Skype Sessions

“The principle aim of psychotherapy is not to transport one to an impossible state of happiness, but to help (the client) acquire steadfastness and patience in the face of suffering. ” – C.G. Jung

We offer Skype online counseling. There are many advantages to online counseling: it is convenient for people who have busy schedules; it eliminates the issues and cost of transportation; it can make the therapeutic process easier for people who have physical disabilities or those who are more comfortable with the anonymity of interacting online.

Online counseling is for those who are comfortable with touch typing and interacting online. It is not for you if you are not comfortable with touch typing and/or interacting online.

Online counseling is NOT appropriate for everyone. There are issues which online counseling is not able to adequately support. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Suicidal thoughts/Intent
  • Thoughts of harming yourself or others
  • Acute psychiatric episodes such as psychosis
  • Intoxicated or drugged states

If you are experiencing any of the above issues, please contact your doctor, seek the help of a trusted friend, family member, or mental health professional, and /or dial 911 immediately.
