What is Skype?
Skype is a free software that allows you to have free calls, video conferencing and chat over the internet. If you have a computer and a high speed internet connection, you can start downloading the program and using it right away.

Important: Telephone and Skype counseling is not appropriate for people who are suicidal, self-injuring, homicidal, or who have mental health issues that require more intense care than one session per week. If you feel severely depressed, suicidal, or you think you are about to hurt yourself or someone else, call 911, or go to the nearest hospital emergency room or clinic immediately and ask for help.
How Does Skype Work?
After you have decided to schedule a counseling session using Skype, we will arrange a time for the session to take place. Then I will contact your skype number and we will proceed exactly as an office counseling session would proceed. Skype is similar to face-to-face counseling because the use of the video conferencing allows visual and audio communication between us on our computer screens.
How Much Does Skype Counseling Cost?
Skype counseling is currently not covered by most insurance, so the final cost must be balanced between the cost of your co-pay, and the value of not having to drive to a counseling session, and the comfort of doing it in your own home.
The fee structure is as follows:
All fees must be prepaid via Paypal.
