If you feel like you're lacking purpose, desire healthier relationships, want a great relationship with food, or lack positive coping for success in life, then you're in the right place. You might write yourself off as lazy or beat yourself up for not having it all together. What I've come to find is that people like you DO have it together, but seeing that you're enough includes chipping away at the thick wall of protection you've built. This is what I love, and what I'm good at. Together, we can help you to feel happier and healthier in every aspect of life, as well as full of the self-love that you so badly deserve. We got this.

What makes counseling work? A study found that resilience, relationship and faith make a difference. Together we can figure out your capacity for resilience - yes you have a capacity for change. One of the best things about counseling is building relationship. You can't know someone without allowing them to know you. Building that relationship is my primary focus and greatest strength. Believing that change is possible and using that belief can help your process. What are your values and beliefs? How do they guide you? I use my faith in my process, I will encourage you to use yours, whatever it may be - all are welcome.

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
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.

So if you're a client in Columbia, this list of Teletherapyists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Columbia listed first.

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.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Columbia are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Columbia

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Columbia you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Columbia and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Columbia or family therapy in Columbia.
