A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step"- Lao Tzu......... Sometimes we feel stuck, overwhelmed, sad or confused. I believe mental health issues have biological, psychological and social roots. My practice provides medication management to address symptoms in addition to person-centered therapy to help identify and resolve negative perceptions and dysfunctional behavior patterns.

Online Therapy Psychiatrists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
