HOW IT WORKS

Although we offer two types of online contact, e-mail and direct online chat, our preferred method is direct online chat. So the first step is to send an email to schedule and appointment time. This way we will be certain to be online to chat with you and conduct our session.

eChat is a simple and effective process, which enables immediate and direct chat similar to that of a "chat room".

THERAPEUTIC APPROACH

My psychotherapeutic approach is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. However, depending on the individual needs of the client, I may pull from other therapeutic approaches.

My psychotherapeutic approach skills enable the client to deal realistically with related transexual issues of self esteem, fear, depression, shame and above all, a successful transition

I invite clients to engage and enter therapy or counseling for problems such as: Martial problems, Difficult Decisions, Alternative Lifestyles, Career Change, Relationship Problems, Habits, Fear, Anxiety, Gender Issues, Parenting, Ageing Issues, Grief, Employment, Stress, Situational Depression, Social Fears/Phobias, Infidelity and Trust Issues, and others.

NOTE: Online e-Therapy is a private, inexpensive and beneficial approach for some individuals. At times, it is not for everyone. It is important that you have quite good communication and basic typing skills. Also, crisis situations are not always best handled within this forum especially if they are of an urgent nature.

Also, if you are already in therapy, it is not ethical to serve as a supplemental form of support without full knowledge and consent of the therapist that you are already seeing. On occasions, and during your time in therapy, it may be necessary to recommend that you augment your online work with therapy in a face to face setting. This will be to help and assist you more effectively.

FEES

For e-therapy we offer one mode of e-therapy, that of online 'direct' write (chat) sessions at $50.00 USD for each individual session (which are 45 minutes). If you decide to proceed with your online e-therapy you may prefer to arrange 3 sessions at a rate of $135.00 USD. There are sometimes you may want to do the session(s) via email. If this is the case the fees are the same as the chat counseling sessions. If you would like face to face sessions the fee is $60.00 USD per session. If you chose to schedule an appointment please fill out the therapy CONTACT form or send an email.

NOTE: Since the scheduling of an appointment involves the reservation of time specifically for you, a minimum of 24 hours (1 day) notice is required for re-scheduling or cancelling an appointment. Unless we reach a different agreement, the full fee will be charged for sessions missed without such notification.

As this is online e-therapy I will also request a copy of a photo ID (it is good to see who you are talking to). It would be great if it could be a drivers' license, passport or other photo ID that has your birth date on it. You must be 18 years of age or older.

During the course of psychotherapy it may, at times, be necessary with some clients to recommend that they change to conventional face to face therapy in their local area. This is an unusual occurrence.
