    Current Employee - Consultation Specialist and Therapist in Olney, MD

    I have been working at AbilTo as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Work from home, set own schedule, select your cases, free ceus, serve people in their environment. Perfect!

    Cons

    Pay is low( but do get paid for no-shows (1/2)). You need to see lots of people to earn a living.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise the payment rate.

    AbilTo is not for everyone, but can be a option for flex work from home.

    I have been working at AbilTo part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    AbilTo is a good option for retired or part time social workers. It does require a comfort level with remote counseling. Althougth the pay is not high, the benefits include flexible scheduling, 50% reimbursement for No Shows and Staffings. Consultation is easily accessable and monthly training provide opportunites for CEU's. The clients are referred, and paycheck directly deposited into your account. So there is no overhead, no marketing, and no billing or administrative costs. Clients are high functioning with medical conditions such as Cardiac, Diabetes, Post-Partum Depression, etc.

    Cons

    Work is not gauranteed. The more availability you have, the more clients you receive.

    Pros

    Evidenced-based treatment models and flexibility

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is most of your communication with your co-worker occurs via email instead of an actual office setting.

    I have been working at AbilTo

    Pros

    They do not hire mental health counselors due to "boundary issues".
    Ill informed at the least, blatantly insulting at the worst. Personal and professional boundaries lie in the individual. Ethics are strictly enforced in the professional counseling field. There will always be those people who violate boundaries but to label an entire field is having an issue is absurd. I wouldn't want to work for such a close minded organization.

    Cons

    In a profession where labels and biases are therapeutically and professionally unacceptable-the company is those very things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Educate your recruiters in the mental health profession and customer service.

    Former Employee - Therapist in New Brunswick, NJ

    I worked at AbilTo full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    1) They supposedly find the clients for you
    2) Flexible hours
    3) Good online training
    4) Admin support is great

    Cons

    This company expects you to provide service at their beck and call and reserve hours for them without pay. If this is the future of online therapy, I don't want to be part of it.

    The senior management have provided misleading statements about service and ability to provide clients to therapists. 80% of the time their software for providing service doesn't work . Technology is outdated and therapists are placed to blame for cookie-cutter programs.

    The company also pays way below industry standards. They claim quality control in their programs but they have no idea what's it is like to use their own product!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update your technology, pay fairly, don't expect your contractors to reserve time for you if you are not going to provide clients and pay for loss time
