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.

Synthia is amazing!

C.R.·Jul 26, 2021


An absolute God send! Immediately she worked on building a strong rapport with me and created a safe and secure space for me to be open and honest. Throughout our sessions she displays a high level of insight and clinical knowledge. My time with Synthia has resulted in an increase in self confidence, self-value, and self-worth. She's also helped me identify unhealthy attitudes and behaviors while challenging me to change. The work continues and I'm glad to be doing the work with Synthia!
