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.

I am thankful to have been connected with Dr.Harp. In my first three sessions I opened up to Dr. Harp. I am convinced now that he had a strong sense of what he could teach me that would enable me to help myself. I am going to continue my sessions with Dr. Harp. He has explained changes I need to make to achieve my goal of better health, not just mentally but physically as well! For me it is going to take some time and with Dr.Harp’s help, my future looks bright.
