Advances in telecommunications and information technology have made it increasingly possible to offer mental health care services over the Internet. I am now offering online counseling via secure video conferencing.
Online counseling has its benefits and drawbacks and will not be appropriate for everyone. The obvious benefit is convenience. The drawbacks are mostly due to the limitations of the technology, potential security issues, jurisdictional issues (e.g. licensing laws), and safety.
If you are interested in exploring this treatment option, please let me know through my appointment inquiry form. At present, this may only be available as a self-pay option and for individuals who have no significant safety concerns (e.g., suicidal or homicidal ideation, active substance abuse, or serious mental illness).
