To Feel Better
Without Getting Results?

Online therapy is an amazing tool for clients who want are seeking to incorporate mental health counseling sessions into their lives without the worries or stress of going to a physical appointment. Although it is recommended that you see a therapist face-to-face for your first session or two, we understand that this is not always possible and are willing to help any way we can.

Our clients love online therapy because of it’s convenience. It can take less time away from your work day, you can save money and time on travel, and you can also do it from the comfort of whatever environment you choose.

For some clients who suffer from anxiety, face-to-face sessions can be intimidating. Online therapy is a great tool to get acclimated to the counseling process in a way that’s most comfortable for you.

It can provide access to those who can’t physically get to our office. We offer counseling services to everyone in the state of Florida and depending on where you live, it can be a long commute.

People who suffer from chronic illnesses or dissabilities may not be able to easily drive or have the ability to leave their home so utilizing the technology to talk to your therapist can be a life-changing experience.

Confidentiality is vital for online counseling which is why we use a HIPAA compliant web service called Doxy.Me. In fact, the website is so safe that it is the leading site used by doctors worldwide to treat their patients who are unable to physically attend their appointments in person. Doxy.Me uses encrypted point-to-point connections to guarantee security and confidentiality. For your convenience you can download it on your desktop, tablet, & smartphone.

Frequently Asked Questions

1I’ve never talked to anyone. I’m used to handling things on my own. Aren’t people who go to therapy weak?
Not at all. People who ask for help know when they need it and have the ability to reach out. Everyone needs help now and then. You already have some strengths that you’ve used before, that for whatever reason isn’t working right now. Perhaps this problem feels overwhelming and is making it difficult to access your past strengths. In our work together, I’ll help you identify what those strengths are and how to implement them again in what is happening now.
2What’s the difference between talking to you or my best friend or family?
A Licensed Mental Health Counselor has the training and qualifications that are equipped to handle a multitude of problems. They can help you approach your situation in a new way– teach you new skills, gain different perspectives, listen to you without judgment or expectations, and help you listen to yourself. Furthermore, therapy is completely confidential. You won’t have to worry about others “knowing my business.” Lastly, if your situation provokes a great deal of negative emotion, if you’ve been confiding in a friend or family member, there is the risk that once you are feeling better you could start avoiding that person so you aren’t reminded of this difficult time in your life.
3Why shouldn’t I just take medication?
Medication alone cannot solve all issues. What medication does is treat the symptoms. Our work together is designed to explore the root of the issue, dig deep into your behavior and teach strategies that can help you accomplish your personal and/or relational goals. Sometimes medication makes it more difficult to realize the underlying problems so if getting off of medication is something you’re interested in, I would be glad to help you in your journey.
4How does it work? What do I have to do in sessions?
Because each person has different issues and goals for therapy, therapy will be different depending on the individual. I tailor my therapeutic approach to your specific needs.
5How long will it take?
Unfortunately, this is not possible to say in a general FAQs page. Everyone’s circumstances are unique to them and the length of time therapy can take to allow you to accomplish your goals depends on your desire for personal development, your commitment, and the factors that are driving you to seek therapy in the first place.
6I want to get the most out of therapy. What can I do to help?
I am so glad you are dedicated to getting the most out of your sessions. Your active participation and dedication is crucial to your success. After all, we only see each other for a session a week depending on where you are in treatment. It’s the work you do outside of our sessions that will really help you see your personal growth and development.
7My partner and I are having problems. Should we be in individual counseling or come together?
If you are concerned about your relationship, and you would both like to work with me, I would initially work with both of you together. After this work, if one of you would like to continue in individual sessions, I could work with only one of you. It is not helpful to move from individual into couple’s work with the same therapist because of potential trust issues.
