Therapist Assisted Online

What is TAO?

  • TAO is an interactive, web-based program that provides well-researched and highly effective strategies to help overcome anxiety, depression and other common concerns.
  • TAO allows you to get effective treatment when your schedule, or life, makes it hard to get to a regular counseling session.
  • With TAO, you will watch engaging videos, complete exercises, and meet with a counselor for a 20-30 minute consultation.
  • Exercises take approximately 30-40 minutes to complete and can be done on a smart phone, tablet or computer.

Contact the Counseling Center to meet with a counselor and determine if TAO is right for you.
