tests, training, and practice, they have been qualified and certified by their state’s professional board in the United States or certified by their regional country board. While their backgrounds, experience, and skill differ, they all have at least three years and 1,000 hours of hands-on experience.
How are the therapists verified?
We only bring therapists to the platform who are fully licensed and in good standing. Applicants are subjected to a background check and license verification.
Is 24/7 DCT right for me?
If you want to enhance the level of your mental health, 24/7 DCT can be the best option for you. We might be able to assist you if something gets in the way of your happiness or keeps you from realizing your objectives.

How much does it cost?

I signed up. How long until I’m matched with a therapist?
Self-pay patients can book an appointment immediately based on the therapist’s availability. Insured patients can book an appointment after insurance validation.
How will I communicate with my therapist?
You can get therapy in four ways:
- E-Mail / Messages
- Live Chat
- Phone Call
- Video Conference
How does E-Mail/Messaging work?
Once you have picked your therapist, you and your therapist can communicate via email. Email will be provided to you by the therapist during your initial session.
Live Chat Sessions?
You will sometimes want to have a text conversation with your therapist in real-time. This way you can still enjoy the convenience and privacy of messaging but also enjoy a “live” interaction that allows instant response and feedback from your therapist.
To have a live chat session, you will first need to schedule a virtual session with your therapist. At the scheduled time, log in to your account to start typing and chatting with your therapist.
What if I want to change my therapist?
Patients can choose to change therapists anytime or choose multiple therapists at once. There are no restrictions on the platform.
Can I go back and read the therapist’s previous messages?
Yes. You can always login to your account and read all the therapist’s notes to you. This may help you in reflecting and remembering some of the guidance and input that you received. This is one of the main advantages of e-therapy.
How long can I use 24/7 DCT?
This depends on your needs and varies a lot from one person to another. Some people feel they get most of the value after just a few weeks, while others prefer to stick to the program for an extended period of time. This is completely up to you.
How will I pay for my 24/7 DCT membership?
Your membership payments will be charged to a credit card on a recurring basis. If you accomplish your goals or if you find therapy with 24/7 DCT to no longer be helpful for any reason, you can simply cancel the subscription.
Can I be reimbursed by my insurance?
Yes, for self-patients can submit the receipt to FSA/HSA for reimbursement. We accept insured patients varied by state. Coverage and benefits for traditional therapy and therapy services change from one health insurance company to another and from plan to plan.
