Email/Chat Based Counseling

Therapeutic email exchanges provide you with the opportunity to send specific information through your “voice” of the written work. It allows you the time, energy and format for sending in your questions, concerns and thoughts. Emails are responded to within 48 business hours. Emailing can allow for exchanges of education, suggestion, recommendation, coaching and therapy. Emails are responded to with 48 business hours. The time between exchanges is extremely beneficial and meaningful as it allows for reflection, thought and pause from both the client and counselor. All email exchanging is done through secure and confidential email accounts. Please see Hushmail for more information on the security and the free service being offered.
