What is Online Counseling?
Online counseling (also known as video counseling, e-therapy, telehealth, Internet therapy, telemental health) works much the same as traditional, in-office, except the sessions are conducted via an easy-to-use, secure video chat. That means, rather than driving to an office for scheduled sessions, you’ll log in to a HIPAA compliant video platform and you’ll meet with your therapist that way at your scheduled appointment time on your computer, tablet, or smartphone.
Why should I try online therapy?
- Participate in counseling in a space that is comfortable for you.
- Save time in your busy schedule by eliminating travel time.
- Reduce the need to take off work.
- With online therapy, you can work with the provider of your choosing without regard to distance.
- I see clients anywhere in Texas.
How is Online Counseling different from in-office counseling?
In my practice, there isn’t much difference. Although we won’t be in the same room together, I am still able to pick up on verbal and nonverbal cues through video, with the added benefit of being able to see you in your own environment. Often times, clients report feeling more open to sharing in a space that is already familiar to them.
There are times when online counseling is not appropriate and a different level of care may be recommended. We can talk about whether online therapy is right for you during our free 15-minute phone consultation.
Is Online Counseling Effective?
The short answer is yes. Seeking therapy can be a scary and intimidating and it might feel strange to participate in a way that is not quite how you envision it; however, numerous studies have found that in most cases online counseling has proven just as effective as office-based counseling.

I’m not tech-savvy. Can I still do online therapy?
Online therapy does not take a degree in computer science or any fancy equipment. If you’ve got an internet connection strong enough to stream Netflix and a device with a camera (smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer), you’re good to go. If you’ve ever used Skype, Facetime, or something similar, online therapy won’t feel very foreign to you.

Schedule a free 15-minute phone call so we can get acquainted. I'll ask what you're looking for help with, you can ask your questions and we can get you scheduled for an appointment when we agree it's a good fit.
WE DIVE DEEPER
During our first sessions, we'll get to know each other, build a therapeutic alliance, and get on the same page about your goals and how best to achieve them. Throughout treatment, you have the option to live chat with me once a week between sessions and have your homework sent to you with reminders so that you can build on your progress.
WE MAKE A PLAN
You are the expert on your life and experience. Together, we'll collaborate using your expertise and mine to create a plan that suits your treatment and journey.
WE ADJUST AND ADAPT
Sometimes things don't go according to plan. Or maybe things go so well and there's a new path the take. Flexibility is a key part of the process.
