I am available for Telephone or Webcam therapy
Individual, family or couples counseling.
I am an expert working with
people of all ages and ethnic backgrounds who want help dealing more effectively with their:
- low self-esteem, insecurities, low confidence
- relationship problems
- grief/ loss
- anxiety, phobias
- life transitions
- work difficulties
- self improvement and want to learn coping for life skills
People might choose Telephone/Webcam Therapy because they want;
- Total and complete privacy and confidentiality.
- Or people might live in isolated areas, are homebound, or do not have access to therapy services.
- Or people desire the convenience of receiving counseling in their home or office.
- Or people want assurance that their therapist is highly skilled, compassionate, trained, and credentialed in the art and science of psychotherapy and live too far to travel to my office.
To schedule an appointment,
If I do not answer the phone, leave a message on my voice mail. Please leave your name, area code and phone number, and if convenient, a time when you will be availble for me to return your call.
I make every effort to return calls as soon as possible.
During our first conversation I will explain the therapy process and answer any questions you may have. I'll determine if your problem is conducive to being treated by Telephone therapy or I'll provide recommendations for the most appropriate types of treatment.
If we decide to proceed, I'll discuss the financial arrangement that fits for both of us. I expect payment in advance by pay pal or you can send me a check. We then will arrange for a time to do our session.
My fees are $100 per hour.
If you want your health insurance company to provide reimbursement for phone therapy, call the 800 number on the back of your card and ask them if they will cover this form of therapy.
It is my experience that they will not.
What are the advantages of Telephone/Webcam Therapy?
There are several advantages of phone therapy over traditional in-office face-to-face therapy. The primary advantage is the convenience and privacy of the telephone. Getting to and from a counseling office can take time and you never know who you'll meet in the waiting room. Another advantage is that you can counsel with someone that is not available in your area. Some towns have few if any trained therapists and, even in cities, it can be difficult to find someone you trust. Also you might have a disability that prevents you from leaving the house or no car or access to public transportation to get to my office.
