About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Starting at $65 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

I met Dr Braxton today, she was very understanding of my issues, I was nervous about the whole meeting but once we spoke things just started to flow. I’m very comfortable talking to her and right now I believe she will help me with everything I have to deal with going forward. My problems are over due for treatment but I believe she is the one for me.
