- Offer or make available a trial or demo account
- Answer questions about their product and related topics (security, HIPAA)
- Are focused on the needs of therapist in private practice

Pros: Price, Feature Rich, Responsive to Feedback, Encrypted Video/Chat Option (extra cost), No Additional Claims Charges**
Cons: Relatively new to having group practice functionality
Standout Features: Secure Video/Chat, Client Portal, Customizable Forms
It’s a Good Choice For Practices That: Desire options for customization, a feature-rich client portal, and integrated video.
CounSol is a standout choice for solo clinicians who desire the ability to customize. In 2015 they introduced electronic claims filing and now also feature integrated ERAs. Counsol keeps it’s data collection to a minimum, while allowing you to create customized forms for administrative or client use. This means that you can create your own intake forms, assessments, and other forms for clients to fill out online. Additionally, any data not already collected by their system, can be stored in a customized administrative form that you create. Their upgraded notes feature brought them up to speed with their competition and made them a possible choice for solo practitioner, especially if they desire integrated secure video functionality.
CounSol is also rare in that, for the intergrated credit card services, users have a choice of four merchant gateways: Stripe.com, Braintree.com, BluePay.com, Authorize.Net. Their file export feature allows you to selectively export different information and/or files from the system.
** No additional claims charges assumed less than 50% governmental (Medicare, Medicaid, etc.) insurance claims.
