How does virtual counseling work?
Telehealth saves travel time for individuals with busy schedules or those unable to travel to our office. Many patients use their lunch break and a quiet space such as an office or vehicle to have sessions, without having to take additional time from your day.
To talk with your therapist via video, you will need to schedule an appointment with your therapist and then log in to the telehealth link that is sent to you. You and your therapist will then begin talking on video.
What are your fees?

Please inquire with your specific counselor regarding their fees.
