Therapy just got easier.
Now offering a convenient, private and affordable alternative to traditional therapy.
What is Online Therapy?
Online therapy, also known as e-therapy, e-counseling, tele-therapy or cyber-counseling, is a relatively new development in mental health in which a therapist or counselor provides psychological advice and support over the Internet. This can occur through e-mail, video conferencing, online chat, or Internet phone. Online therapy can occur in real-time, such as in phone conversations and online chatrooms, or in a time-delayed format, such as through e-mail messages.
It is important to note that online therapy cannot be considered psychotherapy and will never replace traditional therapy. In many ways, e-therapy shares some similarities with life-coaching. While online therapists cannot diagnose or treat mental illness online, they can offer guidance and advice to people experiencing problems in relationships, work, or life. E-therapy has limitations, but it is quickly becoming an important resource for a growing number of consumers. Despite a lack of research on the effectiveness of online treatment, e-therapy offers mental health professionals another way of providing services to clients.
How Does Online Therapy work?
Primary tools for communicating in online therapy include:
- Instant Messaging (IM)
- Real-Time Chat
- Internet Phone
About E Therapy
The mental health field has recently joined the countless industries already offering web-based services. Online therapy is a rapidly growing means of communicating with a professional, via the Internet by means of Live chat, email, telephone or skype sessions.
As in traditional counseling, online e therapy provides you with instant access at your scheduled time. In addition, online counseling is affordable, accessible, anonymous, and available twice a week on Mondays between the hours of 9am- 2pm & Wednesdays between the hours of 4pm – 9pm ( and/or any additional times both client & therapist decide) from the privacy of your own home. Avoid the uncomfortable feeling of running into a familiar face on the way in or out of an office or therapy clinic. Since you never have to leave the comfort of your home to meet with your therapist, your anonymity and privacy is completely secured. Online counseling gives you access to live professional therapist during stated hours in California.
Many people are turning to the Internet for professional therapy/counseling to increase ways to discuss life’s challenges, personal concerns or emotional problems. Some clients prefer ongoing therapy while others decide to try a single session for guidance on a specific matter.

Conducting an online session is simple. Dr. Wendy is available for Live chat, email sessions, phone or Skype sessions on Mondays & Wednesdays ( or any other times decided between client/therapist).
