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.

Dr. Nguyen has been such a solid support in my journey. I really appreciate his style of therapy. I feel totally comfortable to share any of my thoughts with him, and I also appreciate how he has guided me and give me feedback when I asked for it. I have had 3 therapists so far and never have I seen and enjoyed a therapist like him before!

Dr. Nguyen has been absolutely fantastic to work with. I leave each session with practical tips and strategies for how to improve my behavior. What I love most is the tailored guidance, unique to the situation and context I’m sharing. Every week, I look forward to our sessions

Dr. Nguyen is just a gem :) First and foremost, we just click and vibe. He makes me feel at ease and it's refreshing to know that I can just be myself during our sessions. He's super compassionate and understanding and also seems very passionate about his work. I always look forward to our sessions and have been amazed at the tremendous headway we've made after each session! I'm also extremely grateful that he's able to identify with my Asian-American upbringing (this was the only downside I had with my last therapist). This has helped tremendously when covering certain areas such as family dynamics. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Dr. Nguyen. He's been a breath of fresh air in my life.... so THANK YOU Dr. Nguyen!!
