Distance Counseling is a form of counseling that allows for services to be provided over the Internet. Many people sometimes have problems traveling to a far away counseling clinic, or they can prefer more anonymity than walking into a counselor’s office can provide. Online video counseling, secure chat or instant messenging, and encrypted email are all viable methods to help people get help when they need it.
Steven L Johnson, Board Certified – Telemental Health Provider (BC-TMH), has the required, specialized training necessary to offer all these services. If you are looking to get help from a licensed professional, but you can’t or don’t want to travel away from your home, then online help is for you.
