Hello to You who is reading. If you are interested in receiving counseling services online please call me for a free consultation, quick chat, regarding the things you hope to work on and your availability. Online counseling, or better stated as telehealth counseling, is counseling offered through electronic means. I use only the safest and most efficient way to offer this service, through HIPAA compliant forums. In today’s world I realize not everyone has the availability or time to come to a counseling office and sit and formally talk about the issues presenting. Instead, there is a real need to have counseling in the convenience of wherever you might find yourself. Please call me to find out more!
