How Psychotherapy Can Help
Enjoy the convenience and comfort of a counseling session within your own space. Whether at home or in the office, you can video chat with your therapist. Online video session is a live session similar to an office appointment, and it just may be the right choice for you.
MANY OF THE GRAY MATTERS CLIENTS CHOOSE A TELEHEALTH VIDEO COUNSELING SESSION BECAUSE THEY:

? Do not have access to professionals in their area
No matter what your reason, I?d be happy to schedule an online video session at your convenience. Whether you live outside of the Simi Valley area or cannot travel to my office for whatever reason, we can use online video counseling as a solution.
