What is online counseling?
Online counseling is between a licensed counselor and client online using a confidential video platform instead of in a physical office.
What is needed?
To get the most of online counseling you will need a quite, private, and comfortable space that has a computer with a microphone and webcam. We will use a confidential video platform that does not record any audio or video from the session.
Online Counseling for Texas
Online counseling services are for individuals who are not located in Austin or who can not make it to my office for whatever reason.
I offer online counseling through a HIPAA Compliant platform called Doxy.me. HIPAA Compliance is concerning your confidentiality. Meaning that these platforms implement encryption protocols to protect information.
I can only offer mental health services to people located in the state of Texas.
Why choose online counseling?
Online counseling is great for many reasons: there aren't enough options, or good options, where you live, you travel often, you don't have a car, more convenient, and many more!
Who is eligible?
I offer online counseling to individuals 18 years old and up. You must be a permanent resident of Texas. However, if you are currently traveling for a short period of time you may still be eligible.
online counseling and traditional counseling
A lot can be said about psychically being in the room as counselor and client. However, accessibility to high quality psychotherapy should not be limited by distance. I provide the same standards of care to all of my clients no matter if they are physically in my office or online.
If you believe online counseling could benefit you or your child please contact me to setup a free 30-minute consultation. If we determine online counseling may not be the best fit for you then I will make sure to gather referrals sources for clinicians near you.
