Please give a brief introduction as to what you are seeking help for and what you would like to accomplish.
It is my expectation that you will benefit from our services, but just as in any other service, there is no guarantee. Our services are conducted using interactive and encrypted video, email and text messaging. It is important to realize that our services are intended to provide quality information, practical answers to psychological issues, and to work on present problems. Online based services may not be appropriate for you if you are experiencing any of the following:
Schizophrenia, Bipolar I/II Disorders, Severe Major Depression, Severe forms of Anxiety or a pervasive personality disorder, if you are in an abusive or violent relationship, or if you have serious substance abuse dependence.
If it is found that you are experiencing any symptoms of the above, I would refer you to an outpatient face- to-face therapist who would be a more appropriate fit or if you are currently experiencing any homicidal, suicidal, or psychotic symptoms: please call 911 or 1-800-SUICIDE (the National Suicide Hotline) or Tel: 00 33 1 46 21 46 46 (SOS Help, confidential English help line in France).
Confidentiality: The information disclosed during the course of your sessions is confidential, however there are legal exceptions including: child, elder, and dependent adult abuse; threats of harm to self or others, or if I am court ordered. Your consultant will take all precautions to ensure your services are confidential, however, be informed that transmission could possibly be disturbed or distorted by the unlikelihood of technical failures, or interrupted or accessed by unauthorized persons. We use the communication of double encrypted email accounts, an encrypted video-conferencing system (ReGroup), and an encypted text messaging service. Encryption provides a HIPPA approved high standard of security.
