We are now offering online/distance/ phone counseling and mediation.
This form of counseling or mediation is helpful for many people who find that traditional mediation or psychotherapy is not accessible due to an array of barriers.
As distance counselors and mediators, we use a variety of technologies to assist clients in conflict resolution, to function with, or grow towards, increased wellness in their personal and professional lives.
These technologies include telephone sessions, email, real time chat, or video based therapy. These modalities can be used in combination with face to face sessions or as the sole method of counseling or mediation.
Special Note: Telemedicine or Online Counseling
– “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 or even Internet phone (voice-over-IP).
E-therapy is a viable alternative source of help when traditional psychotherapy is not accessible. It’s effective. It’s private. It’s conducted by skilled, qualified, ethical professionals. And for some people, it’s the only way they can get help from a professional therapist.
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.
