Online therapy provides access to mental health services in situations where an in-office visit is not possible or likely. It provides an easy way to get the care you need in spite of any limiting factors such as a busy lifestyle, time constraints, disability, or illness. For this reason, I offer online therapy via a confidential video stream.
What's great about online therapy is that you can log on at a time that works for you and receive the same quality treatment as you would in a traditional therapy office. My clients have found this format of therapy to be both convenient and beneficial in meeting their wellness needs. I welcome the opportunity to work with you to help you achieve your goals!

Who is online therapy best suited for?
With the exception of crisis situations, online therapy is appropriate for most issues addressed in traditional therapy. People use online therapy to help with depression, anxiety, stress, work problems, and relationship issues. Additionally, because of increased technology in everyday life, teenagers and young adults may feel more comfortable with online therapy than more traditional forms.
Do you use different types of treatment online than you would in a traditional office setting?
All clients, whether in-person or online, receive equal treatments backed by research that are found to be effective in alleviating symptoms. You can expect to receive high-quality therapy with a focus on helping you achieve your goals.
Do I need special equipment for online therapy?
You can use a computer, tablet, or smartphone for these services. You will also need to have a webcam with a built-in microphone; it can be the one that's already part of your computer. Most importantly, you will need high speed internet for high definition video and audio.
