Kim is a fantastic counselor/therapist. She is open, supportive, and actually remembers more of what I share than I do! She is wonderful about structuring our time to make sure we have set goals and things to improve upon rather than me endlessly venting and feeling helpless. She has been my favorite person to work with regardless of online or in-person and I would definitely recommend her. I feel grateful to be working with her.

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.
