About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Ms. Legrande provides excellent resources, challenges my thinking, and helps me develop weekly goals for myself. Any questions or concerns I have I know I can reach out to her and she’ll respond in a timely manner. I feel supported and challenged to grow equally, a difficult balance to strike. I would not be doing as well as I am if not for Dana.
