It turns out that distance counseling or consultation (by Skype or by telephone) has been shown to be as effective as meeting in person in an office setting! This is good news for all of us. It allows me to live what I call a ‘portable’ lifestyle, so that I can spend time with family members around the country, and it allows you to meet with me from the comfort of your own home, and avoid the stress of travel, transitions, and finding a babysitter for your other children.
What On-Line Consultation is:
1. Personalized to your situation
2. Confidential and compassionate
3. Convenient, no office visit required
4. Flexible: scheduled weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or as needed
5. Affordable – you set the monthly rate that works for you
What On-Line Consultation is NOT:
1. It is NOT intended for crisis intervention
2. It is NOT for persons who are severely depressed or suicidal
Distance services (telephone, video conferencing, etc.) are for consultation purposes only. I am licensed as a counselor only in the state of Washington. If you live outside this state, I can provide consultation regarding the application of Dr. Greene’s Collaborative & Proactive Solutions model (CPS) to your situation, however if you require mental health or psychological services, please contact a professional who is licensed to practice in your state or region.
Please contact me by email to let me know of your interest in trying online consultation. We will first schedule a free telephone call to discuss your needs and to see if online consultation is a good fit. Then we will schedule our first appointment to meet via Skype.
Please give 24 hours notice if you are unable to keep your appointment. Full payment is due for missed appointments without 24 hours notice, except in the case of an emergency.
Rate for online video conference or telephone consultation is $40 per half hour; $80 per hour. I do not take insurance. Payment is expected at or before time of service.
