Video and Telephone Counseling Options
Consistent and meaningful contact between an individual and their therapist lays the foundation for growth in therapy. However, life often presents barriers that can make it difficult to make it in to an office.
Because many of my clients are also managing ongoing physical health concerns, I understand the importance of having alternative ways of entering therapy. I currently offer online video-based and live-chat counseling as well as telephone counseling to clients who are unable to attend therapy in-person. I have worked with multiple tele-health platforms over the past several years, and additionally provide trainings to mental health organizations regarding ethical and professional approaches to providing teletherapy. I am currently serving as Clinical Director to a startup Online Counseling platform set to launch in early 2020.

When individuals are interested in regular daily messages beyond a weekly appointment, I am additionally available through BetterHelp. This platform allows you to message your counselor 24/7 and receive both real-time and asynchronous communication. For more information, find my counselor profile here.
