Online Therapy

Would you like to talk to a therapist online?

Now you can meet with a psychotherapist for personal counseling or advice, from the privacy of your own computer. 
Using the Internet, professional counselors are forming effective helping relationships with people like you.

How does it work?
e-therapy - is when a professional counselor or psychotherapist talks with you over the Internet, to give you emotional support, mental health advice or some other professional service. It could be one question, or an ongoing conversation; it could be by e-mail, chat, video 
Internet phone (voice-over-IP).

What are the benefits of online therapy?
E-therapy is a viable alternative source of help when traditional psychotherapy is not accessible. Its effective. Its private. Its conducted by skilled, qualified, ethical professionals. And for some people, it's the only way they can get help from a professional therapist.

E-therapy is not psychotherapy. It should not be compared to psychotherapy. It is not a substitute for traditional psychotherapy. Working with a therapist in person is still better. But many people cannot or will not see a therapist in person. E-therapy is a form of counseling which, though it falls short of full-fledged psychotherapy, is still a very effective source of help.

E-therapy directly addresses a major problem uncovered by the Surgeon General's Report on Mental Health (1999) which stated that while one American in five has a diagnosable psychological problem, nearly two-thirds of them never seek treatment.

Managed care and the mental health industry sometimes make it difficult for people to get the care they need. When traditional systems fail them, many people are turning to the Internet.


Confidentiality is of the utmost importance in psychotherapy.  It is essential for patients to have a safe and trusting environment within which to work. We try to create an environment that supports, facilitates and encourages honesty, openness and non-judgment.
