Web-Based Counseling Options

Aside from traditional face-to-face counseling, I offer web based therapy that includes secure email and/or video options. This may be a good option if you are out of the Tampa Bay area, if you feel uneasy about the in-office setting, or if you have difficulties with transportation or mobility. In this modern age, many individuals who would not have otherwise sought out therapy, have found the help they need by less this less traditional counseling method.

Benefits of online counseling include: more frequent interaction with your therapist than in a traditional setting, time saved traveling to and from an office, and saved money. Depending on the package, online options may be more affordable than face-to-face sessions. See below for a list of example packages. Keep in mind, they can be tailored to meet your needs.

Package 1: $95 per week. Unlimited emails to your therapist with at least 3 thorough and detailed email replies per week and some instant/text messaging. This package also includes the option of one 20 minute secure video session per week that is not required. Video counseling session can be substituted for an additional email from therapist. See note at the bottom of this page regarding unlimited emails, text messages, and emails from therapist.

Note regarding “instant messaging”, “unlimited emails to therapist”, and “detailed and thorough email replies”: All interaction will take place via a secure/HIPAA-compliant platform. Therapist will provide instructions for access to this platform. Packages with instant/text messaging include at least two text replies 4 days of the week. Responses may not be immediate but in most cases will be replied to the same day and within a couple of hours. Likelihood of same day response decreases after 6pm and on weekends. Although packages include unlimited emails to therapist, less emails with more detail and content in the emails to your therapist are more ideal than multiple emails addressing different issues. Email replies from your therapist will be approximately 500 words long (close to one full 12-font Word document, but may be slightly shorter or longer, depending on issues to be addressed.

Due to state and licensing guidelines, online/distance counseling options are only available to residents of Florida or those residing outside of the U.S.
