Debra offers online counseling and consultations through Skype and phone or via emails. While online counseling is helpful, it is not a good choice if you are suicidal or in major crisis. It is useful for support and direction from a licensed therapist.
Skype is a free software application that allows you to have free video phone calls online. If you have a computer, internet connection, and a microphone, headset, or webcam, you can download the program for free and use it right away (there’s a live chat option for which no additional devices are needed).
Skype counseling is an alternative to in-person office counseling that offers more live interaction than email counseling. When you are unable to travel to my Northampton office, it provides a convenient mutually-agreed time to have a face to face session.
Debra uses Skype sessions as she would use office sessions, creating a therapeutic safe space to do some work together. Again, it is not a substitute for in person office counseling, but has been an effective alternative. Please pay by Paypal in advance before our scheduled session on Skype; thank you.
Billing for Online Counseling
Online counseling cannot be billed through insurance. Debra accepts payment via Paypal before the scheduled session. Session lengths are variable according to the needs of the client. Fee can be negotiated beforehand.
