* Online Counseling by email consultation
Phone counseling is growing quickly, but most of you looking will begin with online counseling by email. This is the most popular form of online counseling, probably due to the simplicity. If you can send and receive email, you can begin online counseling within 24 hours (during the business week). An additional benefit is that you can take your time to craft just the right question prior to sending it to us for help.

We aim to be highly productive and encourage you to always come to calls prepared beforehand and with writing supplies handy to take plenty of notes for each session.

* Online Counseling using Voice Over IP (VOIP) - WE USE SKYPE
Anyone who owns a PC and a PC headset can download the Skype program from www.skype.com. This program is free to use for PC to PC calls and we've found the quality to be the same or better than a traditional phone. If you've ever used an Instant Messenger program such as MSN Messenger or AIM, or Yahoo Instant Messenger, it's essentially the same. Even if you haven't Skyped before it is very easy to use. This form of online counseling brings the personal voice into the therapy experience which can be a great connector and trust builder.
You may be accustomed to talking to others using your computer. If not, here's how live online counseling happens using the SKYPE program.
