access wherever you are
Technology has allowed us to close the gaps in access for clients who may not be able to come to a physical office or who have a limited choice in mental health professionals in their location. Online counselling is provided via secure video connection and can be used to address most of the same issues you would address in person. Online counselling is perfect for when you are travelling, if you live in a remote or limited service area, or if you simply prefer not to spend the extra time driving down to a physical office. Services are provided by mental health professionals and are therefore covered by most insurance providers who would otherwise cover physical counselling services. Contact us for more information or to determine if online counselling is the right choice for you.
Online services are billed at the same rate as other counselling services.
