Special Delivery: Online Therapy!


Couples and Marriage Counseling from the comfort of your home. 

I’m excited to offer all counseling sessions virtually by Telehealth, a secure, HIPAA compliant video conferencing platform that allows us to connect anywhere with secure and convenient appointments. Through audio and video over the Internet, we can meet from your desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile device (iOS or Android). All you need is a good internet connection and a private space.

What is Telehealth?

Telehealth is online therapy. It has lots of different names, like teletherapy, remote therapy, virtual counseling, and internet therapy, but the concept is the same: We meet for counseling via the internet. Telehealth is the perfect way to continue your mental health care when in-person sessions aren’t an option. And studies show that remote therapy sessions are just as effective as in-person appointments.

The many benefits of Telehealth 

Social distancing/Quarantine/Illness

Whenever you need to be home for health reasons, you can continue or start counseling sessions. Having to remain at home can be stressful for many couples, families, and individuals. Telehealth technology ensures the same high quality and HIPAA compliant care as our in-person sessions.

Transportation problems

I-4 and local traffic can be particularly congested during rush hour and construction, and driving to my therapy office can be a challenge. Telehealth allows you to keep your appointment without the stress of getting there.

Therapy from anywhere

If my office is far from where you live or work, you can still take care of your mental health with online therapy. You can schedule a session while away on business or on vacation. You can even have your appointment in a parked car! All you need is a private space.


Busy schedules, sick kids, long work days, and precious family time can make it difficult to find time for therapy. With no travel time, online sessions make it convenient to keep up with your mental health care.

Physical limitations

If you’re injured or disabled, or if you’re caring for someone who’s sick or disabled, getting anywhere can be difficult. Video therapy takes care of both your physical and mental health needs.

The comfort of home

Sometimes talking about personal issues can be uncomfortable. Remote therapy lets you feel relaxed in your familiar surroundings (maybe even in pajamas!) so you’re more inclined to speak openly about relationship problems, stress, abuse, anxiety, loss, or sadness.

Confidential and secure

Telehealth assures confidentiality with a secure connection. On a desktop or laptop, all you do is click on the appointment link in your email. On a smart phone or tablet, download the Telehealth by SimplePractice app and click on the link.

Who can benefit from Telehealth?

Online therapy is great for individuals and couples, whether you’re alone or working with your partner to improve your relationship. Couples counseling for one is also ideal for Telehealth sessions.
