Online counseling is not the same as face-to-face psychotherapy and is not an appropriate treatment for all client’s mental health concerns. There are pros and cons to both methods.

Online therapy is not an appropriate form of counseling if your presenting issue is an emergency. If you are having suicidal or homicidal thoughts distance therapy is not a good fit.

Furthermore, if you are in a crisis, having suicidal thoughts, or if you are in imminent danger or a life-threatening emergency, we implore you to call 911 for immediate help or go directly to the nearest emergency treatment center.

You can find emergency resources here if you need to speak to someone immediately.

Traditional therapy would be a better fit to ensure your safety and provide more effective treatment.

We will conduct a screening prior to engaging in therapy via online counseling to make sure it is a good fit for you. If it is determined that you would be better served via face-to-face methods, we will assist you with locating an appropriate referral.
