Dr. Shipman is extremely kind knowledgeable and she really takes the time to listen to you. She allows you to express yourself and get out whatever emotions you need without totally derailing the time. Her expertise shines through all during the meeting as she helps me navigate my feelings, explore new ones, become aware of upcoming events that might be triggering, and she can steer me away. I appreciate her I’m so many ways .

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.
