Announcement icon I have been practicing teletherapy for 7 years now, and encourage you to get in touch. I am happy to offer a free 15-20 min. consult.
It has been my experience that an important component of successful therapy is the therapeutic relationship that gets formed. I enjoy working with most people, and find that I am effective to the extent that a safe and trusting space can be created where my client is able to communicate whatever they need to without fear of judgement. I have also found that I am not able to be of any help at all, unless my client is invested in their healing process, willing to do the work that's involved, and is not looking for their therapist to tell them what to do.
I particularly enjoy the challenge of working with couples. I make a point of treating the couple, not either of the individuals involved. I do not take sides, but rather try to help each person see and understand the other's perspective.
I see clients through the Internet, using Tango, Facetime and Skype. This allows working individuals and couples to have their session from the comfort of their own homes. I offer a free 20 minute consultation, and offer home visits, by appointment. Introduction! http://youtu.be/WVCFzCuflaw What to expect! https://youtu.be/9Oa7G1pjF4g
