SKYPE ONLINE THERAPY
I offer SKYPE online therapy (also called telemedicine). Skype is a videoconferencing program that is free to download and works well on most computers and operating systems. Installing and using Skype is very easy. To enhance the efficiency of Skype, a high-speed Internet connection is recommended. Most computers have a built-in web camera and microphone. If your computer doesn’t have them, no problem. Cameras, mics and speakers are affordable and easily ordered through online stores like Amazon.com

While online therapy offers many advantages, there are also some drawbacks to online therapy. These may include, but are not limited to; the possible disruption of therapy due to technical difficulties, as well as, the transmission of medical information could be interrupted by and/or accessed by unauthorized persons.

Skype Isn't Right for Everyone
Clients who are experiencing suicidal ideation, or have attempted suicide in the past, may not be the ideal candidate for online therapy due the fact that more complete care is necessary to manage the presenting symptoms.
