Online Counseling can be a great alternative for many people to meet for help and growth during the “ups and downs” of life’s journey.
Ideally, I like to meet with and individual or couple in person for a few sessions to begin building a relationship to help and then blend in online sessions to maintain consistency as well as resolve many barriers that sometimes prohibit meeting for counseling.could
Advantages of Online Counseling
Major studies show online therapy is just as effective as face-to-face therapy*
No waiting rooms, traveling to the counseling office or leaving work
There’s no chance of running into anyone you know in the waiting room!
With no need to go to and office, you save on travel and childcare expenses…and time!
Stay consistent with counseling while on vacation or traveling for work
I can meet with anyone in Washington State. No need to be local.
No problem…have time to talk at lunch or while on a break?
Higher prossibility to connect to work through an important struggle that can’t wait until the next scheduled session. If an emergency, first call 911 or crisis hotline.
Private Client Portal
What is Online Counseling? It is like FaceTime or Skype on privacy steroids! I use a HIPAA compliant platform for all aspects of connecting with you online. I provie an individualized “CLIENT PORTAL” that ensures privacy in every online connection.
All of my email communications are privacy protected through my business email
By selecting the “secure text” option on the CLIENT PORTAL, you will be able to communicate to me via text in a totally HIPAA compliant, private manner
My business phone is secured with HIPAA complaint measures including privacy of your voicemail
The CLIENT PORTAL will allow us to establish a secure video connection through your desktop computer, mobile phone or tablet. It will be important for you to be in a private location.
Payment for online counseling will be required before each session via the HIPAA compliant, online payment system through the the CLIENT PORTAL.
