People use the internet for everything these days. To order food, clothes, shopping, etc. Why not counseling? Phone therapy and Online counseling has become a widely used method of helping couples and individuals for some time now.
Online couples counseling is referred to by many terms and names. Internet counseling, video and web counseling, e-counseling, phone therapy, and many more. It can get confusing. I like to use the phrase Online and phone counseling. It is simply conducting a therapy or counseling session over the internet or phone with a web camera. It is HIPPA compliant, effective and very easy to use. If so many are using it for individual therapy then why not for couples counseling. Many times one partner may travel for work and not be able to come in for face to face therapy. Maybe you both are hesitant and would like to try online counseling first to see if you feel comfortable with a therapist.
My goal is to meet the needs of you and your partner. Help you to heal and find love and lost intimacy that you both once had. To help you understand why you have the response you do when things are said. Understanding that life is not personal and that you each are right when it comes to how you both see the world. Couples get lost in the blame game of who is more right than the other.

It is so convenient you do not even have to be in the same room much less the same city as your partner to conduct therapy. You can do sessions on the beach, at home or from your office.
