Online Therapy has been around for several years and as individuals and couples are on-the-go, seeing your therapist has come easier to come by, with the ability to meet you where you are, virtually (*as long as you are in a safe and confidential space).
 
Similar to traditional therapy, face-to-face therapy will be provided, BUT you will not have to physically come into the office. Instead, you can do therapy in the comfort of your own home.You save on time, energy, gas, and some additional fees, allowing you put the additional funds into your mental health.
There will always be HIPPA compliant materials used because your confidentiality is paramount.
Important: TeleTherapy is not appropriate if you are in a crisis.  If you are experiencing Suicidal Ideation or have in the past, TeleTherapy is not appropriate. Please consider the following resources and traditional therapy in lieu of online therapy if you are in crisis at this time:
 
Please call 9-1-1 if you are experiencing a medical or life-threatening emergency.
