If you live in the state of Mississippi and would like a convenient alternative to meeting with a therapist in an office-based setting, I encourage you to try my online counseling option. By connecting through audio and video over the internet, you can meet with me using your desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile device, taking the extra time and hassle out of traveling to a physical location. We can meet exclusively online, exclusively in-person, or do both. Research shows that online counseling is just as effective as in-person counseling. The system I use is fully HIPAA compliant, so you can be assured of privacy and confidentiality. I hold the Board Certified-TeleMental Health provider credential, which means I am specially trained in best practices to deliver professional therapy services through technological means and I adhere to nationally established standards in providing this service. For this option, you’ll need a desktop or laptop with built-in webcam and speakers and a 2.5 GHz processor and 4GB of RAM, a tablet device with built-in webcam and speakers, or a smartphone with at least iOS 10 or Android 6.0. You will also need an internet connection that is at least 10mbps. And finally, you’ll need to have a suitable meeting space on your end that is quiet, private, and free of distractions.
