Online counseling has become a new concept and an option for individuals who want to secure their privacy. Research indicates that a person who is involved in online counseling is likely to be more transparent, open and honest. In contrast, in face-to-face counseling, a person is reluctant to share personal information, and is unlikely to be honest with the therapist. It takes longer to establish a therapeutic relationship in a counselor’s office than online. In essence, the quicker the issue can be addressed and discussed the quicker you can receive help and be on your way to recovery.
How does online counseling work?
Online counseling is quite different from live counseling. For instance, you have the option to do e-mail counseling, telephone counseling, or Skype counseling. The choice is yours! When you contact Dr. Williams online and describe your reason(s) for seeking services, he will review your correspondence and respond timely.
E-mail Counseling (per Exchange)
E-mail Counseling consists of therapeutic e-mail conversations. This service starts out with an introduction e-mail where we get to know each other. You can tell Dr. Williams what you would like to work on and how you are feeling. This begins the Online Counseling process.
1 E-mail = $35
4 E-mail Package = $125
8 E-mail Package = $240
16 E-mail Package = $450
Telephone Counseling Sessions
Telephone Counseling is for those people who do not have access to a computer and would like to have support in the comfort of their own home. This consists of a 50-minute session, one time per week. You and Dr. Williams will arrange a time to talk, and he will call you at the time of the session. This service costs $125 per 50-minute session.
1 Call = $125
4 Call Package = $400
8 Call Package = $725
16 Call Package = $1,250
Skype Counseling Sessions
Skype/Webcam Counseling is for the person who wants counseling without going to a counselor’s office. For this service you will need a webcam and a microphone. If you live in the United States and do not have a microphone, Dr. Williams can conduct the session with a webcam using the telephone for the audio. This is just like being in your counselor’s office, except you get to stay in the comfort of your own home. This service costs $145 per 50-minute session.
1 Skype Session (50 Minutes) = $145
4 Skype Session Package = $500
8 Skype Session Package = $825
16 Skype Session Package = $1,450
