Why visit a clinical psychologist?
There are several kinds of mental health providers: psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, life coaches, and counselors (to name a few). All of these types of clinicians can be effective in different areas. Only a clinical psychologist is uniquely qualified to conduct psychological testing. The training behind testing can give a clinical psychologist a deeper and more accurate understanding of mental illness. This understanding is a foundation for providing excellent therapy and other psychological services.

Online Counseling Therapy via Skype:
If you are simply too busy to come into the office, consider seeking treatment with me via an online session. Utilizing on-line sessions via Skype may be an option for you. If you are experiencing depression, anxiety or ways to cope with venturing out, this may be an effective form of treatment. If you are intimidated by the face-to-face sessions of an office setting, you can feel generally more relaxed and in charge of the process. As a professional online psychotherapist, I am convinced that this is a wonderful option because the purpose of any form of therapy, teaching or coaching experience is to give my clients the tools to better manage emotional suffering, so that you can live a happier and more joyful life.
