Telephone consultations and private video consultations conducted through Skype are available.
These are informational meetings and relate to personal development issues and guidance as you work through the self-help exercises on this site and in my book, Healing Your Hungry Heart.
During your consultation, you can ask questions, tell your story, and sort out with me what kinds of activities might be helpful to you. Skype consultations are more like a workshop or seminar for one rather than psychotherapy and must be understood as such.
Skype consultations are not psychotherapy
On Skype, I cannot be the kind of healing presence I can offer you if we meet face-to-face in my office. Nor can I offer emergency services or respond to critical emotional events that may arise in a Skype client's life as I can in my private practice. I may make recommendations, but I will usually be unable to make appropriate local referrals for you that add to your healing work or support your recovery.
