Virtual Therapy

In a 21st-century digital world, virtual therapy is becoming the "new normal" when it comes to counseling. The great thing about online therapy is that it allows for more flexible and in the moment scheduling options. If you are a visual learner you can schedule a video session or if you are more of an auditory learner you can schedule a phone session. Virtual therapy is an effective alternative mode of counseling.

I provide online therapy for Couples Counseling, Individual Therapy, & Family Therapy
