Telehealth (Online Counseling)
This service is provided to individuals living California and some countries abroad (this will be pending approval from country). United Kingdom, Japan and Mexico are approved countries where I can provide online counseling.
At the moment, I provide online counseling to individual clients only (no couples or families).
What is needed for a session? An electronic device, a private space and good internet connection.
How is this done? I use a confidential online secure video system, similar to Facetime and Skype, to provide psychotherapy. Sessions are 50 mins. The system I use is Doxy.Me. I can send you the invite via text (if you would like to use your phone) or email.
Can anyone do online therapy? This depends on what is going on. I will be honest, online therapy/online counseling is not for everyone. After completing the assessment, I will be able to determine if online counseling is an option of treatment with me. I will make clinical recommendations and provide you with referrals IF you do not qualify for online therapy.
Are the rates different for online counseling? It does not cost more to do online counseling/teletherapy. The cost is the same as the individual sessions, which is $140 per session. Sessions are 50 minutes. Reduced fee slots are available on a limited basis.
If you would like to find out more, feel free to call or text me at 818-835-5330. I would be happy to answer any of your questions.
